$400 deposits for 8 nights lodging at the Tokyo 2020 Games! And if that sounds like a lot for you, in one of the wealthiest cities on planet Earth, during the Olympics, in the heart of Tokyo, in the year 2020, going to recommend you not look any further! It’s important we all not fall prey to this new world’s Airbnb-mentality of “I could do this on my own for less.” Yes, I believe that’s possible. I believe you can rent someone’s strange apartment in a strange neighborhood, that may or may not have AC, and may or may not be clean…for less. But if you want to have it all laid out for you, vetted for you, and have a built-in crew for 8 nights that will last a lifetime, you come with us! It’s true, accommodations are not spacious. We can say that outloud and get past it. But man oh man does it boldy check every other box under the sun.
- 8 nights lodging, from Opening Ceremonies to the start of the second week of the Olympics
- All scouting fees incurred
- All inflation incurred between now and 2020
- This awesome new website
- Translator and guide, Lauren Zelek – who I’ve been paying to source accommodations, structure contracts, and strengthen my relationship with our accommodations host
Drafting – Not allowed I’m afraid. The, “We’re going to do our own thing, but let us know what you’re up to, we’ll stop by and hang out, and I have a few questions on ticket tactics” can’t happen. Will see you out in Tokyo for sure! Will hang at events for sure! But…you’re with the group or you’re not with the group. Our common space, with all participants, will be at capacity.
Deposits – $400 non-refundable deposits are due on August 1, 2018. This is less than two years before the summer games. If I can scout out Tokyo in December 2017, build this website in the Spring of 2018, and risk filling 100+ beds at the next Olympic Summer Games, you can commit to $400 this summer! I have to stress this is a “non-refundable” deposit. If you’re in, you’re in! Your spot is solidified through July 1, 2019 with that deposit, at which time, your final payment is due. That is your “hold my spot for a year” fee. And if for whatever reason you end up not attending, that is a giant bummer, but you’ve paid to claim the right from August 2018 through July 2019. Need to say this out loud so there is no confusion as the months pass – regardless of one’s situation (under your control or out of your control). I personally have never taken this kind of risk before, with this many beds, at this price point so…thank you for understanding. And looking forward to seeing all friends and family committed by August 1, 2018!
Final Payment – I know, I know. You’re looking high and low for the final payment number. I will not be sharing that on this public site. To get the final payment number, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or join our private Facebook page, where I’ll post that information. There comes a time when this public site can’t disclose everything. Thanks for understanding!
- $400 due by August 1, 2018

Register here on August 1, 2018! Credit cards will be accepted from there on in.
