Anime Flavor: Tokyo & Kyoto Summer Tour

7/12/2024 - 7/19/2024 / 2024-07-12   

Dorean & Audrey Dow

My son and I took a graduation trip to Japan before he left for college. We love to travel, but we were anxious about trying to navigate Japan's large cities without knowing the language and norms. AJT was AMAZING though the whole process. Breana answered my questions quickly and communicated frequently with helpful information. We did the Anime Flavor Tour and loved it. Yashima met us at the airport and helped us exchange money, pick up our WiFi hotspot, and even explained the bathrooms. (IYKYK) ?? We immediately felt so comfortable with her and welcome. Such a sweet heart and went above and beyond to allow my son to see and do what he hoped to do, even explaining the rail system and outlining our stops when we wanted to explore in our free time in the evenings. The next day, she handed us over to Yuki and connected us with our tour group. Yuki was fantastic. Knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and very patient with all of us and our many unique needs. She's very good at her job, and not one detail was missed. The other travelers in our group were awesome--we quickly became a team. The itinerary was smartly crafted and a great blend of pop culture and local culture. The bus was clean and offered free wifi. Meals were experiences on their own, including shabu shabu, sushi, bento, and a full course meal. The hotels were comfortable and offered many amenities. The people of Japan were very kind and welcoming, and we are grateful for this experience. What a country, and what a great tour!

The breakfasts at the hotel were very good because they labeled the food for allergies. Especially the Kyoto hotel They were the best! They also offered a good variety of all kinds of foods so I could easily be filled and energized! I liked all the extra education and information the tour guide provided, that is always so interesting and helpful. The least pleasant event was the trip to the Maiko, I was concerned for the freedom and wellbeing of someone so young making the kind of binding agreement she did and the distance from her family support.

Trip of a lifetime. Our tour guide was amazing and really ensured everyone learned , was engaged and accommodated a variety of requests. This tour created a lifetime of memories for me and my son as well as a deep appreciation for Japanese culture, cuisine and heritage. Highly recommend to anyone looking to travel to Japan. Everything was taken care of, all we had to do was come enjoy , walk and learn! the hotel choices were great, food provided was plentiful and the group was the right size for strangers to now be friends. The bus and accommodations were comfy and the driver a true professional. Thank you Billy for all you did for our group. We had a blast.

The Golden Route Japan (Reverse): Summer Tour

6/24/2024 - 6/30/2024 / 2024-06-24   

Ms. LaGrone & Mr. Limpede

There were a few too many shrines and temples. The best part was learning about the culture and local customs. Our tour guide, Kim, was excellent and gave us insights into how the locals live as well as how society runs--things that tour brochures do not cover. If we were to return to Japan we would want to have Kim as a guide again as she was so pleasant, engaging and competent. The tour overall gets a rating of 4 but she gets a 5+.

Mr. Stalvig & Mr. Sparer

Well worth the price. If i hadn't booked this tour, i wouldn't have been able to see half the attractions and probably would have had to pay more. Kim-san made sure we were able to see everything on the itinerary, even with crazy weather making us switch things around. Nakano-san was a very capable driver and helped everyone get on the right bus. I really couldn't even imagine trying to book everything on my own and all of the hotels were top notch (right at the center of everything). Very pleasant experience.

This tour is exactly what we wanted for our first time in Japan. It's really just a taste of Japanese culture leaving you wanting to come back for more. We loved the tea ceremony, sushi making, Shinkansen (even if it was only for 1 stop), and the onsen hotel.

This is our second Private Custom Tour with AJT. Kiyoshi helped us create an itinerary that satisfied our entire party, even though we all had different interests. When there was a little confusion with the rooms (double vs twin), Justin went above and beyond to help us ensure the right booking for our party. AJT's attention to details are superb and they respond quickly to our inquiries. Our private tour was an Anime-focus tour centered around Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe. Our tour guides (Ken for Tokyo, Ito and driver for the rest of the tour), were professional, knowledgeable, energetic and flexible. The private coaches were a nice touch, especially with the hot weather during our stay. Ken and Ito introduced us to local restaurants where we would have otherwise been intimidated to try on our own, and helped us communicate our food allergies to the restaurant staff. Ken demonstrated his willingness to accommodate our group by bringing us to the various stops to collect our eki stamps in Tokyo. We also had to modify our meet times on several occasions because we were still enjoying the sites and all of our guides were very accommodating. One of our major highlights was the kimono experience Ito arranged for our group in Kyoto. The only item we would like to change for next time would be our hotel stay in Osaka. Unfortunately the hotel was located quite far from Osaka's JR Umeda train station that is filled with shops for us to explore and there weren't any hotel shuttle buses available. Overall, we had a great trip and would definitely recommend AJT to others.

We had a great trip and enjoyed the private tour experience. AJT put together an itinerary that included a nice mix of historical sites and cultural experiences. Our guides were knowledgeable and friendly and open to additional stops or detours. If we did another private tour, we'd spend more time looking customizing the itinerary to ensure the perfect mix for us.

Kim, our tour guide, was wonderful. The weather wasn't cooperative on some days but Kim made the best of it. I had hoped to see Mt Fuji but, like the Northern Lights, it requires some luck. I was also surprised how good the food was at the service areas. I would definitely recommend this trip to my friends. I will also consider other AJT trips.

Kim san and Nakano san were fantastic. Kim san frequently helped navigate the language and cultural differences. The history and backgrounds were enjoyable to learn. The accommodations, with the exception of the hotel in Nakita, were outstanding. Each meal included was exception. The transportation was fantastic.

Both of the guides, Melvin in Korea and Kim in Japan were both helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. The van/bus transportations were very clean, and the drivers were very professional. I loved all of the hotels that we stayed in, and was especially happy to be able to experience a hotel with a Japanese bath. My daughter especially loved all the food, and I loved the tea ceremony with the maiko.

In spite of a rough start to the tour. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Mr. Jett Lai was a superb and knowledgeable tour guide as well as very kind and accommodating. He was everything I would want in a tour guide. I hope to have him the next time I go to Taiwan. Kida Kim-san was my tour guide in Japan. She has such a great sense of humor and a is a great story teller. She also has an excellent memory. I understand she is going into semi-retirement after our tour. I really wish her the best. I would love to have her as a guide again in the future! Shoutout to Nakano-san for being a great driver he really is a trooper! Thanks for everything!

Ms. Hinton & Mr. Loux

This was our first time visiting Japan and it being halfway across the world, we wanted to make the most of it. AJT Service was wonderful before we even arrived with a detailed itinerary giving us an idea of what to expect when on the ground - an itinerary that very much took into account our personal interests as well as hitting some of the main highlights of Japan's history/culture. And the trip delivered everything it promised! Having a guide made the trip practically stress free - we were able to maximize our time spent immersed in the culture rather than the details of transit, luggage transfers, etc. The knowledge of the guides in finding places to eat, shop, and of the various historical sites was indispensable. I highly recommend All Japan Tours - they will work with you to create the exact trip you want. Thank you for giving us such a fabulous experience in Japan - we already can't wait to go back!

I cannot rave enough about this tour. Miharu and Joyce (subbed for 2 days) were our top notch hard working guides. I appreciate the history and interesting side stories were communicated on the bus, so at most locations we were able to explore on our own. The hotels, meals and coach were very comfortable & enjoyable. Everything was ready and prepared when the group arrived. The itinerary is well paced and full so you get your money's worth. The sushi making, Ninja throwing and Maiko tea ceremony & performance were so much fun and a compliment to just sight seeing. This was a very memorable trip with a great group of fellow travelers. All in all, a very well organized tour and I would not hesitate to book another with AJT.

Overall, the tour was a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you for this meaningful journey.

Our travel group of 4 adults and 15 teenagers had the most profoundly enjoyable and life changing experience touring Japan with All Japan Tours. Yuki, our guide, was very prepared, organized, flexible and very thoughtful. The sites, accommodations, transportation and food all exceeded our expectations. Last minute changes to our itinerary and food restrictions within our travel group were all handled with care and understanding. We intend to return to Japan and will only use All Japan Tours. The trip would not have been as wonderful without the caring support of our guide. Yuki is such a warm and thoughtful person who's good humor and care provided such an enjoyable experience. All members of our group have expressed so much gratitude for Yuki and truly miss her. Thank you Yuki!

This was my first trip to Japan, so I didn’t know what to expect. Our group spent a few days pre and post tour. The tour was fabulous! We took, “The Golden Route (Reverse) Japan Tour”. Every place we went, we spent just the right amount of time. Our tour guide (Barbara), gave us a lot of information about each of the places we visited along with the history, I found this to be very valuable. We kept on schedule and followed the itinerary to the tee. The bus driver and Barbara were both pleasant and nice, they took good care of us and our well being.

The best decision we made was to book a tour through AJT. Our guide, Miharu, did an excellent job and provided information and history before we arrived at each stop on our tour. She kept the itinerary focused and gave us just enough time at each location to get a taste of it. We cannot wait to return to Japan and visit some new places.

This tour was amazing. It allowed us to see so much of Japan and learn facts about the people & culture along the way. Our tour guide and drivers were professional & helpful. Before the tour, AJT helped answer my questions and helped arrange pre-tour transportation from the airport to the hotel. We would recommend to anyone searching for a tour to use AJT.

Everyone loved the stay at the Ryokan and the delicious kaiseki dinner. The group loved the Onsen at the different hotels. After touring, they found it so relaxing to head to the Onsen. We also loved traveling on the different transportation in Hiroshima. Riding on the bullet train, the ferry, the local train, the local bus and trolley……we were so impressed!

Excellent selection of potteries, museums, shrines (particularly the Shinto shrine at Tozan), ceremonies, walkabouts and experiences - highlights included the Izumiyama Stone Field porcelain quarry, kilns at Sasebo, Arita, Karatsu and Bizen. It was really wonderful to see potters at work making ceramic ware as we watched. Other highlights included meeting geiko Tomitsuyu and learning some new skills from a Zen monk. Also enjoyed the tea ceremony and the Kintsugi Experience. The 1000 Sanjusangen golden statues are indeed spectacular.

This tour was amazing with everything so well organized. The transportation was comfortable, accommodation was great (pretty much got 4-star hotels) and all the important touristy places were covered. It'd be hard for anyone to do the same itinerary on their own for sure. My fav. aspect of the tour is that it was not rushed and had ample time at each of the spots making it more enjoyable. Most importantly, our guide TREND was brilliant. She did an excellent job in taking care of the group, keeping it entertaining and educative. She always ensured we were all comfortable everywhere and especially in the restaurants where the menu was hard to understand given I had dietary restrictions leaving few choices. I'd recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for the highlights of Japan.

We had a trip of a lifetime! Our guide Joyce and driver, Yokomi-san were very professional and timely. We will miss them! They were very friendly and ensured our children (11 and 14) had an incredible experience! Joyce was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information about the sites we were seeing, made sure we had our tickets and did not lose anyone. We had plenty of time at each attraction to walk around, get snacks and use facilities - we never felt rushed or that we were wasting time. Sadly, there was too many clouds at Hakone to see anything. We had spent a lot of time riding to get there and saw nothing, so we ate the black egg and took photos, which was still memorable. The onsen hotel is the most beautiful hotel ever! We enjoyed using the family onsen and the kaiseki dinner.

You gave us your best driver, Mr. Aizawa. He was excellent in getting us safely to where we needed to be. Yukiko Ishiyama was a very helpful and knowledgeable guide. She welcomed us to Osaka, went with us to the hotel, and helped us check in; the same helpfulness when leaving Yonago, insuring that we and our bags had a smooth check-in. Yuki had a wealth of knowledge about the places we saw, answering our questions, making sure we knew the schedule and times (breakfast, hotel check-out, etc.). Rie Taki is the best in coordinating and helping to ensure everyone enjoyed the tour. I like that there was some flexibility or alternative when something scheduled could not happen (such as cancellation of Jibikiami experience, with alternative choices of remain at hotel or go to Yanaitsu). Overall, an excellent tour that I would recommend to my friends. Can't recall specific temples, parks, or nature, which is why those aren't checked off below. A lot of "wow" packed in this tour. For meals on our own, I like that there were suggestions as to where we could go to eat.

Rie and Yukiko (spelling?) - were the best I would travel them again. My wife does not like the stress of traveling, but both of them help us with transition between airports coming to Japan and returning to Seattle. Rie happened to be on the same flights traveling to Japan - helping us with transition between terminals. On the return Yukiko was on the same flight from Yonago to Tokyo, when the doors opened to the terminal and saw Rie waiting there to escort to the next terminal for our leg of the flight, she was elated with joy. We liked exploring the culture, landscapes, and people. We were not as fond of the shopping but understood many in the group wanted shopping, so it was OK. I am an amateur photographer and more interested in photography related adventures. Some the of rooms were very tight, we did like the spacious rooms. over all the trip was great, and so much food.

Ms. Randi Wilson

I think we had some of the best tour guides in all of Japan. Our first tour guide throughout Tokyo his name is Ken is absolutely amazing. Extremely insightful, energetic, friendly, informative, and by the end of our time with him, you genuinely feel like you’ve made a lifelong friend. Ken is somebody I would book with again and again and intend to in the future. I think the only time there was any miscommunication about the tour could’ve been when we went to the studio Gibley Park, because there was miscommunication about which kind of pass we had but aside at the rest of the trip was absolutely wonderful and it’s made me realize how much I love Japan, and intend to come back again and again. I enjoyed the shrines and temples in the castles a lot more than I thought I was going to, and gave me ideas for my next trip, which will be more revolving around the kids. I am absolutely astounded that you guys were even able to help me get concert tickets to a band I’ve been following for over 20 years and was initially sold out on the website so overall, even though we didn’t get through every single thing on the list, I feel like All Japan Tours really went above and beyond. everything from shopping to temples shrines castles just blew my expectations away. I cannot wait to come back to Japan.

Mrs. Stubbs

Our tour with AJT exceeded my expectations! Our tour guides were wonderful - very knowledgeable, competent, professional, enthusiastic, entertaining and fun (Miharu and Barbara). I loved how both would tell us the history about the places we were visiting while also sharing information about Japanese culture in general and telling us stories about their own day-to-day lives. The buses were clean and comfortable, and all of the experiences were thoroughly enjoyable. The hotels selected by AJT were excellent and of course the food was amazing. All the fun and none of the stress of planning a trip myself!

Ms. Chow

Great tour, itinerary covered many places in Hokkaido and allowed us to experience the country, the food, the sights, the nature unique to Hokkaido. We can still see the lovely cherry blossoms despite the tail end of the blooming season because of the locations include in the itinerary. The food included in the tour covered a wide variety of Japanese food, seafood was yummy, cooking style, ice creams, etc. Delicious. The accommodations hotel were great, all hotels offered great breakfast, and dinner, especially the Hilton Niseko Village hotel. The hot spring baths in the hotel offered an opportunity to experience this unique culture in Japan. The tour manager Trend San did an outstanding job in guiding us, very informative on all aspects of Japan, patient, resourceful, polite and respectful and accommodating to the specific needs of all members in the group. The driver, I apologized for forgetting his name was an excellent driver, careful and drove us to all our destinations safely and on time. We highly recommend this tour to all. We will also consider using AJT for all future tours to visit other parts of Japan. All in all, this was a memorable tour. Thanks. Also, thanks for the customer service in our booking and follow up on all our questions.

Our guide, Miharu-San was outstanding! She told excellent stories, was entertaining and even comedic at times! Tour was well organized and covered a lot everyday. I believe everyone in our group was fulfilled and tired at the end of the day. All of the hotels (except in downtown Osaka...Hotel Eselreine...room was too small for three people!) were excellent. Only disappointment but due to weather was not being able to see Mt. Fuji.

The itinerary was packed with diverse activities, ensuring there was something for everyone. Our tour guide was phenomenal—knowledgeable, entertaining, and super friendly. The bus driver was also really nice and made sure our travels were comfortable. Even before the trip, the staff was incredibly helpful and quick to address any questions or concerns I had.

I appreciate our planner Kiyoshi's patience with our specific requests on our trip. Kiyoshi was prompt to reply to my emails every time, and there were bookings that we could not have done without Kiyoshi's assistance. The tour that AJT arranged for us was very good. In spite of a less than ideal weather, our tour guide Joyce did not disappoint, she was able to make the tour just as interesting. The activities and services that AJT provided were as planned and detailed instructions were also provided. I would recommend AJT services to my friends and family. Thank you for a great trip!

This tour was perfect. There was a variety of well chosen sights to see all over Japan. It was a fabulous introduction to Japanese foods as each meal was a little different in preparation. We especially loved the gardens and were fortunate to have Cherry Blossoms in full bloom. The accommodations were all good. The driver, Yoshinobu Takahashi, was very skilled and pleasant. The tour guide, Kim, was exceptional. She was very organized, gave us so much good information on the Japanese culture and some how managed to keep track of all of us even in crowds and riding trains.

I really enjoyed my 10 day Japan tour with AJT. It was fast paced, but you got to see so much and you were busy all day. Our guides Kim and Barbara were fantastic. They were personable, they made sure we all got to where we needed to be, and we all were kept on schedule and they made sure we were all taken care of before they ended each day. Barbara went the extra mile and made large cards with facts about each location were about to see and general facts about Japanese culture which was interesting to learn about. Great personalities and interactions. Its exhausting stuff, but was sad when it ended.

We also connected in a positive way with the Taiko drum and Ikebana activities. Our only request would be to have a less rigorous schedule. We would be happy to see fewer items and have two to three nights stays.

My wife and I had a wonderful time during our 10-day Japan trip and would highly recommend All Japan Tours. Our tour guide Miharu made sure everything and everyone was taken care of. We learned many things about Japanese history, culture and customs. Beside historical and cultural information during bus rides, Miharu would entertain us with funny stories . We had so much fun and laughter listening about "Cheese Cake", "Fuji Mountains", "Sumo wrestlers' helpers" etc.. The Japanese food was delicious, Cherry blossom beautiful, Onsen relaxing, People very polite and welcoming. One little disappointment was bad weather during Mt. Fuji trip, so we didn't get to see it. But it gives us another reason to come back. ???????? Second portion of the trip was 5 days in South Korea. It was a nice historical and cultural trip, showcasing Andong Hahoe Village, Bulguksa & Seokkuram Grotto. James, our tour guide, kept us moving with a very busy itinerary. The DMZ, Third tunnel and Dora Observatory trip was like going to another country with military checkpoints. Accommodations and food that was included was good.

I think we all came away feeling like we got exactly what we hoped for! The places we went were amazing - I was especially surprised by how much of the ART I enjoyed - spectacular. We really felt Kimi was extremely knowledgeable on all of the places and things we saw and that she genuinely cared about our experience. The hotels were wonderful. Favorites were the ryokan and the Hotel Royal Classic in Osaka. We probably could've spent an entire day at the sword museum (if you're into that - so much to learn) and Bizen Village (buying pottery! - we ran out of time there) The kimono exhibit, the architectural walk, the Ohara museum, the ChiChu! (another favorite!)...and on and on. Each day, we would say well they can't top this and the next day, even better!

My sister and I had a wonderful time on our tour. The gardens were stunningly beautiful and the cultural activities were delightful. Two highlights were the Bizen Osafune Sword Museum, with our learned and entertaining English guide who was a metal archeologist, and Hasshu-an with Grand Masters leading us in a tea ceremony and flower arranging. Other favorites were the Chichu Museum and Hakone Open Air Museum. Of course, we enjoyed the magnificent cherry blossoms nearly everywhere. Every day held special treats, many that we would never have found on our own. Our guide Kimi was always in good humor and kept us moving with a very busy itinerary, adapting seamlessly when site closures or other unforeseen circumstances dictated. The 12-person group was a perfect size for us and full of the loveliest people. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see many parts of Japan, not just the usual city sites.

Ms. Chanthalay Boutchaleune

I enjoy all the places we went but wish I got more time at certain places like the Nakano Broadway, Akihabara, Tsukiji Outer Market, Arashiyama and Shinsaibashi. Maybe add a free day in each city so that as a tourist can experience each city more. All the hotels that we stay at was very nice and the food that was included was also good. Highly recommend because if you were to visit Japan on your own I don't think you will get to do all the thing that the tour offer in that amount of days of the visit but please note you are always on a go and can't really do anything outside of the tour schedule until the tour day is over and you can go out on your own. Our tour guild Jackie and Barbara was wonderful. My overall experience I would rate an 8.5. The group was amazing I got to meet some awesome peoples. Hope you guys are doing well :)

This tour was wonderful. First of all, my son and I booked this vacation at the last minute. Our interactions with the agents via phone and email were always professional and kind. They made accommodations for our arrival at a different airport and even helped us with our travel plans after the tour ended. Billy, our tour guide, was absolutely amazing. He's funny and very knowledgeable. He made sure we understood the customs and history at each location that we visited. He even helped us buy Shinkansen tickets for our trip back to Tokyo because the employee didn't speak English. The tour was jam-packed with so many places to visit and each place was wonderful. The sushi making class was so much fun. The tour bus was comfortable and very clean and the hotels were very nice, especially the one in Ikebukuro. Our bus driver was also great. We always felt safe throughout the entire trip. I highly recommend All Japan Tours. Can't wait for our next trip!

Mr. & Mrs. Masoud

Let me just say that before the trip I had my reservation about a place no one I know personally has gone to. I had no reference to turn to other than google and social media. I was stressing about the language, customs, money, etc. AJT sent some info on this but it wasn’t until my husband and I met our driver that my worries disappeared. The driver, both guides, hotel staff, and literally anyone we interacted with was so nice and willing to teach or help us with what we needed even if there was a language barrier. AJT was also just as amazing when it came to the planning and execution. Everything turned out as planned. Everyone arrived on time and the directions were as described. As background we chose to do a private guide for most of the days and use public transportation. It was so nice to not have to worry about how to get to the hotel from the airport and vice versa or figure out what to do in each city thanks to AJT. Our guides (Ken and Hiro) were also a big factor to why we had such a good time. They were so amazing to us and we learned a lot. We had our itinerary set but within the areas we were at they directed us towards things we might like based on our convos and getting to know us. If you’re planning on going to Tokyo ask for Mr. Ken and if you’re in the Osaka area ask for Mr. Fukui aka Hiro. As for the public transportation do not be scared Japan is super advanced when it comes to their transportation system and google maps is very detailed when it comes to the trains you need to take. Our guides helped us navigate the train system the first day we met them so that when we had our free days we could maximize our day rather than struggle and waste time trying to understand it. The hotels were also amazing. I did change one of the hotels during the planning stage of the trip just because I wanted a more upscale looking hotel and im glad I did because we ended up loving it and the other hotel was recommended by AJT was also really great. But be warned do NOT expect a lot of square footage its the norm but as long as you know to expect that you can adapt. I knew that before the trip but we made it work and we brought a lot of luggages so it is possible. We loved this trip so much we are planning to go again and explore other areas of Japan in the near future.

The selection of lunch and dinner included in this tour were excellent. The Japanese meals served were authentic and tasty. The airport greeting and transfer were convenient.

Our private tour was great, thanks to our expert guide, Kenji Sawada. He listened to us, catered to our needs, adapted to our requests, and gave wonderful recommendations. He also took amazing photos of us given his background as a photographer. He was intuitive, friendly and great energy that he matched to ours.

It was a great variety of sites and it is really hard to choose a favorite. We will definitely be doing another tour!

This tour was everything we expected an more. Although expensive, the tour is a great value because All Japan Tours organized transportation and activities for eight days what would have taken twice as long if we had organized and planned on our own. We especially liked having the same very knowledgeable tour guide for the entire trip. AJT removed the stress of our first visit to Japan so we could fully enjoy our experience.

Tour guides, drivers, trains, and hotels were punctual, well-staffed, and very professional. We appreciate that AJT created a personalized tour for us based on my son's special interests in Samurai, Ninjas, and Anime - while also including my interests in seeing the fall foliage, culture, gardens, and an overnight sty at a ryokan. We learned so much about Japan from this tour!

We thoroughly enjoyed touring with Miharu and Barbara! They both did an outstanding excellent job taking care of us, arranging visits to many interesting sites, explaining the Japanese culture, introducing regional Japanese foods and providing a wonderful fun experience that we will always remember. The very well done descriptive placards/slides really helped us remember details of Japanese history and interesting facts of the sights. The accommodations were all excellent. The hotel spas and courteous amenities (toothbrushes, shavers, etc.) were unexpected but appreciated. The hotel breakfasts were very good and we had no problems finding foods to our liking...some Japanese treats and some western foods. We are accustomed to softer bed mattresses but sufficiently coped as part of the travel experience. The bus transportation in well maintained vehicles was comfortable and the professional drivers did an outstanding job keeping us safe on the roads. Rest stops were timed perfectly so everyone was comfortable especially during the longer rides. The tour description was perfect so we knew what to expect. The broad range of sites from temples, shrines, markets, a castle, gardens, and views of the terrain thru the mountains kept the pace surprising and exciting. Your customer support was very helpful arranging our preferred cooked not raw dishes, informative and was always responsive to our needs. We appreciate that you answered all our many questions during the tour and for the pictures you sent along too. Thank you very much!

The group of 6 in Korea worked really well. Big shout- out to Brian (the guide) and Mr Moon (the driver) who worked as a great team even though Brian told us they had not met before. The group of 34 in Japan was obviously a little less straightforward to coordinate and our guide was not quite as good, but we had been spoiled by Brian and there were no problems. The participants were all very good sports and there were no issues with lateness or prima donna behaviour. The hotel rooms were a good standard everywhere. We were a bit disappointed by the breakfasts in Korea.

Mrs. Rachel Campbell

I am an inexperienced and nervous traveler. I am very glad we chose to book with All Japan Tours, because it made our vacation enjoyable and stress-free. We got to experience a wide range of sites-- natural beauty, temples and shrines, and local markets. We booked extra "personal" days before and after the tour, and when they sent us our tour guide packet it included specific directions for how we could get between the airport and the hotel, down to which train lines to take to which stops. This helped us navigate the trains without issue. AJT is very helpful and flexible! Joyce was an amazing tour guide! She taught us a lot of cultural and historical information, which helped us better understand the sites. She was flexible and smart- - she would tweak our schedule order to avoid being stuck in city traffic, which let us maximize our time at the sites so that we missed nothing. Couldn't ask for a more upbeat or helpful guide.

Mr. Luis Segarra

We had such a great time. The tour was great. Joyce our guide was great. And our bus driver was great. Japan was our first international trip and our 25th anniversary and we couldn’t be happier. We saw so many good things in a short time and we could not have done that without AJT. It’s hard to pick our favorite activities as we loved all of them and can’t imagine which we would cut if we had to. When I saw the green tea ceremony and the sushi making, I didn’t think I would like either and honestly, they sounded like time fillers, but having done them I can say we really enjoyed both. They were fun and interesting and we are thankful to have done them. We love Joyce. She did a great job keeping us organized and keeping us informed, but she was also very kind and helpful. I believe we would have said these things either way, but we did have a personal situation that she volunteered to resolve for us. In short, my wife left her phone in a taxi before the tour began and Joyce was able to get the phone recovered for us. She didn’t have to do that and we didn’t ask her to. We were asking her for nearby electronic stores that sold unlocked phones and she asked us why and we explained the situation. She called the taxi. No phone. She messaged the company. They message back. No phone. They will investigate further. Next day they call Joyce. They have the phone. She arranges to have the phone shipped to the Tokyo Metropolitan Hotel where we would arrive in a couple days. Upon arriving at that hotel, the concierge has the phone on top of their desk, and they give us the phone and we pay for the shipping in cash. It will be impossible for us not to give Joyce a 10/10 after taking care of that for us. But also, she did do a very good job on the tour.

Really enjoyed the ryokan experience with magnificant room view, traditional Kaiseki, sushi making experience, Shiroyama village, meeting the Maiko, bullet train and Japanese Alps. Very impressed with our driver, aka Bamboo Boy, particulary driving through so many mountains. Highly recommend!

Thanks to her ingenuity we managed to still do mt fuji, ropeway, bullet train after all reopen from the typhoon. Thanks again Joyce, you are awesome! I was glad we opted to fly into Haneda and stay in downtown Tokyo instead of airport hotel first night giving us two nights to experience city. All hotels were beautiful and most were convenient to go back out at night on our own except Kansai airport where there were no open restaurants and had to eat in the airport. Would have enjoyed more time in Osaka. We loved the excitement of Dontonbori area and wished we had a night there. Maybe next time! All and all a trip to remember.

Everything about this tour company is fantastic. I had so many questions and the booking staff in California patiently answered all of my questions. When the tour started, our guide, “Billy-San” was equally amazing. He knew history, he knew lore, and he knew how to explain the culture through stories that really left you with an understanding of the good and the bad. His knowledge of food and its importance to each region would have set any true foodie into envy. The onsen was fun and all of the hotels were chosen well to represent their region. Kyoto’s Castle Hotel with the water garden in the center was something right out of a movie or anime. The Ninja house was a huge hit with all my nieces and nephews. My favorite was the “Fox Shrine” with all of the Tori gates and Osaka Castle.

Kiyoshi Katsume was very patient and accommodating to all of our requests as we worked to find a good balance between tour activities and cost. The accommodations were all wonderful. We especially enjoyed the ryokan Aura Tachibana in Hakone, with its beautiful outdoor onsen. Our tour guide Hiro Fukui in Kyoto was so friendly, and so generous with his time and knowledge. He also offered help in the event our travel plans were potentially affected by an incoming typhoon. Our tour guide Mr. Nooga for the Mt. Fuji climb was invaluable - we wouldn’t have made it to the summit without him. Although we chose to explore and navigate to Tokyo on our own, Mr. Katsume was so helpful in explaining which trains to take, how to get to our accommodations, and also where to buy tickets for a baseball game. AJT also gave us excellent advice regarding travel during the busy obon season. We are so thankful for all the arrangements, information, and advice provided by AJT. We had a wonderful balance of guided tours and time and confidence to travel on our own. Thank you!

Kurata was an amazing tour guide!! He was extensively knowledgeable, personable, and clearly cared not just about his job, but the guests on his tour as well. I've already recommended AJT to a few friends looking to travel to Japan in the next year or so, and encouraged them to ask for Kurata if possible, because all of his knowledge and passion for the really cool small details of the cities and culture was just so impressive. Our driver was also very friendly, skilled, and accommodating of all of us guests. Really thoroughly enjoyed all of it!

My family's experience touring Japan with All Japan Tours absolutely exceeded our extremely high expectations, and it culminated into a family trip of a lifetime. We have visited over 30 countries across the globe, and yet this experience has undoubtedly topped them all. Beyond the amazing temples, shrines, and sites that we visited across the country, this tour was able to successfully allow us to experience and understand the people of Japan's incredible culture and kindness so much so that it was the first country that we ever visited where we would seriously consider eventually moving to, which is quite an endorsement from a patriotic American. Joseph, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, caring, and exceptionally dedicated to ensuring that everyone on the tour had a memorable and enjoyable journey. Before arriving for the tour, I was a little nervous about what to expect from the accommodations; however, those worries quickly melted away after we arrived. Every resort that we stayed in was stunning, and all had a top notch level of service, beautiful rooms and accommodations, and great locations with many notable sites within walking distance. Overall, this trip has had a profound impact on our family, and we all cannot wait to come back to Japan!

We had a wonderful time visiting Tokyo, Takayama, Shirakawa-go, Kanazawa and Kyoto. Kiyoshi did a fantastic job helping us narrow the itinerary for each destination. We had many questions and Kiyoshi always responded quickly and provided enough details for us to make comfortable decisions regarding our tours. Kiyoshi’s efforts to accommodate the increase in our group size from 6 to 10 on relatively short notice was exceptional. All of our tour guides in Japan (Mariko, Ayumi, Fujita and Yoshiko) were extremely professional, knowledgeable, energetic and personable. They took time to plan our days to ensure we have the maximum experience. We really appreciated all the tour guides were able to bring us to specific itinerary locations with few foot traffic for great photo opportunities. One of our favorite highlight was staying at the ryokan in Takayama and we would not have considered this if we were to plan our own trip. The hotels were centrally located and close to the train stations for us to explore each city at night. Kiyoshi also provided us with Japan's local tour contact information which we used when there was a slight traffic delay (10 minutes) on our transfer to the airport. We will definitely use AJT for future trips to Japan and would highly recommend AJT to others.

It had a perfect balance of historic sites such temples, shrines, castles, etc. with modern opportunities like Shibuya crossing and Tsukiji fish market. I really loved the sushi making class, the geisha tea ceremony and the wagyu beef restaurant! The food was amazing and very varied--even my picky 12 year old had food he could enjoy. The hotels were very nice. I just can't say enough about this wonderful tour!

Mr. Guzman

The otaku tour with Barbara was amazing from beginning to end. I had been traveling with my girlfriend for a couple days before the tour started to solo tour but once we started the tour everything was made easy and we were pretty much there to bask in the trip and enjoy our time exploring Japan. Our group was small so it felt more intimate than the 30+ tour groups we would see at some places so it was very nice. We were accommodated in any way we could think of. Meals throughout the day, time to rest at various places (you will be walking), time to shop, help navigating public transit, help checking in and out of hotels, recommendations of places to go or things to eat, how to navigate Japan with any plans you have after the tour, and so much insightful information on culture, sites, etc. I cannot thank Barbara (our guide) for the amazing experience and her patience and kindness throughout the trip even helping us book dressing up in kimonos in Kyoto and taking pictures. The tour and Barbara gave me the confidence to plan my solo trip in 2024 to Japan and I hope booking this tour with AJT helps people have an amazing first experience in Japan. Thanks again Barbara!

The tour guide "Steve" and the bus driver (Morimoto I think) were amazing! It was my sons Senior trip/Bday trip and I was our first time in Japan. Steve surprised my son with a gift on his birthday and led the bus to sing Happy Birthday to him. I asked him about getting a cake and he suggested a person in Kyoto who made the BEST birthday cake we have ever eaten. It has fresh fruit and whipped icing. The trip was AMAZING we saw too many different Anime hot spots, temples, gardens and historical sites. Steve would give us history lessons on our way to each site. We learned too much about Japan through his discussions and the places we visited! He surprised us with movies, during the tour, that related to places and the culture in Japan. The hotels were upscale and we loved the buffet options for breakfast each day. The group we were placed with was diverse. We all became like family. We all looked out for each other and Steve always made such to give us times and locations to meet when it was time to leave. No one ever got lost. Best experience ever! I will definitely be back for another tour during the Cherry Blossom season. I would recommend this tour and tour guide to anyone who wants to visit Japan!

Spectacular Tour! Spectacular Time! With AJT we experienced the best Japan has to offer regarding in- depth insight into Japan’s historical and cultural lifestyle, while relishing many of the regional and traditional cuisines along the way. AJT advanced a written emailed itinerary before our arrival to Japan so we were able to research the regions and selected sites in advance, allowing us to read up on the history and geography beforehand. Once there, we had a specific plan for every day, and followed our itinerary exactly. Our tour guide 'Kim Kida' was fantastic and amazing. She timed everything so precisely that we were able to enjoy each days anticipated events, without haste. Kim is so knowledgeable, a genuine professional. She presented detailed information regarding every site we visited, focusing on historical and regional facts. The sushi making and tea ceremony were fascinating and provided us a unique 'cultural' opportunity, we were so happy to participate in. Also, we must praise our wonderful, courteous and skillful Charter Bus Driver, Kamata! With his careful consideration of the foreseen traffic and his expertise driving ability, we felt safe and assured we would always arrive at our destination. These 10 days spent under the direction of an AJT, is a time that will reside in our fondest memories, and we look forward to a time we will certainly return.

We enjoyed our tour very much. It offered a quick and busy sampling of many beautiful and interesting scenic, cultural and moving (Hiroshima) experiences. My husband (age 75) and I took our 12 year old Granddaughter who has autism with us for this tour- and we found that every day offered something of interest for each of us. Our granddaughter has an interest in Anime, and this is something we know very little about – so the tour was great in providing a small sample for us, while also offering an overview of many of the scenic and cultural aspects of Japan as well. Our guide Kim-san was an absolute delight! Kim-san was incredibly caring and knowledgeable. Her language skills are admirable and her wit and charm provided for many shared laughs. Kim-san was very organized, but she also provided for soothing comfort and calm when a member of our group fell ill, and also when our Granddaughter had a bit of a tough day. We would highly recommend Kim-san as a guide for anyone interested in taking a tour within Japan. The tour covers a great deal of the countryside as well as stops in the larger cities. Our diver, Kamata-san was excellent. His driving skills were exemplary as he used his skills to safely get us as close as possible to our many stops of interest, even with tiny winding roads and/or heavy traffic and tight parking spots. Although my husband and I greatly enjoy traveling on our own, this was our first experience with a group tour and it was a wonderful surprise as it truly exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend this tour for a quick sampling of some of the highlights of Japan.

The personal touch of the tour guide, Kurata-san, and his detailed explanation with careful preparation, documents and timely commentaries, added richness to the tour.

I bought this tour as a gift to my daughter who had recently graduated college and had been studying Japanese for several years. We had never traveled overseas, so I was a little nervous about booking the whole trip. We chose the Golden Triangle Spring Tour from May 20-27. The structure of the tour and its all inclusive packaging in addition to the customer service from AJT put us at ease. This trip was INCREDIBLE and we absolutely loved seeing and experiencing all the historical sites, landscapes, festivals, shopping areas, transportation (riding the bullet train was AMAZING!), culture and food! We happened to be touring during the shrine festival which was a bonus. We loved the variety of sites and towns and that the tour included lots of walking to fully appreciate the atmosphere and balance out all of the delicious food we ate every day. We were also impressed by the quality of the hotels/lodging and their amenities. Experiencing a night in a ryokan was also fun. The Japanese people's consistent level of etiquette, customer service, cleanliness, efficiency, energy conservation, and advanced technology no matter where we went was such a refreshing change from what we experience here in the USA. I really could write for days about this trip. The last and probably the most important part of our trip was our tour guide Kenta and our bus driver. Kenta was very attentive to our tour passengers by making sure everyone was safe, chatting with tour members, and updating plans when necessary. He was well versed on all of the sites, Japanese history and even gave us some tidbits about his personal life related to the history or just for entertainment. He stayed consistently energetic but relaxed, pleasant, friendly, helpful and charming throughout the whole week. This job has to be exhausting considering the amount of time spent planning, managing the group and dealing with less than ideal situations at times. We really appreciate his work especially since it takes him and the bus driver's time away from their families. The driving throughout the trip was perfect! We felt 100% relaxed the whole time and admired the drivers driving and parking skills. He's obviously been doing this for some time! I have already and will continue to recommend using AJT for visits to Japan. It was a great experience that we'll never forget!

I loved all the "hand on" activities - doing bonsai, woodcarving, making kamaboko, making tatami, dancing. It was also so special that Miharu was able to have the beautiful Japanese singer fly in just to entertain us on the bus. That was so special and I'm sure something that is not done for all tours.

The activities were all fun and every place we went was expecting us. I especially enjoyed the luxury Hotel Matsushima Taikanso and the beautiful ocean view room. Hotel Family Sado Aikawa was also lovely. it was so nice to have oceanfront rooms. Enough cannot be said about our amazing tour guide Miharu. She was always prompt, well-prepared and organized, and she filled us with information about the history, culture and personal stories with visual material, and all in a very entertaining manner. She kept us laughing throughout the tour. In addition, Miharu was kind, thoughtful, considerate, caring, flexible, joyful and looked out for everyone. She even provided us with delicious snack and water bottles on the bus. She seemed to sense the needs of our tour group and paced our tour accordingly. She truly made the tour to be the very BEST. Our bus driver Mr. Harada was also the best. We felt very confident in his safe and excellent driving. He was also very kind and friendly, always with a smile on his face. He was very accomodating as well, making extra stops to meet rest stop or shopping needs. Miharusan and Haradasan both went out of their way to make this an incredible and memorable tour. Kiyoshi was also very helpful and answered all my trip/airline related questions. We also appreciated all the information of the places we were going to prior to the trip.

Mr. Franklin

Where do I start? In short, this tour was perfect. Everything, from the itinerary to the choice of hotels, to the travel arrangements, to the quality of tour guides, was flawless. We were blown away by how seamless everything was and how easy it was to get around. The attention to detail paid by the AJT staff was world-class and exceeded anything that we have ever experienced. My wife and I are both seasoned luxury tourists (having visited 42 countries together) and this was maybe our best travel experience, ever.

Charms of Hokkaido: Cherry Blossom Tour

Our tour guide was fantastic and very helpful. A true Gem. She went way far and beyond what one might expect from a tour guide. She was also exceptionally knowledgeable abut the area and the history. I am very grateful to her.

Ms. Seligman

Thanks to all of you for a wonderful vacation (even though Mother Nature didn’t cooperate, and we missed most of the cherry blossoms!) The tour was so well planned and organized, with a blend of nature, culture, food, and exploration, that we hardly missed the Sakura. I’ve come to understand that Hokkaido is beautiful at every time of year. In my 20 years as owner of a small tour company, I learned a lot. First: The guide makes or breaks the tour. I hired and worked with dozens and dozens of guides, many of them very talented, but not one of them could hold a candle to Miharu Katsume, who is one of the finest professionals (in any field) that I have ever met. Her attention to detail was remarkable; she never forgot any little item that might please or help a guest, once she found out about it. I’m sure your staff was responsible for accommodating my ridiculous food allergies everywhere we went, but Miharu went above and beyond, by making sure I was eating properly when my back went out. She refused to take ‘no’ for an answer! The fact that it was Golden Week would have been daunting for some guides, but not Miharu. She managed to find an emergency room, took me there, translated, helped me understand how to take my meds, and brought me home. Unbeknownst to me, she arranged for your Tokyo office to overnight a wheelchair, as I wasn’t walking steadily. As it turned out, the meds did their job and I didn’t need the wheelchair…..which was a stroke of luck, since my traveling companion, Madelon Thomson, fell and cracked her kneecap, requiring the use of the wheelchair for the rest of the trip! Madelon needed a lot of attention, and I observed the way Miharu cared for her with respect, kindness, and sometimes firmness. She wanted to make sure that everyone on our tour was able to take part in every activity. She didn’t want us to miss out on anything. As she said herself, “The word ‘no’ is not part of my vocabulary.” I can’t begin to express my respect for her. (If I were still in the tour business, I’d be begging you to clone her!) She brought honor to your company and your country, and joy to her guests. Next, logistics: This tour went off without a hitch, from my perspective as a guest (sorry to hammer away at this, but a great guide fixes logistical glitches without the guests knowing about it. There’s no substitute for experience.) The hotels were comfortable and clean, with very hospitable staffs. The Hilton was the highlight; ringed with patches of snow, it was still winter there, but the interior was warm and gorgeous and the dinner was beautiful, one of the most memorable among many fine meals that we had. The bus driver was outstanding. Through many long hours on the road, he was always smiling and helpful. In closing, I send my appreciation to all of you for everything you did behind the scenes to make this tour such a success. I’m a big fan.

Mrs. Strickland

We had a phenomenal experience with AJT's Japan Spring Highlights tour. The tour guides and bus drivers were exceptionally professional, friendly, and dedicated. The AJT team did a great job handling challenges that could have derailed other tours when a participant sustained a bad injury from a fall and disruptions due to increased security for the G7. This is a very trustworthy, diligent, and caring team. This three-week tour offered an incredible variety of sites (rural vs. urban), museums, meals, and hotels and never felt repetitive. The tour struck a right balance between guided experiences and opportunities to freely explore towns and cities. We really want to go back and spend more time in Japan as we felt that we just scratched the surface of what this amazing country has to offer. We would strongly recommend AJT and this tour to others.

Exceptionally well-organized and well-executed, with some interesting activities (like the drumming demonstration and "class"). Accommodations and meals were good-to- excellent. Rest stops were well-planned and generally excellent and/or interesting. The tour leader (Miharu?) was incredibly organized, energetic, and and hard working, and did everything imaginable to attend to ALL of the needs of ALL of the group.

Packed itinerary which was great and allowed to really experience the real Japan it's culture, food, people and wonde4lrful scenery and nature. Tour guides were fantastic, both Kim and Miharu were extremely knowledgeable and went wellbeyond expectations. Miharu particularly had to act as a carer after one passenger had an accident and had to go to hospital. Kim did a fantastic job on the day we visited Hiroshima, where she had to lead 32 of us on public transport

Wonderful tour. Exceeded all my expectations. Was fortunate enough to see the cherry blossoms blooming everywhere in Hokkaido. Our tour guide in Hokkaido was Miharu and she was lovely. She was very efficient, gave us lots of information and quite a few laughs. Our second tour guide for the last part of the tour was Kim Kito and she was also great. She was very informative and told us quite a number of entertaining stories. When Hiroshima was to be closed due to the G7 Meeting she bought us all breakfast supplies so we could eat on the bullet train to Hiroshima and then managed to get all of us to the Peace Park by public transport before the cut off time. Excellent service and she kept her good humour throughout.

1. Since it was private tour where we identified sites to visit, it was a fantastic trip. I would have added a day or two in each of the major cities (Osaka, Kyoto & Tokyo) to explore on our own to shop and enjoy additional restaurants. 2. Breakfast included daily is a must 3. Would have been nice to have recommendations regarding specialties of each location to include list of restaurant recommendations close to hotel.

I went on my trip in March 2023 and it was AMAZING. I've been planning to go to Japan for over six years and AJT was able to help me accomplish my dream. From the first time I reached out, everyone I spoke to was incredibly kind and full of knowledge. They were also very patient with my overwhelming amount of questions! The reps at the company let me know what I needed to apply for and fill out, along with due dates and timely reminders. I was also able to add on a 4-day Seoul addition with ease. Our guide, Billy, met us at the airport and was literally the most perfect tour guide. (He even assisted me with picking up my mobile wifi at the airport). I highly recommend him for your tours! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the places we were going. You could even ask him questions about places we passed and he would be able to tell you in-depth, despite it not being a part of the tour. I felt very comfortable with him and in extremely capable hands. I could go on and on about Billy, or the places we visited for days, but to sum it up, this trip, this tour is 100% worth it. AJT is incredibly thorough in helping me organize this whole trip, outside of my flights. I cannot wait to go on another tour with them! 100/10, definitely recommend!

Highlights of Korea and Japan: Cherry Blossom Tour

4/5/2023 - 4/15/2023 / 2023-04-05   

Ms. Golden

I cannot say enough good things about this tour! We definitely got our money's worth on this tour, and I am very happy I found AJT in my search for this type of East Asia Cherry Blossom tour. Our Korean guide, Brian, was very knowledgeable about the history of Korea's dynasties and invasions, which shaped the culture, language, and mindset of the Korean people. Our Japan guide, Janice, was very thoughtful, personable, and knowledgeable about the culture of Japan and significance of certain sites, and she tried to find spots where we still could see cherry blossom trees in bloom, since this year the cherry blossoms bloomed two weeks early and were mostly past their prime, because she did not want us to be disappointed. They both kept us informed about changes in our itinerary due to weather or other causes, and they made adjustments in the order of site visits so that we were able to see everything that was promised in the AJT tour brochure and itinerary. They listened to our feedback and gave suggestions on how to maximize our free time in each tour destination in both countries. On a personal note, both guides continued to check in about my tree nut food allergy and to make sure that my placement at each table had a marker so that the restaurant servers knew they should be careful and make sure I received a special dish prepared just for me. In particular, Brian helped me get treatment at the Seoul ER after I had an asthma attack and I needed a stronger inhaler prescription. That kind of personal touch and one on one service is priceless for someone who has serious medical conditions. Finally, I really appreciate AJT's efforts in getting two tickets to the Studio Ghibli museum for our preferred date, after the tour was over. I know it wasn't easy, but it was worth the trip and effort. Thank you!

We had high expectations for the tour but it exceeded our expectations in every way. The accommodations were superb and the food was fantastic. Truly a once in a life time trip for us to see essentially all of Japan in 3 weeks. My Japanese relatives were so impressed with the itinerary and many said we have seen more than they have of Japan in their whole lives. Thank you so much. Also thank you for Kim Kida, our guide. She was more than amazing....a true expert guide who did so much more than necessary to make everyone's experience wonderful.

The good part of the tour is that it covered a lot of places. However, the tour guide, Barbara, had a problem with the English language and would stand on the bus with a cardboard printouts and speak behind them with her mask on. Anyone more than 3 rows behind could not see anything or understand what she was saying. Finally, 3 days before the tour ended, AJT put 6 of us on a different bus with an English speaking tour guide. Never again!!!!!

Ms. Fiore

I chose this tour as it aligned with the places I was interested to visit. Unfortunately, though, there were many factors that contributed to spoiling this 'costly' holiday. The leading tour guide Barbara was very inexperienced and her English was so poor that It was almost impossible to understand her. Both Barbara and the other tour guides that eventually took over did not guide us to any of the sites, just gave us some information (Barbara's were absolutely indecipherable) while on the bus, but left us to self-guide at every site. Despite communicating our concern and disappointment to the main office by email, no satisfactory solution was put in place. I would definitely not recommend this company.

Ms. Carpenter

Me ha ru was great at information. I learned a ton even after doing homework in advance. Japan is lovely. What needs fixed on this tour is timing (multiple over 12 hour days was insanity and even with that we lost a few items off the itinerary because people were DONE), accurate information about timing (stops were often underestimated, and our group was not particularly slow), and the included food was ... Not good (I'm not particularly a fan of japanese but why was there no ramen meal, and multiple meals involving cold rice, and food, including raw food, that was pre plated for Lord knows how long before we got there). People who already liked Japanese food were likewise unimpressed). If those things were fixed this would've been amazing, as it was it was good. Group consensus was that the imperial palace parking lot, the textile overpriced factory and the idea of going up into one of the castles could have been axed. Also, given the weather going up only to station 4 on Mt Fuji was too expensive timewise, a stop below when the mountain was out would've been preferable.

Had a wonderful time! Ms. Katsume Miharu was excellent as our tour guide. The same for our driver, we were transported safely and timely to our sites/destinations. Hotels/accommodations were well chosen. Learned a lot about Japan and its culture. Most likely justify a return trip!

There was never a wasted moment! Our guide (Hiroko) was extremely knowledgeable of the areas and fun to hang around with - I wish it could have lasted longer! I definitely feel that I got more than I paid for - so many things I got to experience that would never have been had it not been for Hiroko!

This was a brilliant tour. Miharu, our guide was super. She was well prepared, knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. It was a full on tour and a fair bit of walking and steps so not ideal for those with a disability. We got to see an awful lot and it was a beautiful time of the year to see Japan in the snow. Highly recommended!!

Mr. Baldwin

We wanted to travel to Japan for our honeymoon and were originally only looking into guided tours due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions. We ended up choosing All Japan Tours even after these restrictions were lifted, and couldn't be happier that we did! The convenience of having transportation, hotels, and activities planned out and booked for us was worth the price of the tour, but what really gave this tour its value was our guide, Miharu. She was so friendly and knowledgeable. We loved her sense of humor and her stories helped us to appreciate the richness of Japanese history and culture. She will sometimes joke about her English not being the best, but we found her to be very witty, intelligent, and easy to understand. Some of our favorite things we did include seeing the snow monkeys, meeting a maiko, and exploring the smaller towns like Takayama and Kurashiki. We wished we could have spent more time in some places, but never felt rushed. The bus drivers were also friendly and professional. Of note, there is a lot of walking on this tour that might not be suitable for some travelers. In the case of some of the shrines, like Fushimi Inari and Kotohira-gu, there are many steps to climb, but there is always the option to shop or explore on your own while the rest of the group hikes up. At the ryokan (traditional inn) you will sleep on a futon on the floor. We loved it, but can see how some people might not prefer this. There is also a lot of traditional Japanese food included on the tour, some of which might not be appealing to Westerners. We didn't like everything we ate, but we were happy to get to try it and never went hungry. All Japan Tours went out of their way to accommodate my wife's rare seaweed allergy as well, which really impressed us. Just let them know ahead of time if you have any limitations and they are sure to find a way to help. Overall, we would recommend Miharu and All Japan Tours to anyone interested in a thorough Japan experience. We had a great time and learned a lot. We hope to visit Hokkaido next time!

Trip to Japan was our long waited journey since our last booking for Olympic games was cancelled. With AJT during strict provisions in entering Japan since pandemic, were all made possible. Our family had the most wonderful experience throughout the whole 10 days in Japan. We are very glad of AJT's service. From doing our itinerary, promptly replying my mails and questions, the accomodation, sightseeing, transport service from airport to hotel and back. Our patient and hospitable tour guide Ms. Barbara Chin, We might lost from metro without you. We are happy with your company. Absolutely amazing to see Japan and the helpful warm people. Our trip was all worth it! Thank you for organizing everything smoothly and clearly this trip. From: Mrs. Koskinen Tavallisesti kun matkustamme, kuljemme omatoimisella matkalla, siis ostaen lennot ja hotellit itse. Japanin matkan hinta tuntui ennen matkaa kalliilta. Mutta matkan aikana huomasimme, että ohjelma ja järjestelyt olivat huolellisesti suunnitellut. Liikkuminen Tokion metroissa, matka tulivuorelle olisi ollut omatoimimatkalla hyvin hankala toteuttaa. Oppaan palvelut olivat täsmällisiä ja hyvin hoidettuja. Kuljetukset lentokentältä ja lentokentälle oli hyvin hoidettuja. Jälkeenpäin ajatellen , matkan hinta oli ollut kohtuullinen ja olemme tyytyväisiä saamaamme palveluun. Message from: Mr. Kalevi Koskinen

Kiyoshi-san: It does not seem like this person sleeps. He is always so prompt in responding to our never ending questions, even when we send e-mails late at night. We also recognize that some of our questions are hard to answer, because Japan had not opened itself to visitors when we made our reservations with AJT, but Kiyoshi-san always takes time and effort to reply to every single one of our question to the best of his ability. When we had to change our itinerary (because Japan finally opened-up), Kiyoshi-san was very prompt in sending us our revised itinerary once we asked for it - we really appreciate this. Kiyoshi-san, thank you for making this trip for us possible. We would not have gone through with this trip, but for your speedy and detailed responses. We also want to thank you for your patience and understanding (as we were hedging on Japan opening up, and also our own work commitment) as we took some time to finally make payment. Kiyoko-san: We are extremely fortunate to have met a tour guide like Kiyoko-san. A very friendly, warm, witty and patient tour guide. Always going the extra mile for us behind the scenes - this is something we really appreciate. All 5 of us are extremely happy with your services. and we are so grateful and lucky to have a tour guide like you. Kiyoko-san, if you are reading this, we want to let you know that we have spread your good- name to our close contacts - anyone who is keen on doing the Nakasendo Trail (or any other tours / hike in Japan), your name is number 1 on the list. You may not see us so soon, but you will likely meet some of our other friends soon. Thank you Kiyoko-san! When you come to Singapore, please remember to contact us and we will bring you out for a nice meal. Thank you AJT for making this trip possible for us.

We would highly recommend working with Japan Tours.

Our guides were very helpful in steering us around the country and squeezing in many glorious sights every day. A highlight was the ryokan with the stellar view of Mt. Fuji out our window, the various fun neighborhoods of Tokyo, Todai-ji in Kamakura and the beautiful shrines and gardens of Kyoto.

Mr. Pettus

The Van was a really beneficial thing to have. We did not have to think and figure out train schedules when we had the van. Riding trains is fun, but requires more thought and planning and there is also some time pressure. With the van, there is none of that. We appreciated the excellent English-speaking ability of all the guides. That made life so much easier. The best part was that many of them were so willing to be so helpful. Yuki helped us ship a box back to the USA at the post office. It was really hard and took a long time. She also helped us use a takuhaibin service for the first time which also took extra time and effort. The guides and drivers never complained when we went over the 8 hour time period. They were also willing to do what we wanted as long as it was reasonable. We all felt so extremely blessed by the generosity and hospitality of the japanese culture and people. Our guides and drivers were the best example of that as it felt like they would do anything they could to help us have the best trip possible.

An absolutely stunning itinerary that shows so much of Japan and its culture. My wife and I could not have asked for a better first tour in this country! Every day was filled beautiful scenery and locations. I wish I could go on this tour for the first time again, it was truly magical. Our guide, Miharu, was the absolute best. During the drives between locations, she shared many stories and background information about culture and lifestyle. Some of the stories were so funny! If you're looking for a tour out of the big cities and more relaxed, this is the one for you. Be prepared for a lot of walking, but it is so worth it!

I've been to Japan a couple of times but this itinerary covers a lot of places that a typical visitor would not visit given the locations and lack of transportation to the areas. The overall tour was great. Miharu, our tour guide, and Izawa, our driver, were wonderful. Miharu was very prepared, punctual, and informative. The both really went above and beyond to guide us each step of the way and did more than what most tour guides I've met would have done. For instance, taking the group out to grab dinner or walking in the city after dinner. Making an effort for us to be on schedule but also changing itineraries around to make the most of our scenic views, such as the sunset, was absolutely amazing. That takes an export guide to plan. The places on the itinerary was fantastic. I love all the shrines, gardens, and unique modern twist of the museums. The food was delicious too, there was a lot to eat.

I wanted to get a mix of both the major sites and the more out of the way, local areas and this itinerary delivered well on that. The overall itinerary and mix of attractions and activities was quite good. We felt we got a LOT our of our two weeks there. The areas in the second half of the tour (which is available as it's own one as the Samurai, Gardens, & Arts tour) would have been difficult or time consuming to reach and navigate as an individual tourist. The ryokan were visited during the second week were wonderful, with Kaiseki dinners that highlighted local fare and enjoyable onsen. Our guide, Miharu, was helpful throughout our tour, helping us know where to find items we were looking for and helping our group arrange travel and find dinner options on free nights, and funny.

It was a great trip - educational, fun, great guides and drivers! Although we understand that the goal is to experience Japan as the Japanese do, we would have preferred fewer Japanese dinners, and NOT sleeping in an onsan on the floor. It was very hard for a 72 year old to get off the floor. Please provide a step stool on all buses and vans. Many older folks needs the extra lift. Also a few more instances where we could have had 2 or 3 nights in the same hotel

We were really pleased with the various elements of the itinerary: museum, Zen temple food, nature, art shopping (which we asked for whilst after arriving in Japan), samurai experience, trip to Nara from Kyoto. It was great been shown around by our guides, not only for there knowledge but also we dind't have to worry about how to get around, especially in Tokyo.

My chlidren really enjoyed the trip and tour as well, it was their first visit to Japan, they had a blast. We were able to see so much in the amount of time we had. We decided to arrive before the tour so we could visit Tokyo Disneyland which was not included in the tour. Once in Japan the company was able to make arrangements for us to visit Tokyo Disneyland. Once again thank you so much All Japan Tours for a wonderful vacation.

We absolutely loved our first trip to Japan and we owe a lot of that to Miharu, our tour guide. She did everything she could to make sure that everyone was comfortable and having a great time. Not just a good time but a great time. We were able to leave everything in her, Mr. Nakayama, and AJT's hands and just enjoy our vacation. It was absolutely wonderful and my entire family had a very wonderful, memorable time. My only complaint is that there's not enough time to do everything we would have liked but there's just so much to do in Japan. We would have loved to had time to shop and explore but we had a very full itinerary and we got to see so much in a short amount of time. We loved our tour so much and we will be back to visit Japan again very soon.

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.

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!

Everything about travelling with All Japan Tours was excellent! Our guides Kimi-san and Mariko-san were so accommodating, knowledgeable, and fun! They answered all our questions about locations, culture and everyday life, and educated us on the history and significance of what we were experiencing every day. We were in Tokyo for 8 days and they made sure we got the absolute most out of every day we were there! From showing us little out of the way shops, to taking us to Odaiba, they were so kind, professional, and wonderful to spend our time with. And we can't forget to mention our contact and tour organizer, Kiyoshi-san! Kiyoshi-san was so amazing in organizing our days, including things that we might enjoy and that we would never have thought of ourselves! Even when we were down to the wire for getting things ready, Kiyoshi-san was always making sure we had the experience we wanted. This trip was beyond amazing! I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever with going with All Japan Tours! They made our dream a reality and it was spectacular! When we go back, we want to be with these amazing people and company!

Guides were always punctual and uniformly excellent. Upon hearing of our preferences, guides suggested slight deviations from our itinerary which worked very well and we appreciated. Hotel check-in and check-out was seamless. Baggage forwarding was handled without any problems.

This tour was extraordinary! I have been travelling for 40 years, and this now ranks in the top three of my all-time trips. The company must be congratulated for making such an interesting, in-depth exploration of a fascinating country. Our guide MADE this trip extraordinary. I cannot give any higher praise than to her expertise and execution of this tour. Our bus driver was excellent. The bus was always clean. The Japanese people were a pleasure to visit. Wonderful, wonderful experience.

Overall we loved the tour schedule, all the snow and ice festivals, scenic and historic sites, bus transportation, meals, and the many hotel/inn accommodations. Our tour guide (Kim) took good care of our entire group. We had a fun and enjoyable time in Hokkaido.

It was magical, couldn't have wished for a better guide or the snow. The ice and snow festivals were amazing, the snowfalls, the happy and well spoken guide, Kim. She was so lovely and made the tour.

Best of Honshu & Hokkaido: Snow Monkeys & Hokkaido Winter Festival Tour 2020

Alison from New Zealand

I was rather apprehensive to go from New Zealand on my own to join a group in Japan, however I felt confident by the efficiency of your administration that it would be a good choice. I was certainly not disappointed. The tour was very well organised and did exactly what was planned. I was delighted to be able to visit so many sites and have so many wonderful experiences. One of the reasons was our excellent guide, Kim Kido. She was informative, friendly, extremely helpful and had a wonderful sense of humour. She managed the group superbly, enabling us to be on time everywhere without feeling rushed. Our drivers were all superb, and I’m sorry that I did not remember their names. However our last driver’s first name was Takashiro. They were all helpful, polite and did everything they could to make the trip easier with all their baggage handling and excellent driving. The food was wonderful and we were given many different opportunities to experience that.

Loved it. I would recommend this tour to my friends for sure. Really appreciated our Tour guide (Ms Kim) as the best, most professional tour guide I ever have. Loved how she remembered her crew by names and care for us as if that's her family. I would definitely would do AJT again with Kim (e.g. the Hokkaido winter tour)
