Just completed a trip of a lifetime: The Golden Triangle of Japan (Reverse): Takayama Autumn Festival Tour 2019 October 6th, 2019 - October 13th, 2019 with added bonus Typhoon Hagibis! Thank you for a wonderful and impact filled journey. The sites, beautiful Kaiseki meals and extra experiences (Kimono show, Maiko/Geisha tea ceremony, sushi making, Shinkansen...) are so well thought out to provide a glimpse into so many aspects of Japan. Our tour guide Ai-san and driver Harada-san added to make this an A+ experience. Ai-san's Japan knowledge and most enjoyable delivery kept us most entertained. Together their thoughtful and genuine safety concerns in keeping the group updated on the approaching Typhoon Hagibis was much appreciated. I highly recommend over and over! Thank you so much!!

Able to see many temples and still have free time to ourselves. Our tour guide Ai was friendly and was always available for any help. She was knowledgeable of places we visited and culture of Japan.

A wonderfully planned and executed tour by AJT. Miharu, our guide in Japan, made the tour even more special. She was funny, knowledgeable, genuine and caring, a rare combination for any human being. I have never before seen a tour guide who took such care of her group, even pushing the wheelchair of one of the guests on several occasions! In spite of the typhoon, we were steered through the country with no interruption. Our driver who kept us safe for nine long days, was efficient, patient and committed to service. I doubt if we would have enjoyed the tour this much if not for Miharu. Thank you to AJT for all the little details, fantastic hotels, attractions, and activities. Thank you to AJT for your commitment to community events concerning seniors. We strongly recommend AJT if one is considering touring Japan.

This was an outstanding tour! Our tour guide, Ai was very knowledgeable, friendly and super helpful. We had a great driver too, Harada san. We had to deal with Typhoon Hagibis, but felt very safe and taken care of. I would definitely use All Japan Tours again.

Our all Japan tour guide Ms Katsume Miharu was most remarkable. Her energy, narrative of the locations covered, care for the tour passengers, particularly for the older members was very impressive. Her knowledge of demography of the cities and villages visited, and trending social norms of the country delivered with a sense of humour was outstanding. The driver Mr Uetake was helpful and cheerful too. Our ‘HanaTour-Discover Korea’ Tour guide Mr Jay Back was good, knowledgeable and energetic. He cared for our safety, meals and accommodation well. The driver Mr Lee was helpful and courteous too. We had Ms Jeanie on the last day of the tour on 'South Korea city tour' (due to cancellation of DMZ tour), and she was very caring and energetic, and supported us to inquire the status of our flights from South Korea to Japan during the typhoon 19. Overall we loved our tour, appreciate your selection of tour guides and drivers, accommodation, meals and the well planned itinerary. We felt we were cared for from pick-up at the airport until drop off at the airport/ airport hotel. We wish you all the very best

It was exactly what I was looking for in a comprehensive tour of a fascinating country. I would recommend AJT to anyone interested in exploring Japan.

Ai was our tour guide and she is very knowledgeable about the region, history, culture. I enjoyed her sense of humor too. She was a wonderful tour guide! I would highly recommend Ai Orikane. Another big plus was our small group of 11 ppl. This made all the difference. I enjoyed the ppl in our small group!

Ai was a very competent and interesting guide. Her knowledge of the sights visited was exceptional. Her caring attitude and organization abilities at very short notice was of the highest standard. Our Driver who was a very good driver was also very caring to my wife's inability to walk long distances and climb stairs. He went so far as to buy a wheelchair for her so that she was able to enjoy the tour and not miss out on sights that would otherwise be out of her ability to view. An exceptional team who went out of their way to uphold the very high standards to be expected from All Japan Tours. The company should be very proud to have these two employees represent them. The only negative observation would be that apart from the Wagyu Beef dinner there were too many cook your own meals. While this may be the norm for the Japanese, many other nationalities would not find this comfortable, although I appreciate that the Tour is an introduction to Japanese culture.
