Now what? (travel to Japan)

To our surprise, the travel agent we've been dealing with says that he doesn't think he can help us because the kinds of hotels we want don't deal with U.S. travel agents.

So, help us, Internet. Will travel agencies deal with people who aren't local, or will there have to be some in-person dealings? (There are at least two travel agencies that specialize in Japan with offices in New York City.) Or we could just book it all ourselves: in which case, can anyone recommend a stand-alone travel insurance policy?

Grumble mutter grump. Now I feel like we have to hurry up and deal with this, because we'd been prodding the travel agent to get back to us for so long, and the Worldcon hotels, at least, want reservations by the end of the month. I was hoping to not have to deal with any this: that's why we went to a travel agent in the first place.

(And has anyone actually heard from the travel agency that's in charge of the hotels for Worldcon?)
