Our tour guide, Billy, made the trip so enjoyable. He has an excellent command of the English language and his knowledge of Japanese history and social norms are impressive!

This tour is very comprehensive. We felt we had a true Japanese experience. It was great to stay in the true rokan and have an onsen available for our use. We were very happy that we were able to meet with the maikos and learn about them. Riding the bullet train, attending a kimono show and being immersed in the Japanese culture was a truly rewarding experience.

We had the best group tour that we have ever done over our many years of travelling. Each day was a highlight - we enjoyed the sights, the experiences, the food, the train rides and the culture. The standard of the coaches we had were excellent, all coach drivers were friendly and accommodating. Our accommodation throughout could not be faulted, including the ryokans. Our tour guide was the best, a BIG thank you to Hiroko for making our trip so enjoyable - truly a huge asset to the company. The other guests were considerate, prompt and lovely. We can highly recommend using All Japan Tours and are hoping to return in a few years time to explore further north in the Autumn.

Our guide Hiroko was wonderful. Full of energy. Attended our every needs. Very knowledgeable about Japan. The driver was the best! I am usually a very nervous rider when someone else drives. I had no issues with her at all. Wonderful.

My husband & I would like to let you know that we have
just completed a marvellous AJT Autumn Leaves Tour.
We were recommended by Janesco Sydney to join
your tour (they organised this for us) and we have been
most impressed with the tour from “go to whoa”. Our
Japanese guide Kim Kida (Kim) was absolutely
marvellous & couldn’t have done more to help us. Even
at the end of the tour she managed to organise an
earlier plane flight for us from Fukuoka to Tokyo after
the tour finished & since she was also flying to Tokyo
on this earlier flight, she guided & stayed with us right
up to our hotel nearby Shinagawa Station Tokyo. We
can’t compliment her enough as she smoothed the
whole tour & gave us every information possible about
the areas, cities & day to day activities of the tour.
The tour was very comprehensive & took us to some beautiful places that were not on the itinerary of many other tours of Japan. We were also impressed with the standard of accommodation booked for us by AJT.
Thank you very much for our fantastic tour of Japan.

I rate this tour A++. There were many options for Japan tours when I made my choice, and I am sure none of the others could surpass or even equal the wonderful experience I had with AJT. From the contacts with the USA office (thanks, Hiroko Martin) to the arrangements in Japan, all was wholly professional and first-rate. I recommend this company unreservedly. I want particularly to commend Kim, our tour guide for the second week. We learned so much from her about her country and its people, its past and present, its culture and customs. She was always so cheerful and accommodating, and perfectly balanced thepersonal and professional in her commentaries. Bravo, Kim! I know I will be returning to Japan, very soon, I hope, and I would be simply delighted if I knew in advance how to sign up for one of her tours. She is the BEST!

This is a journey that might have been superb but ended up less than perfect even though our second week with Kim was much better, closer to what it should have been from the start. Our tour guide for the first week was awful, a disgrace to have a group of 16 people under the care of a such poor tour leader. That being said, I give credit to AJT for reacting promptly, adding a second guide from day 4 and later providing a very good guide, Kim, for a very enjoyable week 2. There were also a few minor issues that should easily have been avoided: Hassle-free baggage handling was anything but during week 1. The hotel substitution in Hiroshima was less than adequate. On 3 occasions, when dinner was on our own, the hotel selected was badly situated, with no dining options nearby. One listed traditional japanese dinner was replaced by a non-descript buffet. But overall, this was still a pleasant journey, nicely put together.
