Participation is limited to 17 per session and is first-come, first-serve based. Your position is not secure until 100% payment is received. Additional questions? Contact Paul via Voxer (paulakers or paul@fastcap.com) or Signal (+13609413748).

What’s not included: Air transportation to and from Japan. Airport transfers on the day of arrival and on the day of departure. Those should only run $20-$30 each way. Most dinners are not included but there will be 2 dinners that we will provide that will be wonderful. Simply put, once you’re in the country, unless you’re a crazy drinker or spender, you should not spend more than $100 – $200 USD. The trip is very comprehensive.
