I am thankful. Maybe there will be more than five people traveling.

Hello hime, and welcome to IndiaMike

Can you tell us how many people there will be in your travel group? If there are more than 5 travellers, I would highly recommend going together either in a small 10-12 seater car, such as a 'Tempo Traveller', or on an even larger luxury coach such as a Volvo, chartered exclusively for your group.

Instead of travelling independently, I'd suggest that you go for a company which operates such tours. The logistics may best be handled by such an experienced tour group in that field.

There are two companies in Japan which do bigger group tours very similar, but can accommodate private tour for smaller group. We think we will be 2+5 ?

I also think maybe some Indian companys will also have boutique(sp?) arrangement ?

Tata motors make many types of cars. Find out which model.
Tempo traveller has 15 seats so will give you more room.

Which dates are you selecting? I think the tours would be on a specific date.

PS: Just saw the program. No dates are given for the tour.

We are now seven. If we become 10, then some companies in Japan make custom tour with japanese guide. It will be little more comfort to three older people.

We try for Urabon-e (Ullambana) in India. Maybe difficult if weather is not good (1st week Sept)

One suggested we go with Singapore Airlines or Thai Airways because we fly to Delhi and go out Calcutta.

Do the reverse. There are more options in terms of hospitality and comfort in New Delhi, including a japanese affliated luxury hotel chain - The Met

If you fly through Delhi, you can take a direct flight to Gaya (near Bodhgaya) from there. Not possible from Kolkata; from CCU only possible to Patna.

If you absolutely want to go through Kolkata, then better get a direct flight from Bangkok. No need to go to Delhi.

There is a Japanese (?) hotel chain at some places on the Buddhist circuit:

at Bodhgaya, Kushinagar, Shravasti

They also offer Buddhist tours
