As much as I'd love to visit Pierrot, the price tag is nearly $3000...

Yeah, and that's only if you live in LA apparently. If they offed single-day event tickets to go see a studio or what have you then I'd be all for it, but asking me to hand over $3,000 so they can purchase a whole vacation in my name doesn't sound like a very good value to me. But maybe everything they do is top-notch. I've never been on a packaged tour so maybe it's somehow worth all that money. Still, the idea of sleeping in the same room with a stranger and having to hand over lots of money with no chance of getting any of it back less than a month out if I get sick kind of puts me off a bit.

Hi! I'm Ryan from Pop Japan Travel. Thanks for discussing our awesome upcoming Cold Steel Tour.

Though $2719 might seem expensive (see www.popjapantravel.com for a $100 discount offer!), when you think about it, this price is an amazing offer. Included in the pricetag is all hotel accomodations and nonstop airfare to Japan, all transportation once in Japan, the exclusive meeting with Gloomy Bear creator, Mori Chack, the visit to Studio Pierrot, bilingual tour guides to break any language barrier, custom-made guidebooks, exclusive coupons to great stores in Akihabara, and more surprises.

Actually, it's quite a bargain!!

Additionally, though this is the price from LAX, we can happily arrange flights for anyone from anywhere in the world! Depending on the flight, this could mean an even cheaper tour package for you!

Check out www.popjapantravel.com for more details.

Hope to see you in Japan!!
