All about the Japan 2021. 22 July – 9 August 2021.

From the 23td July – 8th August 2021, Tokyo will welcome the best athletes in the world to what promises to be an amazing event. The city of over thirteen million people will play host to over 10,500 athletes and sports fans from all around the world over 16 days of competition.

We are not an official tour provider for the Tokyo Organising Committee for Olympic Games, the IOC or any affiliated National Olympic Committee (NOC) and have no affiliation with any of these groups. This simply means that people will have to source tickets independently of booking the tour packages, either through family/friends competing or the public ticket booking system.

Our staff, in conjunction with our Tokyo-based agents and suppliers, will provide the best experience possible and will cater for your every need during your trip. Accommodation, flights, transfers, stopovers, sightseeing, day trips, events & functions, merchandise, plus 24/7 assistance are all included in what will be a memorable experience.

AREAS OF TOKYO

The Athletes Village and a lot of venues are across the bridge to the East on Tokyo Bay, which also houses Tokyo Disneyland. The Bay stretches further around to Chiba, Ichihara and several other towns. Narita Airport is also in this area further inland to the east

Having provided tours to Athens (2004), Beijing (2008), London (2012) & Rio (2016), our tour to Japan in 2020 will make us one of the longest serving continuous providers of tours to this event. We cater for supporters of any sport and includes family and friends of many of the athletes attending, as well as a wide variety of sports fan.

Our people attend nearly every sport on the program, but we have specific groups travelling to watch Hockey, Basketball, Softball, Baseball, Rowing, Water Polo, Volleyball, Athletics, Swimming, Canoeing, Rugby and Shooting, amongst others.

SELECTION GUARANTEE

We appreciate that many people only wish to travel to Tokyo if a particular person is competing. Waiting to secure accommodation until selections are confirmed is not really an options as most places are sold out years in advance. As such, to assist families, we provide a “SELECTION GUARANTEE” for family members who book any of our tour packages.

While we don’t guarantee that certain people will be selected (how good would that be?!?!?!), we allow you to confirm your place on the tour, but make it possible to cancel once final team selections are made if required and receive a refund on your tour price, less an administration fee.

TICKETING

Travel Packages do not include tickets and must be arranged independently. At no stage can SportsLink Travel provide tickets as part of their travel packages, as this is solely the right of the official supplier.
The main two options available to people are:

  1. Competitor allocation – For most sports, athletes selected have the option to purchase up to 4 tickets for each session they compete in through the Olympic Committee and National Sporting Organisation.
    This allocation may vary between sports, with swimming & track cycling the most likely to have a reduced allocation.
  2. Official Ticket Supplier – CoSport have the rights in Australia, with NZ Olympic Travel having the options in New Zealand. For other countries, check the Tokyo games website for list of Official Ticket Agents. Worldwide ticket sales for all remaining tickets will occur in 2020 through the official ticketing website

We also have contingencies in place for anyone who may miss out initially, including facilitating exchanges between supporters with excess tickets that they wish to pass these on.

CHILD RATES

  • Children 5 & Under are at no charge and are not counted in the number sharing the room (eg. Triple, Quad)
  • Children 6 – 13 years, staying with adult at full rate, receive a 30% reduction in the cost,
  • Children aged 14 years and above are charged full price.

BOOKING TERMS

  • Bookings are taken on “first come, first booked” basis initially.
  • Any subsequent hotel offers will be offered to people with current bookings prior to public release
  • Additional terms and conditions are included at end of this document or as separate document.

This allows you to place your deposit to secure your place in Tokyo, but still have the flexibility to change this if
other accommodation becomes available that may be preferable to you.

  • Deposit (50%) – On booking

We currently offer 4 booking periods,

  • Full 18 nights,
  • last 12 nights,
  • first 11 nights or
  • last 7 nights.

As all hotels impose a minimum booking period of 18 nights during this period, we must commit and pay for all 18 nights, regardless of actual usage. As rooms are extremely expensive, we must ensure that we utilise the full allocation of nights, and not have spare nights available that cant be sold resulting in a large financial loss.

There may be some slight movement on the end date of the 11 night and start of the 7 night if we can ensure full allocation is still met, however leaving spare nights at start (23rd July) and end (10th August) is not allowed, as it is unlikely that people will look to book for 1-2 nights only.

People can choose to arrive and depart on whichever date they have their booking for, but must pay for any unused nights.

Public transportation within Tokyo is dominated by an extensive network of clean and efficient trains and subways run by a variety of operators, with buses, monorails and trams playing a secondary feeder role. There are up to 62 electric train lines and more than 900 train stations in Tokyo.

While somewhat daunting at first due to the various networks and systems that interchange throughout the city, we will outline all the details of how to get to venues and other sights and our tour leaders will help show people the way to navigate the system over the first few days.

Hotel rooms in Tokyo are generally small and expensive. We have been offered rooms as small as 8m and a majority of rooms are around 15m. To compare, an average hotel room in Australia/NZ would start around 25m. Even at normal times, a 3 star hotel can cost $300+ per night and with the standard surcharges of 3-5 times normal price during premium event, the overall costs will
be high.

Apartments are very limited to find and much more expensive, while homestays like AirBNB are restricted through government regulation.

As expected, accommodation in popular areas like Shinjuku, Shibuya & Ginza are higher than some of the outer suburbs. The good thing however is that due to the extensive Tokyo transport system, all areas are very accessible no matter where you stay.

We have found some fantastic options with good size rooms at relatively good rates.
