Luckily it was a small group (20) and it made getting to know each other very easy. Of course it being a friendly group was a plus. Our guide, Kim was wonderful and very helpful in all matters. There were times I wish she had a voice enhancement device as it was times hard to hear her in crowded venues. I also wish she had been able to hold up on talking about what we were seeing until all were able to reach her whenever she stopped. The food was very good as were the hotels.

Kim was excellent. Our first bus driver was excellent. Our second bus driver - for the last 3 days - was not very good. He did not use a GPS and he seemed unfamiliar with the drive. The food was great and all the sightseeing was fun and cultural. Nice selection of hotels. Everything was very good except the second bus driver.

She was kind , considerate, and very helpful She was always smiling and obliging. We were very happy to have her as our tour guide as she took extra effort to see to our well being.

This tour allowed us to see so many different places in Japan in a relatively short period of time. There was a good balance between time in the bus on the road and time out of the bus. Naturally, we made stops at places we would have loved to have spent more time at but now these are places we can go back to again. All of the historical stops, hotels, restaurants and shopping were super. And our tour guide Kim Kido was the best. She was so informative and she was great about sharing information about the people and real life in Japan. You are very lucky to have her.

We are very grateful to have Mr. Suzuki-san as our tour guide , he's a total star ... so nice and helpful, we also want to send our appreciation for Mr. Hirakawa-san who had taken us along our trip safely. The itinerary was excellent despite of our limited time, it would be nice if we add 2 or 3 more days so we can have more time to enjoy the onsen, view, shopping and foods. However, we are very satisfied with all the itinerary, accomodation, transportation and service.

This was an outstanding tour. We saw ancient sites, important cultural sites, World Heritage site, rural scenes of rice and persimmon harvests, modern cities and small villages and wonderful onsens. The oceans and their many islands, mountains tops and valleys, sand dunes and so many tunnels and bridges. Outstanding art, both Japanese and world class contemporary pieces, museums and their grounds and sites. Tadao Ando’s sites so impressed and inspired us with his vision. Chats with local people who were curious to know where we came from and who were so kind and helpful, and conversations with other tourists from Japan and other global regions. We ate foods from local fields and waters beautifully prepared and presented, bought fruits from local farmers’ markets and from Lawson’s, tried local favorites like okonomiyaki which was like a Mexican tostadas. Too many memories we have that we have no time and space to share right now. Exceptional guide and driver to take us where we always thought was even better than the day before.

We loved the knife factory. We appreciate Kiyoshi's help in whatever I enquired about. Kiyoshi was very flexible in changing our itinerary when circumstances changed. We would highly recommend Kiyoshi and AJT to any of our friends.

Our tour guide Kim and driver Tahara was great. Kim was a wealth of information to all of the sites we visited and Tahara made it sure we get to our destinations safely. The tour was on a relaxed pace and given us enough time to experience the tour sites. The AJT tour was a great start to our first Japan vacation. Thank you very much for making our vacation a great experience.
