Hi guys, We hope you are all well. Just wanted to let you know that I will be in the UK on a family visit from the 1st until 16th July. While I will be checking emails, I won't be able to respond very quickly. If it is urgent, one of us will get back to you as soon as we can. Apologies for the inconvenience in advance and thank you for your understanding. Cheers, Ross

Hi guys, Due to an oversight on our part, we have lost access to our original email server (we can receive but not send emails). As a result of this we have now (at least temporarily) switched to info@elopeinjapan.com This switch may or may not be permanent. You of course, can still communicate with us here on the FORUM. We will keep you posted. Thanks Ross ands Ayako

Happy New year to one and all! We hope you had a restful Christmas and well deserved break, and are ready to enjoy whatever the New Year throws at you. We decided to take the last week to 10 days off completely for some R&R and are now back in the office. We have, as have you, been keeping a close eye on the fluid COVID situation, and have been updating the FORUM with pertinent info when it comes through. Right up to the discovery of the Omicron variant, we were hopeful of a restart in Spring. Our optimism was rewarded in the final weeks of November when the government started to relax the entry restrictions at the borders. However, as soon as Omicron was discovered, they slammed them shut again, and that is the situation we are in currently - 4th January 2022. As more news and data comes in regarding the reduced hospitalizations and death rates, new rumors have started that the government might relax border entry again, as long as all entrees are fully vaccinated and boosted - though, the sticking point seems to be quarantines: will they be necessary? If so, how long? The keyword in that last paragraph is “rumor”. So, where does that leave us? Sadly, none of the above helps us at all. The borders are still closed and we have no idea when they will open. As we have seen throughout this pandemic, the situation can change at the drop of a hat, either opening up possibilities or cruelly taking them away. Our advice this year is the same as it was last year. Give yourselves a final cut-off date by which you decide to either push ahead and hope for the best or simply postpone… again… We suggest making the decision about your cut-off date as soon as possible, so that if you decide to postpone it to later this year or next, we might be able to fit you in. As you can imagine, we now have a backlog of events dating back over two years. The important thing is to get in early. We are doing our best to keep dates open for postponing couples, but judging by the hits we are continuing to get on the website, Japan is still a favored destination for elopement and wedding couples. Therefore, as soon as the borders are opened, we are expecting a flurry of inquiries which will make it increasingly difficult to keep dates open. As always, we will be happy to talk in person and thrash out new dates (and plans, if necessary). Let us know your thoughts. Have a great day and a good start to the year and we hope to hear from you soon. Best wishes, Ayako & Ross

We hope you are all well and had a restful break! We are now back in the office after taking a week to ten days off for some R&R. We wish you all the very best as you begin 2022, which will, fingers crossed, see a return of international travel! We have all waited long enough!!! Stay well!

Hello one and all, We wanted to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year. After almost 2 years of this COVID enforced limbo, we are growing cautiously optimistic - despite the Omicron setback - that 2022 will see a return to weddings in some form or another. We thank you for your patience and continued support, and can't wait to meet you all in person when you do finally make it out to Japan. Once you are out here, your trip will be all the more special after the long wait, and we can't wait to give you the wedding you have long been looking forward to! For now, stay safe, stay well and enjoy the well deserved Christmas break. Love to you all from Ayako, Ross, Miles and Chick (the dogs wouldn't pose in the same photo, so we took two!!) 🎅🏻🎅🏻🎅🏻
Merry Christmas!! content media
