architecture come alive

to a plethora of interesting and renowned art and

architecture pieces. Art enthusiasts and families alike
often come to Naoshima - with the salty air from the
ocean breeze adding to the enjoyment of many outdoor
art pieces, it’s truly like a dream. Every three years,the
island hosts an event called the Setouchi Triennale, an
art festival that takes place on Naoshima as well as two
other neighboring islands. The art festival show cases
various contemporary art throughout the islands in an
effort to not only keep the heart of the island alive as
an art destination, but also to bring more people to the

islands to discover the beauty of it.

Welcome Back to Travel

The New Standards of Safety

HIS Letter to You:

Welcome back to travel! It’s been a tumultuous
year for travel and safety. We here at HIS value
the importance of safety for our clients. That’s
why we’re keeping up to date on all the latest
information on safety measures, ensuring that
our client’s will be kept safe on their travels -
both by precautions taken by us and also by
the airlines you encounter. We’re ready to be
with you every step of the way.

It’s time to start thinking about travel again!
While the future is ever-changing and unpredictable, we know that with
the events of 2020, travel will never be quite the same ever again. We
know how important safety is, and that it comes first - especially when
it comes to travel.

Airlines, travel agencies, and the like have been implementing measures
to make sure that the quality of safety is up to par with new travel safety
regulations. Whether that includes newer cleaning and disinfecting
methods, rules about wearing masks, or newer passenger screening
methods for illness and fever, airlines are taking very seriously keeping
passengers safe.

flights with us, we can let you know what safety precautions
your airline has implemented. We’ll work with you to choose
the safest travel routes, whether that means limiting your

Thank you for trusting HIS with your next trip. We’re so
excited to be there for you!

Package Tours
Travel Simplified

Package tours are the perfect pre-planned, stress-
free way to travel. These packages put together tours,
accommodation, and sometimes meals as a whole package

to make things a whole lot simpler.

At HIS, we have many packages perfect for those who want
to see the sights of Japan. Although custom itineraries are
great, package tours are a great way to save time and money.
Often custom itineraries end up resembling already existing

packages but with a larger price tag.

Our tours are balanced between places travelers tend to
request, and fresher scenes that are expert recommendations.

Everything is chosen carefully to take into account time,
location, and activities.

Cater to your travel needs and choose between group tours,
private tours, and independent tours. Take a look at just

some of the package tours we offer - Package tours are travel
simplified.

*Group tours travel with others in a large group, private tours
travels in your own private group, and independent usually

only includes basics like accommodation and short-term
activities.

Although restrictions do apply, there are possibilities
where younger people can participate in homestay as well.
Because this is not a hotel or a hostel, it is an amazing
chance to experience a night in a local Japanese home.

One thing to remember is that this might not be the program
for you if you are looking for an “affordable accommodation

their best to communicate; however, they are the locals.
Their English might not be perfect, but you have to take that
as the part of the experience. Enjoy the foreign culture, local
home, the experience of not being able to communicate with
just language in a comfortable home.
