April 4th – Information Meeting for Fall Trip to Japan

japan-trip-2013-flyer

Japan Trip Meeting
Thursday, April 4th
4:00 p.m.
Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce
202 S. John Q. Hammons Pkwy.

This is for everyone interested in finding out more information on the Springfield Sister Cities Association Oct. 29-Nov.7 trip to our sister city of Isesaki, Japan, followed by touring of Kyoto, Nara and Tokyo.

We will provide information about the trip, including places we will tour, ryokans (Japanese style bed and breakfast,) protocol, etc.

We really need deposits from folks that want us to hold a spot. This trip is limited to 16 members so we don’t want you to lose out.

And remember, if you prefer the land-only option of this tour package the price is $2500. You need to start searching for flights that will allow for you to be at the Tokyo Narita airport late afternoon / early evening on Oct. 30th. This is when we will be picked up by our friends from Isesaki City Hall.

If you prefer to have our travel agent, Linda Baker at The Travel Group, book the plane portion of the trip for you then she will search for the cheapest price and make sure you arrive on time.  If you go through her individually you can try to use frequent flyer miles. If you want us to book your land package and flight all together then we will just add the cost of the best flight we can find to the $2500 land package price.

Sorry for any earlier confusion, but after we published the original information, we had a lot of requests from folks to use their own miles.   Rest assured, we can work anything out with you!

If you have questions, please call me 864-1341 or email me here!
