Beautiful people and beautiful country and visited some great places but disappointed with the lack of communication provided by this company and don’t think we got value for the money it cost. Our guide was lovely but would have liked a bit more history about each of the places we visited. Trying to book accommodation before and after the tour was problematic and we did not stay in any of the accommodation that was listed on the itinerary and I think only one was a four star. On forwarding of luggage was fantastic and bullet train, Rapid express and local trains, buses and ferries were very well organised. More time needed in Tokyo with more assistance with what to see and do

I recently embarked on a captivating journey through some of Japan’s most renowned destinations as part of a tour. Our itinerary included Tokyo, Hakone, Hiroshima, Miyajima Island, Himeji Castle, and Kyoto, each offering its own unique charm.
After immersing ourselves in the bustling metropolis of Tokyo, we made our way to Hakone, where we were treated to breathtaking views of Mount Fuji and the great experience of soaking in an onsen.
In Hiroshima, we absorbed all the fascinating details provided by our guide and then ventured to the natural beauty of Miyajima Island. There, we explored enchanting restaurants and shops, and were amazed by the serene atmosphere.
Following a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Himeji Castle, an inspiring fortress, we reached Kyoto. Our free time in this historic city included visits to the iconic Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion), as well as free time to explore Kasuga Taisha Shrine, the enchanting Bamboo Garden, and the delightful Nara Deer Park.
Throughout our journey, our guide proved to be exceptional, ensuring our experience was both informative and enjoyable. The accommodations were comfortable, making this tour highly recommended for anyone seeking an enriching travel experience in Japan.
