Lynn was a wonderful guide and made the tour very well planned and organized. There were a balanced and good variety of experiences. Lots of wonderful memories. We particularly enjoyed seeing Shikisai Hill, visiting the glass shops in Otaru ( I purchased two beautiful glasses), visiting the Historic Village, and seeing the Ainu exhibition. I wish that some of the Ainu objects had been available for sale. They were beautiful. We really enjoyed making our own donburi and eating at the Furukawa Fish Market. It was one of our most fun memories. One of the highlights of our trip was visiting the Nebuta Warasse and then later that evening seeing the Nebuta Matsuri. That festival and the Kanto Festival the next evening were the most unique and enjoyable experiences of our tour. The visit to the Akita City Folk Traditions Hall and seeing the Kanto demonstrations was fun and very helpful to understand the actual festival activities. The Kakunodate samurai district and Aoyagi House were interesting and so was the visit to Chusonji Temple in Hiraizumi. In addition to seeing the festivals my favorite parts of this tour were taking the nature walks. I would have been happy to take a nature walk every day. They were so beautiful. We missed Nikko because of a hurricane but instead we had a wonderful trip to the Tokyo-Edo Museum and a terrific lunch at a sumo restaurant which was an unexpected benefit. All in all, this was a wonderful tour and our friends are joining AJT for a tour to Hokkaido next year to visit the flower festivals. Thank you for a great trip.

Aloha Yumiko & All Japan Tours,
I would like to let you know what a great experience we had on our recent Charms of Northern Japan tour.
Our guide Kim Ng was terrific as she explained in detail about all the culture, people, food, sights, everything.
Kim was also very organized and very knowledgeable about things we didn't even know we needed to understand.
She anticipated all our needs and made sure we were happy with everything.
The driver Matsuo was also very safe, attentive and punctual...
When and if we go to Japan again I wouldn't hesitate to contact All Japan Yours again..
