Advertising, Affiliates and Sponsorships
Have you ever wondered how this site supports itself?
Tokyo-Top-Guide.com is my personal site. It accepts advertising and other forms of compensation but we do not receive any free products from the manufacturers or stores. Such compensation does not influence the information in this site. We always give our honest opinions, findings and reviews.
Rest assured that the actual content on sponsored pages are independent of any sponsorship or affiliate relationship. To avoid the appearance of any conflict of interest and in the spirit of full disclosure, I identify all sponsored content to you.
The views and opinions expressed on this website are purely the website’s own. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, experience or research, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
This website does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest. Anything on this site is here solely because it is the very best, based on independent, detailed and specialized research.
Advertisers, Sponsors and Affiliates
We run third party advertisements through Google (click here for more info on Google’s policies ) which are clearly identified as such.
Also we are part of a few affiliate programs because we believe they are excellent companies, and their products are helpful for visitors of this site.
Compensation received is in the form of a commission for the sale of products when you click through from this website to an advertiser’s website and purchase something within a specified time frame we’ll get a small commission.
When you click through TokyoTopGuide.com to these product or service providers, you are either paying the same amount as if you went to their site directly.
I also have several affiliate advertisers and sponsors that include, but are not limited to Amazon.
Tokyo-Top-Guide.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
If you click on their ad or text link and buy something, I get a small commission. If you prefer not to do this you can also go to Amazon and buy direct through them in which case I would not receive a commission. Either way the product will cost you the same amount.
Also we receive commission through PPC (Paid Per Click). PPC means if you click on their ad alone we receive a small commission for each click through and not for the purchase of an item.
If you find my website helpful, then I hope you will support my sponsors and recommendations. This site requires my time and effort to deliver original free content to you. Supporting my sponsors is a WIN-WIN-WIN for you, for me, and for them.
Our Tokyo-Top-Guide Sponsorship Policy
I accept sponsorship requests from high-quality establishments within each tourism category.
“Site Sponsors” are supporters from Tokyo’s tourism industry.
They form an A-list of Tokyo’s top tourism services.
Reviews are generally written well before a service becomes a sponsor. In any event, they are independent of the sponsorship.
Each and every one of the services listed are truly among our Tokyo favorites.
The review of a sponsor would be exactly the same with, or without, the “ad” in the right column.
If you enjoy Tokyo-Top-Guide, please support our sponsors. You will be pleased that you did!
