Tour was well planned and executed. Hotels were good and enjoyed the activities such as sushi making, green tea brewing. Meals were varied and especially enjoyed the okonomyaki and shabu shabu. The anime part was perfect for my granddaughter and taught me some new things. The shopping was a bit too much, especially the stop at the komono factory, which was a complete waste of time. Our guide Miharu was excellent and shared so much about Japanese culture and family life. Would recomment this tour to others.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guides: Kim- san and Miharu-san were very professional, and communicated very effectively. Kim-san kicked off our tour like a pro! We felt like she knew exactly what she was talking about and became a familiar friend soon after! Miharu was funny, gracious, and is definitely the #1 Tour Guide we've experienced. The pace allowed us to see more than if we were to have come out by ourselves, and the local knowledge/access was appreciated. The shuttle bus was great, since not all locations were accessible by train. Exposure to the more rural and hidden areas was a boon to the experience. A big thank you goes out to our driver Michi-san, since he got us to-and-fro all around Japan safely. While I realize time was the biggest constraint, there were lost opportunities where we could have walked through nature (i.e. shrines, gardens & Mt. Fuji) for longer periods of time than a quick in-and-out. Having options for those who want to be more active versus sedentary would be appreciated.

organizing a customized group tour with participants from all over the world during a pandemic, with all the restrictions, is not easy - but it all worked out perfectly in the end and it was a very enjoyable tour!

We were a group of 4, my husband and I in our 70's, my daughter in her 40's and my grandson19. We went to Japan to learn about the history, culture, and food. Our guide, Kim, was absolutely marvelous. She talked to us about the history and culture in interesting talks, never too long, but complete. She was always open to our questions and did her best to fulfill all of our whims! I was so happy the tour included many typical meals beacuse otherwise we wouldn't have tried many of the things we were introduced to! We didn't like everything, but were happy to have a chance to try!

The tour we took was perfect. More busy up front and later with more time to rest on the bus. Number of meals covered and free time were also nice. Tour was perfect and service was excellent. Kim Kida-san, our guide gave us just the right amount of commentary and guidance. She always seemed to be there when we needed help and let us roam around about the right amount of time. She always could rearrange the order of activities to optimize our experience. She anticipated our needs. The driver Kamata-san was excellent. I felt very safe and comfortable riding on his bus. He takes such good care of the bus as well.
