Pricing is set by the tour guides directly and not by AIN. The tour guide can chose a base currency of payment as JPY or USD. The tour guide has an option to receive the due cash payment in the local currency rate on the day of the tour only if all parties agree. Otherwise the currency and amount outlined on the confirmation of booking is the legal amount due.
The deposit of approximately 20% of the total cost of the tour, is payable to AIN on booking. This deposit is fully refundable to the booker only if the tour guide does not show on the tour day and time. For any other reasons the "deposit" is non-refundable to the booker.
The booker is responsible for paying the balance of the tour cost directly to the tour guide on the day of the tour.
To the contracts between customers, service providers and AIN, Japanese laws are applied.
