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.

EXCELLENT TOUR!!!!!! My guide, Ms. Katsume Miharu was an excellent guide. To be honest I think she is the one that made this tour so exceptional. Miharu was knowledgeable, professional and very funny. She has given me an excellent insight of the rich history, culture and the customs of the Japanese people. She was very professional and handled a very difficult customer with such ease and grace. She is one top notch tour guide. I plan to go back to Japan with my husband and I am definitely going to request for Miharu.

Kim was an excellent tour guide! She was extremely knowledgeable and was always ready to assist us and make sure that we had a wonderful experience. She was great at managing us as well as the other tourists on our trip. Our driver, Hirakawa-san is hands down the best driver I have ever had. He was extremely polite and always greeted us and prepared the tour bus accordingly whenever we entered and exited. I loved the onsen experience and the culture I was able to engage in. Japan is a very beautiful country and surrounded by such breathtaking scenery. The food and tour service was top notch! I'm glad I picked All Japan Tours for my first visit to Japan. Thank you so much AJT, I had a wonderful vacation!

I have always dreamed of going to Japan and All Japan Tours has helped me make this dream possible. They made my first experience of traveling to Japan a wonderful time that I will cherish forever. The Golden Route of Japan Tour gave us the opportunity to visit many important landmarks between the areas of Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo. Our tour guide was very kind and knowledgeable of all the sites we had visited. She kept us informed on the historical significance of each site as we traveled towards a destination. She also kept tour organized and well paced through out each day. The hotel rooms and meals that were provided were all excellent. All Japan Tours is very accommodating and quick to reply with any questions or concerns when planning for a tour. I would absolutely travel with All Japan Tours again and look forward to another great experience with them. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in going to Japan.

My wife and I just returned from our second trip with AJT. This was Hokkaido and Northern Japan. We had a wonderful trip and thinking about returning to Japan to explore Southern Japan. Our tour guide was Billy Hayashi who was exceptional. We had him for our first trip to Japan and we’re extremely happy to have him as our tour guide again.

Our sincere gratitute goes Ms. Kisako Rhine for all the impressive arrangements she kindly made, and for her prompt and thoughtful responses on emails. Our big THANK YOU to Ms. Rhine.

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.
