Travelers are already planning their trip to Tokyo for the Olympics, taking place from July 24-August 9, 2020. Roadtrips, a tour operator, is seeing a particularly strong uptick in bookings for the summer games. The tour operator says that it has already sold more than half of its hotel rooms, ground transportation and local touring guide services it has reserved for its clients next summer.

According to David Guenther, president of Roadtrips, travelers looking to stay in Tokyo for the games should plan soon. He, and other travel experts, expect the 2020 games to be packed with people, which is in part due to Japan’s attractions. These include the Sensoji Temple and Asakusa Shrine in Tokyo’s Asakusa district, Ginza (a notable fashion destination) and Mount Fuji. Other Japan attractions include the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima, the architecture and entertainment district in Osaka, Fukuoka and the temples and palaces of Kyoto.

Roadtrips is offering customized travel packages, in partnership with travel advisors from Protravel International and Tzell Travel Group, that allow luxury tourists to choose from a plethora of hotels and restaurants, along with exclusive attractions and entertainment. Offerings include a demonstration at a private Sumo school, exploring Tokyo’s best shopping and foodie destinations with a local cultural expert and advisor. A local travel expert will provide VIP 24/7 services to help clients navigate any language or cultural issues upon arrival to Japan.
