Best of Japan with Japanese Alps: Autumn Leaves Tour 2019

Excellent tour. Eveything was very well planned out and allowed me and my brother see so much of Japan. Extremely happy overall. Billy and our bus driver did a superb job! I al looking forward to telling others about this trip and hopefully after a bit of rest I can come to another AJT trip.

Best of Japan with Japanese Alps: Autumn Leaves Tour 2019

10/26/2019-11/5/2019 / November 11   

The tour was more than I expected, seeing all the different cities of Japan, and experiencing the many different "flavors" of each. I especially enjoyed the many attractions that I was able to see and participate in as well as the many dishes that was offered in the many meals that was part of this tour. Our tour guide Miharu kept us entertained with her knowledge of the many cities and attractions that we visited as well as the many stories that was both said and hilarious and our tour driver, My Hirakawa who was the the "bomb" in driving us everywhere.

Best of Japan with Japanese Alps: Autumn Leaves Tour 2019

10/26/2019-11/5/2019 / November 18   

I experienced such a magnificent and memorable tour! There were 11 tour members in our group...so ideal and very comfortable on our tour bus! Our hotel accommodations were the best staying at 4 and 5-star hotels as well as the fabulous meals offered. Katsume Miharu, our tour guide, was the best...very informative and knowledgeable about all the cities we visited. She worked hard and went the extra distance to ensure we were well informed of the attraction for the day. Miharu was such a superb expertise in guiding us on a wonderful and unforgettable journey of Japan from Mt. Fuji to Kobe and back to Osaka. She entertained us during our bus trips making them enjoyable and fun with much laughter and freely sharing her humorous experiences and stories. She was ever so generous in sharing with our tour group the many delicious Japanese confections from the different prefectures we visited. Miharu was also very attentive as to our group's desires, wants, and needs. Scallops and Daiso were mentioned. She and Hirakawa- san, our driver, determined where the scallops could be bought at Tsukiji Open Market and, since our travel schedule permitted, Hirakawa-san made a special stop at a similar 100 yen store enroute and our group was given time to do some shopping. Hirakawa-san, our driver, was terrific, quiet and effective...he is the kindest, polite, and most patient individual...he coped daily with loading and unloading our heavy luggage onto and off the back of the bus...and, most of all, he endured the long and extensive distances he needed to travel and got us to our destinations safely and on schedule daily. The highlight of our tour was the last night for dinner when we were extended an exclusive invite to Sakura Garden in Kobe to experience the taste of Kobe beef... such a delight for our tour group to be given this exquisite opportunity...the Kobe beef was superb and outstanding...so tender - the best beef I've ever eaten...thank you, All Japan Tours, for making this experience possible for our tour group. All Japan Tours, thank you for a beautiful Autumn tour of Japan...mata ne (see you again) when I consider your agency in the future for more of Japan! Arigatou, Sharlynn "Shar" Kiyabu from Hawaii

I have been on many tours with other operators & I must say this has been the best of all, the tour guide was nothing short of excellent, Miharu Katsume was the complete package when it come to tour guides, knowledgeable, entertaining, funny & very helpful. The hotels we stayed at where all above expectations & the food & sights where all excellent, thank you for the great time.

Best of Japan Tour Autumn 2019

10/18/2019-10/27/2019 / November 9   

Wonderful tour. The bus was very comfortable and the 2 bus drivers we had were excellent. Miharu our second tour guide was outstanding. She was informative, very clear on the timelines, directions and instructions for visiting the multitude of sites we stopped at. We couldn't ask for a better guide and feel very fortunate to have had her as ours for the majority of the trip. The sites were wonderful to visit and we really appreciate the flexibility you gave us to go to Disney Sea on our last tour day. Everything went very smoothly and I am sure Miharu went the extra distance to ensure we got our luggage at the last night hotel. We even got a packed breakfast on our way to DisneySea from the Tobu Levant Tokyo Hotel staff. Again all the communication with your AJT office staff was so clear and helpful. Thank you for such a memorable trip.

Best of Japan Tour Autumn 2019

10/13/2019-10/22/2019 / November 21   

This tour suited us completely. We wanted to see some of the country before making a 4 day visit to our hometown's Japanese sister city for an anniversary celebration. We enjoyed it all--good variety of activities. Our guide provided clear instructions and kept us moving on the busy schedule. She was informative about many aspects of Japanese history and culture in a very entertaining way and looked after our needs and comfort. The hotels and included meals were first class. In addition, when our arrival in Japan was delayed by a typhoon, AJT was very helpful with specific instructions that allowed us to catch up with the group two days late, and then provided documentation we needed to file a travel insurance claim.

Best of Japan Tour Autumn 2019 & 6 Day Private Tour in Korea

10/7/2019-10/22/2019 / November 1   

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.

Don & Victorine from Canada


Best of Japan Tour Autumn 2019 & 6 Day Private Tour in Korea

10/7/2019-10/22/2019 / November 4   

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

9/20/2019-9/29/2019 / October 1   

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!

Maria from Seattle


Best of Japan Tour Autumn 2019

9/15/2019-9/24/2019 / October 4   

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.

Everything was excellent and Miharu was an excellent guide. The company was fabulous when we found out our flights were changed due to a typhoon. They worked with us to help us figure out a different hotel and travel plan. Then, when our flights were changed again, they helped us from the airport with getting a new hotel. The customer service was outstanding.

We enjoyed this tour very much, which covered many interesting places not only in big cities of Japan, but also other rather smaller cities. The highlight of the tour was for us our guide Billy-San, who made so much effort in making us feel comfortable. We are quite satisfied about the tour and would recommend it to people who are interested in Japan.

Best of Japan Summer (Reverse) 2019

6/7/2019-6/16/2019 / June 20, 2019   

My husband and grandson traveled with me through Japan this June, beginning with a 4 day independent tour that AJT arranged for us, beginning June 4. We then joined a group tour for the remainder of our time in Japan - June 8 through June 16. All arrangements were superb, with great care given to the places we wanted to visit, and with guides and a driver who were very well-versed in all things Japanese and ensuring comfort and the best use of our time while in Japan. During the independent portion of our tour, we were met by a different guide each day who led us through the highlights of that day's city, and always conferred with us on what was most important for us to experience. The group tour, led by guide extraordinaire Billy, covered an expansive portion of Honshu island, with great care given to unusual and off-the-beaten path sites that were a joy to experience. We were fortunate to see many sides of Japan -- high-volume population city sights, extraordinary shrines and temples, some of the most beautiful castles and gardens, important museums and historical sites, and traveling through Honshu with our comfortable and expertly driven bus that allowed seeing the countryside between tour stops. It was an unforgettable trip!

Thank-you so much for an absolutely wonderful trip! Everything was wonderfully arranged to maximize the sights and experiences. The hotels were excellent. And our guide, Billy, did an amazing job keeping 20+ people on track, while also keeping up a very interesting and helpful commentary during the trip. I will definitely be recommending AJT to anybody planning to travel to Japan!

5/17/2019-5/26/2019 / May 30, 2019   

My husband and I could have not been more pleased with our experience with All Japan Tours! Our tour guide, Miharu-san truly did an exceptional job. You could tell she was passionate about her country, and her eagerness to share that knowledge with her group. She would spend hours every night making sure she was well prepared for the next day, and to make sure everything went smoothly. There was never a wait of any kind. The tour ran like clockwork. The accommodations and food were excellent. My husband and I took the 10 day Best of Japan tour, and pretty much saw everything Japan has to offer. Keep in mind, the tours last all day. There wasn't much down time at the end of the day. If we had to do it again, we would add a few extra days at the end so we could explore on our own. Other than that, it was fantastic. We would also like to give thanks to our bus driver, Hitoshi-san. He is still learning English, but he was so sweet and kind. He took such great care of us. We would highly recommend All Japan Tours to our friends and family!

We absolutely loved this tour, being immersed in the culture, sights and experiences of Japan was wonderful. We can’t thanks our guide Suzuki enough for his genuine care and interest in making sure we got the most out of our tour and sharing his extensive knowledge and experience of his home country with us. It made for a trip of a lifetime. Our driver was also so courteous and caring and made sure he did everything he could to make our tour as safe and comfortable as possible.

Best of Japan (Reverse): Autumn Leaves Tour

11/23/2018 - 12/2/2018 / December 6, 2018   

We had the most amazing trip to Japan thanks to All Japan Tours. We did the Reverse Autumn Tour and the fall colors did not disappoint. Both of our guides, Suzuki san and Billy san were great. They were both very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Both made sure everyone on the tour was accommodated appropriately. For example, once Billy san knew I would need a fork rather than chopsticks he made sure one was provided at every meal without any prompting. Billy san also did a great job of coordinating our visits to the attractions in the best order to ensure we would have ample time to explore. The meals provided via the tour were absolutely amazing. Hotels were great too. I would highly recommend All Japan Tours to anyone. My husband and I are already thinking about planning another tour.

The fall leaves tour was fantastic! Our guide, (Kim Kida) was so knowledgeable about the history of each place we visited. She was so pleasant and patient during our time with her. We had plenty of time to wonder around on our own at each place too. Our driver (Jiro Fukui) was tremendous too. He was so kind and caring. We would definitely request them both in our future trips to Japan.

We were very lucky with the weather all 10 days and our guide, Kim was very nice and have a good knowledge of Japan history. She was very caring person and dependable. We were all blessed with this wonderful trip. The traditional Japanese foods were excellent and enjoyed it very much. I would recommend everyone in the world to visit Japanese traditional beauty places. I like to thank your company for a good plan of the trip and thanks for providing us a good guide.

Best of Japan Tour Autumn

10/14/2018 - 10/23/2018 / October 26, 2018   

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.

Samuel from New Jersey


Best of Japan Tour Autumn

10/14/2018 - 10/23/2018 / October 27, 2018   

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.

Virginia from Arizona


Best of Japan Tour Autumn

10/14/2018 - 10/23/2018 / October 27, 2018   

The tour was well organised and ran according to the itenary. Kim the tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered any questions raised by the group. 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.

Best of Japan Tour Autumn

10/14/2018 - 10/23/2018 / November 19, 2018   

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.

My group of 5 returned from our trip in Japan doing the Best of Japan (reverse) tour on September 21st to the 28th. All Japan Tours not only made vacation in Japan amazing, they have amazing customer service and communication. The tour guides, Kim and Billy, were helpful and knowledgeable about both things on and off the tour. We always had an answer from them about any questions we had. They even helped us with some things off the tour as we stayed an extra 4 days after it ended. My husband and I are already planning to go back to Japan and will 100% be using AJT again. Dont let the price sway you. For what we paid, it was worth it. The hotels were always top notch and the events for each day had us in awe and kept our excitement going. Our driver Tahara was also courteous and amazing.

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

The tour covered a large area of Japan and flowed smoothly. The two cooking lessons (okonomiyake and sushi) were fun and highly enjoyable. Our guide Billy- san was amazing, taking time to answer individual questions in a large group, very knowledgeable and friendly. He would tell us stories on the bus to while away the traveling time, but he also knew when we needed quiet time. Japan is a wonderful country with so much to do - this tour was an excellent introduction to its culture.

Our guide was fantastic (Kim Kida) and her history and story telling skills were wonderful. The tour was not just a visit to temples /shrines and gardens, but a cultural enlightment. Being a vegetarian, I was very appreciative of the care that Kim took to make sure I got great food. Good, safe drivers - Uetake and Takahashi.

Only two things would have made the tour better: 1. A listening device that would allow the guides comments to be heard without having to be right beside her and 2. A larger bus with more luggage storage space. Kida Kim did a wonderful job and has the right personality to make everyone feel comfortable and important.

I recently spoke to an employee in your USA department regarding my husband and my interaction with a tour guide in Japan.She reassured me that this email would be forwarded to your Tokyo office.

I am writing in strong praise and recommendation of your Tour Guide Billy Hayashi. We toured with him October18-28. We landed in Tokyo (Narita) where Billy met us promptly on landing. The next day we proceeded on our trip which included Kyoto,Osaka, Hiroshima, Shikoku, then returning to Osaka for our return to the USA. .

The travel was easy and accommodations excellent. .

My husband is Japanese American, very knowledgable about the culture and history and speaks and understands a moderate amount of Japanese. I went on this trip to fulfill his desire to show me Japan. .

The tour and activities were excellent. My husband listened to other guides in groups nearby ours and told me that Billy provided more information than the others. .

Billy apparently is gifted in his English skills. HIs rapid understanding, response and sense of humor indicated to me that he “thinks in English”. He represents your company in a way that should be recognized and valued! .

My feelings before the tour were that I was going on the tour to please my husband. This was such a rich experience that I now tell my husband “ I want to go back to Japan”,and we hope to! .

Thank you and thank you to Billy for this memorable experience!

BEST OF JAPAN TOUR AUTUMN

10/16/2016 - 10/25/2016 / January 3rd, 2017   

Four members of our family decided on the Japan Tour Autumn 2016. We joined the tour a day late (10/17/16 to 10/25/16) not knowing what to expect. Our experience was one-of-a- lifetime. We are STILL talking about Billy (Masao Hayashi-san). He made the tour unbelievably special. He gifted us with a lifetime of memories of Japan. Most importantly he is a really unique human being. Genuine, kind, caring with great discernment when it comes to people. Something that can't be taught. He shepherds people gently, he somehow makes every person feel special and looked after. He goes out of his way for others. Our driver Uetake-san was an expert driver and expert with directions. There were no delays or turn- arounds the whole trip from Tokyo to Osaka and in-between no matter the windy roads, narrow residential streets, busy traffic.

Everyone on the tour could tell Billy likes what he's doing and loves Japan. He would add personal insight to our daily upcoming stops. He prepared us well on every aspect of our travels (e.g. manners, garbage, restroom stops, which side of the street and escalators to walk/stand on). All of these things contributed to a stress- free tour, enabling us to totally enjoy our fellow tour companions and Japan. Billy's enthusiasm was contagious throughout our travels even though this is his job, and we were aware that he doesn't get home often. In addition to all of the knowledge, appreciation and memories we took away from our trip... we also have new appreciation for Mr. Donut, MOS burgers, Yoshinoya Beef Bowl to name a few, thanks to Billy!

We took a lot of time researching tours in Japan and kept going back to what we found from All Japan Tours - there just wasn't anything that allowed us to see so much in just over a week and for the price that they offered. The Best of Japan Autumn Tour was absolutely fantastic! From being picked up at the airport by our guide to the accommodations, to the attractions, to the food, this trip could not have been better. We consider ourselves VERY lucky to have had Billy-san as our guide! Billy-san cares about his guests, he herds cats like no one else could, he's funny, and he's incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Billy-san was very sensitive to dietary restrictions and allergies and that was very much appreciated! Having a guide like Billy-san definitely made the experience even better than it could have been. While driving between cities, Billy-san passed the time by telling us about the Japanese culture, the Japanese people and the history of the next attraction. That made time go by very quickly and filled in pieces we would not have received had we tried to tour Japan on our own. Billy-san gave us excellent advice as to what to do and where to go at the end of the tour when we were on our way to Tokyo for a few days. The communication with All Japan Tours was fantastic, from start to finish. They were very responsive and guided us toward where to stay on our last night of the tour so that we were just minutes from the train station. They also guided us as to the best mode of transportation to get us to the airport from Shinjuku, even though we were no longer going to be on their tour. We could not be happier with the experience we had with All Japan Tours and would recommend them to anyone looking for a great tour through Japan.

We just returned back from our trip. Everything was absolutely amazing:Itinerary, hotels, people in the group, and most important important, Billy-our tour guide. His knowledge,willingness to answer any question, assistance in dealing with unfamiliar food made our trip better, easier and unforgettable. I also would like to share with you some disappointing aspects of the trip - very short and amateur kimono fashion show and no WI-fi and phone and camera chargers at any seat in the bus.

I wanted to tell you that I was very satisfied with my recent trip to Japan. "Best of Japan Tour (reverse) Cherry Blossom Special March 27-April 5, 2015"
Our tour guide "Billie" was excellent. He was extremely helpful at every step of the way. Our hotel accomodations were great. The food and travel trips met all my needs.
I would recommend you in the future. My AAA agent was not familiar with your company and was not sure she should recommend it but it was the only trip available at the time I could go and it met all my other needs. I think she should feel confident in recommending you in the future.

The tour was wonderful! My husband and I enjoyed our time in Japan immensely and hope to return one day soon, hopefully to see the sakura in full bloom. Kim Kida was an excellent guide - informative, friendly and very helpful in answering our questions. She even went out of her way to show me the Tourist Kimono shop, which I really appreciated (though I loved to wear the kimono, I was so hot! But loving it! ^_^;) The food was wonderful, especially the Kobe beef at the end of our tour. We would happily recommend your service to anyone looking to visit Japan. Thanks also goes to our bus driver, Uetake-san, for driving the long hours across our many destinations - he also seemed quite nice and professional as well.

BEST OF JAPAN - CHERRY BLOSSOM SPECIAL 2014

3/23/2014 - 4/1/2014 / April 10th, 2014   

Just returned from our trip and wanted to thank Miharu and Miwa-san (our driver) for a wonderful experience. This was my parents first experience traveling abroad and I think we were all a little nervous. Once we joined our group though it was so easy. Miharu took really good care of the whole group and when we had a rainy day she rearranged the itinerary so we did indoor things and we still got to see all the outdoor sights the next day. Since the weather had been cool the cherry blossoms were a little late blooming so Miharu and her whole network of drivers and guides were always communicating so as to “find cherry blossoms”. Many beautiful sights, good hotels (we were three in a room so a little more crowded but no problem), and yummy food. ( I read one of the reviews where someone’s mother wanted to eat natto every morning and that was my mom too.) Yes, you must try the Onsen, there’s lots of walking and steps so for you first timers be prepared and get in shape because they have good ice cream there too. Miharu was great, talked about all kinds of Japanese culture, the old and the very new and made the bus rides pass more quickly and had us laughing all along the way (the black pearls, prime ministers and toilets to name a few:)) Stick close to her and you’ll learn so much ( I hear some of the other company tour guides talking and they were very hard to understand.) She is very accommodating and you can tell she loves her job! AJ tours gets our recommendation!! Thanks.

I was part of the Cherry Blossom tour beginning 23rd March until the 31st March 2014. I just wanted to drop a quick note of 'Thank you ' to your team for the beautiful, safe and enjoyable experience I had. Miharu was efficient, knowledgeable and always helpful with a smile on her face. The group I was part of, was also a good mix of people from different parts of the world. Everyone was there with an open mind, well, mostly everyone : ) to enjoy, learn and experience Japan. Thanks again, and I would definitely recommend your agency for any travel requirements in Japan.

We just finished our reverse cherry blossom tour. Everyone loved Miharu Katsume, our tour guide. Miharu went out of her way to ensure Brian had gluten free meals. We are so grateful and appreciative for that. He was able to enjoy Japanese food without any problems. Also, we had several vegetarians, people with allergies to shell fish, etc...on our tour. Miharu took care of the entire groups dietary needs and ensured the special meals were prepared. Miharu speaks English very well and is so knowledgeable about the places we visited. Most of all, she kept us laughing with her stories. All of our rooms were non-smoking! I know you cannot always guarantee a non-smoking room and it was truly wonderful to have non smoking rooms because of my severe allergy to smoke. The cherry blossoms in Kyoto were in full bloom and at their peak. The gardens were magnificent and the castles and shrines were very impressive. We really enjoyed the tour because we would have had difficulty taking the bus and trains to all the places we visited if we were on our own. All Japan Tours took all the hassle and stress out of our trip. We didn't have to worry about train or bus schedules, or what time the museums opened or closed. We didn't have to buy tickets or worry about lodging and meals. We really enjoyed our night in Atami and the chance to sleep on tatami mat and futon and take in hot Spring Japanese bath. On the long drive back from Mount Fuji, Miharu put the Oscar winning movie Departures on and interpreted the movie for us. We will watch it when we get back to the US with subtitles. Thank you so much for all your help in making this a most memorable vacation. Your extremely prompt replies addressed all our concerns and it was truly wonderful that you wrote an explanation in Japanese of the gluten allergy in details and emailed it to us. We printed this out and presented it to our server so when we had meals on our own, there was no problem in communicating the gluten allergy to the restaurant staff.

5/12/2013 - 5/21/2013 / July 2nd, 2013   

I would like to express our gratitude to All Japan Tours for the wonderful time my husband and I had on our recent tour of Japan. We were on the "Best of Japan Spring Tour" in May and were well looked after by your wonderful and informative tour guide Miharu (very funny lady), and the extended 3 days with Yoshi to Hiroshima. We enjoyed every day in Japan as the people are so friendly and the country is extremely clean no matter where you go. The scenery in the country areas was beautiful and the infrastructure was just amazing. We were astounded by the bridges and roads. Also your cities are very clean considering the population. We had a wonderful group from a mix of counties and they were all very friendly. Miharu was always very entertaining and made the tour a memorable one for us. The coach drivers were always very polite and looked after us with our luggage and the coaches were very comfortable. We have been on tours in the UK and Europe and this tour was well organised and good value for money. The hotels were excellent and we enjoyed the meals which were organised for us as my husband has an extremely strict diet being a Coeliac and having to have gluten free meals. I also have dietary requirements. We would definitely recommend your tour company to family and friends wanting to travel to Japan and have advised lots of Australians to visit Japan as it is a must see.

Also a big thank you to Kanea and Kiyoshi for all the communicating by email and phone before the tour. Both of you were very prompt with your replies and very informative which made planning the tour extremely easy. We would love to visit Japan again.

Thank you for the wonderful experience.

Best of Japan Tour - Cherry Blossom Special

4/8/2013 - 4/17/2013 / April 30th, 2013   

I just recently returned from the 'Cherry Blossom tour' and wanted to let you know we had an amazing time on the tour which had so many highlights it felt like much longer than 10 days. The tour guide 'Sia' was informative, very patient and helpful. She made our first trip to Japan a great experience. I can't recall the driver's name but he also did a great job on such long days of driving and getting us through some narrow streets safely and always with a smile. I'm glad we went with your tour company and I'm happy to recommend you to anyone wanting to experience Japan. It was stress free and we were able to experience the country enjoyably. Thank you for making our holiday great. I already want to go back again.

Trust all's well. Wanted to give you an update on my trip to Japan. My aunts and I had a lovely time. We enjoyed the warm caring Japanese hospitality, food, culture and the sites. I am writing to particularly appreciate and give our gratitude to our tour guide Ito-san Natsuhiko. May be you can pass along this mesg directly to his tour company in Japan.

Ito-san was very accomodating, knowledgeable and above all care for the entire tour bus like his family. He was always enthusiastic to help and make sure everyone on the bus and his tour was having a wonderful time. He went out of his way to serve with gratitude and a smile always. He was always on time and happy to give a helping hand.

All 3 drivers on our trip - Hasigawa-san, and the others were very accomodating, helpful and served with a smile too. They had very long hard days and it really concerned us for their wellbeing as hey were driving more than 12 hr days, however they never let this show. They were happy and grateful to serve us too. It was an incredible experience on how patient and happy they all were.

I really hope you can pass along this mesg not only from my side but from everyone on our bus from this tour as everyone had the same feeling!

Thank you very much for the lovely holiday we enjoyed. It was indeed a very well organised tour. we saw and did everything possible only it was too hectic. But your country is just amazing, beautiful, pristine but most of all your country men are full of honesty, integrity and a virtue so sublime humility. Mr. EtoSan our guide does need a special mention. He was courteous , very very in formative, full of wit and humour and ever so obliging. His knowledge and his interest in seeing that every passenger was happy and well looked after is an art worth emulating. The food, the hotels the sightseeing itinerary were planned and executed to our entire satisfaction. Thank you so much for the beautiful holiday. I am all praise for your Company. Thank you.
