What are the baggage and weight limits for checked baggage on flights to Japan? What are the fees for additional baggage?
We recommend 4 hours prior to international flights and 3 hours prior to domestic flights. This is advised as a precautionary measure due to the high volume of traffic and the fact that unexpected events often occur these days due to airport staff shortages and other factors.
In principle, this is not necessary. However, please note that if your ticket is issued separately, you may have to pick it up at Haneda once. Please also check at the airport of departure on the day of your flight.
This may be possible with some airlines. Arrangements are subject to a fee.

Reservations for Kintetsu Rate hotels can be made by contacting our hotel desk by email or other means. Our consultants will be happy to answer any other questions you may have.
If you have the membership number of the car rental company or hotel, you can log in with it and enter the necessary information to find your receipt in most cases. If you are still unable to find your receipt, please contact the front desk of the rental car company or hotel. If you still cannot find the receipt, you will need to contact the rental car company’s office or the hotel front desk. Depending on the nature of your question and the situation, you may be charged a fee for the procedure.
Some places will accept early check-in depending on room availability the day before, but many cannot guarantee it. If you must guarantee a room, you will need to take measures such as reserving a room the day before. Also, some hotels nowadays charge an additional fee for early check-in.
Please ‘ask’ to the front desk of the hotel, be sure to settle up and get a receipt when you do so.
The rates are based on a credit card payment requirement at the time of reservation or a non-refundable fee if the reservation is cancelled.
Kintetsu offers hotel rates with a 24-hour cancellation policy. In many cases, the Kintetsu Hotel Rate is the lowest price for the same conditions.
“Please start by contacting Kintetsu. In many cases, people are trying to check in at a different hotel or have different dates.”
We cannot make changes to the hotel based on your convenience. However, if there are significant issues with the service (such as objectively dirty rooms), we may contact you to confirm the situation and make necessary arrangements.
This occurred because the hotel charged on the day it entered the effective period of the cancellation policy. In reality, it can be prevented by confirming the payment method at the hotel front desk during check-in. However, with the increase in self-check-in options like KIOSKs, it’s easy to overlook this step. Once the charge has been made, some hotels have a policy that they won’t accept changes to the payment method, so please make sure to verify the payment method during check-out.
Please be sure to inform the front desk of your extended stay at least one night prior to check-out time. However, it may not be possible to extend the stay due to room availability on the date of the extension. Once a rental car is rented, it is the sole responsibility of the rental agency to make arrangements to extend the rental period. Please contact the rental agency with the Rental Agreement Number (RA#), which is different from the reservation number.
Some hotels offer connecting rooms while others do not. Please be sure to inform us of your preference when making a reservation. It may be request-based, but we will contact the hotel in advance to communicate your request. If you also wish for a neighboring room, we will follow a similar process. Additionally, depending on the arrangement, there may be an additional charge.
Although it depends on the hotel’s policy, many hotels may accept late check-out for an additional fee. Please note, however, that this is only an occurrence-based request and may not be available depending on the next day’s room availability. Please also check the hotel’s membership program, which may include late check-out as one of the preferential conditions.
During busy periods when many cars are rented out, it can take a long time to rent a car because cars are not returned on time. In order to avoid such a situation, we will give priority to trusted car rental companies. In addition, by signing up for a membership, you can show your loyalty to the rental company and avoid delays due to overbooking.
Insurance for car rentals can be confusing. Our sales staff will be happy to explain the details through webinars, etc., on a company-by-company basis, so please let our sales staff know.
If you notice scratches, ask to have the car replaced. Take pictures of the car before you rent it.

ESTA stands for Electronic System for Travel Authorization. It is an automated system that determines the eligibility of travelers to visit the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). The VWP allows citizens of certain countries to travel to the United States for tourism or business purposes for up to 90 days without obtaining a traditional visa.
Travelers from VWP-eligible countries are required to apply for ESTA online before entering the United States. The ESTA application collects biographical and eligibility information from the traveler. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reviews this information to determine if the traveler poses any security or law enforcement risks. If approved, the traveler receives authorization to travel to the United States under the VWP.
It’s important to note that ESTA is not a visa but an authorization to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program. Travelers who do not qualify for ESTA or plan to stay longer than 90 days or for purposes other than tourism or business should apply for a U.S. visa.
An eTA is an entry requirement for visa-exempt foreign nationals who are traveling to Canada by air. It’s electronically linked to your passport and allows you to board your flight to Canada.
