COVID 19 Policy

As of May 8, 2023, COVID 19 has been downgraded to a category V infectious disease (the same as the seasonal flu). As a result there are no longer any travel restrictions in place with regards to COVID 19; however in the unlikely event that this changes, we will resume offering COVID 19 travel protections as follows:

  1. If Japan border restrictions prevent tourist travel to Japan, international visitors will be permitted to defer their booking to a subsequent season. This policy only applies to Rising Sun products and services. Products booked with 3rd party suppliers (accommodation, transport etc) are subject to the cancellation terms of those suppliers.
  2. Any credits issued are valid for up to 2 years.
  3. If guests are unable to travel due to a COVID 19 infection, our standard terms and conditions stated above apply.

Rising Sun highly recommends all guests carry travel insurance that offers protection against COVID 19 related problems, other sickness, injury and/or travel interuption.
