Remote Lands, the world’s preeminent luxe and intrepid tour operator focused exclusively on Asia, is delighted to announce luxury travel programs to the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo taking place July 24 to August 9, 2020.
For this unique sporting event Remote Lands is currently offering a limited number of private customizable packages for each of three one-week periods, as well two group itineraries for 16 people including a Kyoto extension.
“We are thrilled to be offering the Tokyo Summer Games,” says Catherine Heald, co-founder and CEO at Remote Lands. “Japan is already one of our top travel destinations and now with the Summer Games we are seeing overwhelming excitement for the very limited space available.” With less than two years until the torch makes its way into the New National Stadium in Tokyo, events and venues – especially those coupled with luxury touring – are in extremely high demand.
Each Remote Lands package for the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo will include stays at 5-star luxury hotels, private round-trip airport transfers, daily breakfast, a personalized itinerary, on-site concierge service, and a transportation manager to advise on logistics.
Optional add-ons include VIP Arrival, room upgrades, Tokyo touring, private vehicle transfer to the games, and travel extensions to other interesting destinations in Japan.
Space is extremely limited and stays in 5-star hotels include Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo, Hilton Tokyo, Park Hyatt Tokyo, and Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, depending on travelers’ preferences and subject to availability. Games guests for the start of the games will be transferred to Kyoto by way of Japan’s famous “bullet train,” also known as Shinkansen. Touring in Kyoto before and after the Tokyo Summer Games will include signature Japan experiences, including geisha dinners and sumo experiences.
The 2020 Summer Games will see the addition of a number of long-awaited new sports to the roster of events, including skateboarding, surfing, karate, freestyle BMX, and baseball and softball will be returning, after a hiatus that began with the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing. The Tokyo Summer Games in 2020, officially the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, began recruiting volunteers for the Games just last week; this will be the second time Tokyo has hosted the Summer Games, the first being in 1964. Japan also hosted the Winter Games in Sapporo and Nagano.
Following the Tokyo Summer Games from August 25 to September 6 will be the 2020 Paralympics. The new Paralympic Games will feature powerchair football and Taekwondo for the first time, as well as badminton.
