Why use a travel agency?

Expertise and advice

Time saving

By using a travel agency, you won't have to spend hours planning your trip. The agency will take care of all the necessary bookings for you, saving you time and energy. All you have to do is indicate your destination, the number of people involved in the trip, the duration of your trip and your expectations so that they can meet them as best they can.

Managing the unexpected

If something goes wrong during your trip, the travel agency will be there to help you solve the problem quickly. Contact them quickly! They will do their best to help you and find a solution.

Attractive offers

Travel agencies can offer advantageous deals thanks to their relationship with hotels, airlines and other tourism providers. This means you can get good deals at low prices. You can also find some without going through them, but it will certainly be less recurrent and more difficult to book and for more limited periods.

Why go to Niseko ?

This is Japan's most famous ski area. Tourists flock here for the powdery snow and warm atmosphere. And in summer, when the snow is not there, take a mountain bike instead of your skis to tour the mountains and discover the region.

If you'd like to explore the surrounding area, you can do so by public transport or by car. Sapporo (for example) is the nearest major city to Niseko, and will introduce you to a different landscape and a new culture.

In conclusion, it is entirely possible to travel to Japan on your own. However, going through a agence de voyages has many advantages. With family or friends, this is a destination that will delight you. Choose your destination, the period during which you wish to travel, indicate your preferences and any information the agencies may need, and off you go!
