Schedule 2020

Dear Tucker friends,

Finally, we could decide the meeting dates and tour dates after the meeting. These are the only dates that we will be able to have a clinical session at the dental school clinic.

I apologize that we needed to change the meeting dates at the last moment because of the dental school.  Thank you very much for your understanding.

Tucker Japan member is working hard to organize the meeting and we are looking forward to seeing you in Tokyo.

Optional tour by JTB

There are a short tour (four days) and a long tour (seven days).

The approximate cost for the short tour will be 160,000 yen and the long tour will be 260,000 yen (train, bus, hotel, some breakfast, and lunch are included, dinner is not included). If you join the tour, you can see many places efficiently but if you consider this cost is too expensive, you can arrange your own tour too. Japan is a safe country.

Tour dates are fixed but the schedule on each day is tentative. After the tour, we will be back in Tokyo in the afternoon. If your flight departure is midnight, you do not need to take an extra stay in Tokyo on Oct 5.

Tour and Golf registration will be open soon. Once you register your email, you will receive email when they will be ready.

In order to block the large number of rooms at the Tokyo dome hotel and making tour for large number of people in Japan, Tucker Japan has to work with JTB tour agency. They are working hard to help this meeting too. Thank you for your understanding.

Questions & Answers

Are the meeting dates fixed?

YES! They are completely fixed. Please see the schedule section.
I apologize that we changed the dates after my announcement at the Morgantown meeting because of the place change for the clinical session.

Should we fly to Narita or Haneda?

Haneda is closer to the hotel than Narita.
I prefer Haneda because of easier access but I do not stick to Haneda. Usually, I decide the airport depends on my destination. I like to take a direct flight because it is easier and less trouble (no lost baggage!). If there are two choices, one transfer from Haneda or direct flight from Narita, I would take a direct flight from Narita.
There is not much really big difference. I recommend you to take an easier flight.
