Application and fitness assessment form
We do not accept participants on a first come, first served basis. Instead we collect applications and notify you of your status by August 1, 2019, at the latest. If you apply after August 1, we will notify you as soon as possible.
Single Rooms: Single rooms are generally not available on this trip due to the limited number of rooms at each accommodation on the Kumano Kodo. If you require one, please check the box in the application form below, and we’ll let you know if one becomes available because of the configuration of the group. If we are able to grant your request, we will also let you know of the additional fee. (Please note that a single room does not guarantee you a private bathroom, just a single bedroom).
Cost: The cost of the pilgrimage is $3,875. The price includes shared accommodations for nine nights, ground transportation in Japan from/to Osaka area and most meals. It does not include airfare or travel insurance which is required. For the complete list of included and not included items, please refer to this page.
Deposit upon acceptance: $1,875
Payment due September 1, 2019: $2,000
We accept payment by checks or PayPal (3% surcharge= Deposit $1,933, Payment $2,062) in USD
Should you need to withdraw your application prior to August 1, we will retain 20% of the cost of the trip, or $775. If you withdraw after August 1st, any additional refund of your deposit will depend upon whether we are able to find someone else to fill your place, but in any case it will be subject to the 20% retention fee.
We require that you protect your plans with travel insurance including emergency medical/dental coverage and emergency transportation coverage. In addition, we strongly encourage you to subscribe to www.roadid.com (or any other similar providers) so your medical emergency information is easily available to local emergency medical staff.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or schedule a call.
When we receive your application, we may call you for additional information.
If your application is accepted, we will email to get to know you, request any additional information if required, send you all applicable details, discuss the recommended physical training and schedule your first coaching session.
I look forward to welcoming you on this pilgrimage.
