JTB Travel has just put IRIS related package tour on sale! You can browse the detailed prices and itinerary on their website above.
JTB’s IRIS package tour also features stops at IRIS filming locations including transportations and accommodations. As opposed to their counterpart JR East’s View product that is either day-trip or one-night at a hotel, this JTB version are stretched over 2 nights or 3 nights taking you to many other places. If you prefer an extended trip to enjoy the sightseeing spots of Akita, JTB could be more preferable for you. If you wish to visit IRIS filming locations exclusively for a short time, JR would be the one for you!
