Today, I called to the Korean Embassy to make sure that she does not need a visa in Korea during her transit. I made a reservation for a stay in a hotel near the Inchon International Airport, Seoul, on the 5th. Now, I need to make a reservation for a bus trip from Kofu to Narita International Airport.
