Frequently Asked Questions


How can I register for this trip

You can find the registration form at the top of the Japan 2022 page!


Can I travel with the group for part of the time and do my own thing for the rest of the time?

Yes, this trip is designed for self-travel.  Just let the coordinators know when you will be “doing your own thing” so that we can make the correct arrangements for the group travel portion 🙂


How old do I need to be to travel

You must be at least 18 to travel without a parent.  This trip is NOT designed for young children, so those wanting to bring children would need to make their own arrangements for children’s activities.


Do I have to pay through the FWJS/Dondoko?

No, you can pay for everything yourself.  BUT, one of the perks of traveling as a group is the ability to take advantage of group discounts.  We will get better rates on some items if we purchase as a group and those funds will need to be paid to FWJS/Dondoko ahead of time to secure those discounts.
