How to Book

We don’t believe in off-the-shelf packages - we tailor-make holidays.

  • Tell us what you want to do. Whether you have detailed plans or just a vague idea, get in contact – we have knowledge, ideas and expertise.
  • We build a tailored itinerary. Once you’ve received it, we can answer any further questions and refine it until you are completely happy.
  • Book it. When you are satisfied with all the arrangements, we ask you to complete a booking form and pay a deposit, at which point we start confirming everything.

Different Snow is a fully bonded tour operator, which means we automatically take responsibility for your whole holiday, offering you 100% financial security.

At Different Snow, we love a good ryokan, but after all the stimulation that Tokyo offers – or some might say, inflicts – even the most energetic city fiend will be in need of some replenishing downtime; and that is best served up by the famously slick and hi-tech top-end hotels. That’s why our picks might seem unusually ‘international’ – a little taste of the high life really takes the edge off the madness, so you can greet each day feeling pampered rather than weary. Plus, Tokyo really knows how to do luxury – if you’re going to splash out anywhere, do it here!

The sheer size of the city means it’s sensible to consider location and convenience, so all of our hotels are within walking distance of the JR Yamanote Line – our trip notes will explain why this is important.
