COVID-19 Travel Policy Guideline

To our valued customers and partners,

In light of the continued impact of COVID-19 on global travel and the everchanging response to the pandemic, it is vital that we at Tohoku Local Secret Tours
(TLST) continue to take appropriate measures and action to ensure the safety of our guests and partners.

It is with the above in mind that we have developed the following guidelines to safeguard the best interests and well-being of our guests, future travelers, our suppliers and our partners.

TLST will make every effort to re-accommodate client itineraries to a new date if they are in any way directly impacted by the Coronavirus.

I would like to reassure all of our clients with existing bookings, and those who are planning to travel with us in the future, that TLST is committed to providing the experiences and holidays that our guests have come to expect of us.

Should you have any queries or concerns regarding your booking or enquiry please contact our information desk.

Regards,
Raisuke Nishiya
CEO and Founder, Tohoku Local Secret Tours
