2. The tour itinerary may be changed due to traffic congestion, or other unforeseen circumstances. No refunds will be provided for changes in the itinerary.
3. Depending on road conditions, the tour may stop at a different parking area (rest area) instead of the Hanyu Parking Area. In this case, please note that the different rest area will not be a representation of an Edo Period town.
4. Arrival times may be delayed due to traffic conditions as this tour will travel by bus.
