No website? No problem

Planning to visit Japan? Japan has many unique islands full of nature, and also beautiful rural areas.  There are nice events such as Maiko dance happening every year.

 

How can you book an inn which only provide you a telephone number to book or a small and hidden but cool bar which is not even covered by TripAdvisor? 

 

We offer you the booking service for basically anything in Japan.

What we help

We help you book:

1) Hotel, minshuku, ryokan, inn

2) Events, concerts, shows

3) Restaurants

4) Anything else which is book-able

Major booking platform do not cover all

When you want to book a hotel in Japan, we have useful platforms like TripAdvisor, Booking.com, Expedia, Rakuten travel, Agoda, AirBnB etc. where yon can grasp the information about the accommodation and pay and book in your own language.

 

But there are so many accommodations in Japan which are not covered and do not want to be covered by these platform. These are usually small hotels, inns( Ryokans) and guesthouses in local area.

 

 

If you explore our travel articles where we introduce totally wonderful but unknown travel destinations in Japan, you will see many small accommodations are only providing you a Japanese only website or not even an website (probably just a telephone number).

How to book Small and Super Popular Restaurant

Many restaurants are not covered by any platform for foreigners. If you are familiar with Japan for internet scene for food sectors, there are websites such as Tabelog, Retty, Gurunavi, HotPepper which provide information about restaurants, bars (Izakaya) and pubs. Recently Tabelog starts English website ( not easy to use though).

 

Yet, some of these websites offer you a booking service and very famous restaurants like Sukiyabashi Jiro from Jiro Dreams of SushiRestaurant Kinoshita in Minami Shinjuku and the Japanese restaurant Kurogi in Yushima which you can book from their official pages directly, we notice these booking services basically cover major chain restaurants not small and good ones (hidden gems). 

 

We will do our best to reserve a seat for you but please be noted that there tend to be long waiting list for very popular restaurants in Japan, some are months and some are years.  

 

Beside restaurants, many of our customers also use our service to book concert tickets and book an event.

 

How it works

Japanese business esp. the ones which have even no website are conservatives. These are usually the owners of small inns, family run B&B, old restaurants etc. 

 

There are several steps to follow to secure the reservation. 

 

1. Give us the contact of venue you want to book. (or let us know you want a place to stay on this island or area etc. This way, we search a place for you.)

 

2. Give us the name, address and contact information (for hotel, all members and for a event and for a restaurant, one name and the number of guests in total depending on the owner, organizer)

 

3. We check if the venue has enough vacancy

 

4. We provide you with a quotation with bank information

 

5. After the full amount paid, we will contact the venue to reserve

Note: if there is a long time lag between each step, you may not be able to reserve the place. In such a case, we return the fee after we subtract the service fee, relevant bank transfer fee, tax etc.

 

Our service fee starts from 50USD per one successful deal (non-returnable even if in case of cancellation.) depending on difficulty.

 

For accommodation booking, many venues ask for no cancellation policy and you need to prepay the total fee (incl. bank transfer commission, relevant tax, and our service fee), which is understandable for small business with high risk.

This way, we will pay the venue in case of cancellation or no show in any circumstance.
