Ms Lynn Morimoto is one of a kind. She was our guide for the Golden Triangle of Japan Cherry Blossom tour we just took (first week of April). Lynn's knowledge, enthusiasm, and willingness to share of herself made us appreciate Japan at a much deeper level than we would have otherwise. I especially want to thank Lynn for going above and beyond the call of duty when I got water in my ear at the Onsen (thats another story). When we arrived into the next town, that evening she not only found a medical facility, but insisted on accompanying me and sat next to the doctor to translate as he was draining my ear! We feel so grateful to have met so truly a good hearted person as Lynn. She made the experience one we will never forget! We would appreciate it if you would forward this note of thanks to her. We hope she is continuing to love life and doing well.

I would like to say how much I really enjoyed the Golden Route; Cherry Blossom Special Tour 2017. The trip was exceptional and beyond what I expected. The service from AJT was outstanding and the staff at AJT was very professional and helpful. Our tour guide (interpreter) Miharu was an absolute delight! She was very informative and helpful throughout the tour. She was professional, humorous, prompt and accommodated us on working the schedule when the weather was an issue. She was always there to offer us assistance. I also enjoyed meeting the others in our tour group. Japan is a beautiful country, the culture very interesting and people were very polite. I want to thank All Japan Tours and Miharu for an absolutely wonderful experience!! I would highly recommend your company. AJT is ichiban! : ) Thank you.

We had a great time on the Tour. Our two tour guides Miharu and Kenichi "Henry" were well informed and interesting.

Our recent tour was very good and we both are
very satisfied because we have seen a lot
during the tour. Our tour guide Mrs. Kisako
Miharu was excellent, she took care on us very
I will put something together and I will post it in your website, so people will know that they can trust AJT with their travel plans in Japan. I am also pleased to say that the communication with your office exceeds my expectation.

I want to thank you for a wonderful trip and
excellent itinerary. Everything was perfect from
the hotels to the restaurants to the number of
important sites in Japan that we got to visit.
And certainly I want to praise our tour guide, Hiroko, for an amazing job managing this group and accommodating everybody's needs. She had a great attitude and worked so hard to make our experience a great one.
Thank you to All Japan Tours and to Hiroko for giving us a vacation that we will remember forever.

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!

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 arrived back from our Japan visit a week ago and this is my first opportunity to write. Just wanted to say thank you we enjoyed the tour very much, there are many beautiful sights to see in Japan. What made the tour extra special for us was the tour leader “Billy” he treated everyone at a personal level and his commentary was most enjoyable, nothing was too much trouble for him to help people on the tour. I think AJT should be proud to have him as an employee. Please pass on our best wishes to him from Australia.

My husband and I had a great time in Japan. We really enjoyed our guide Billy. He was very nice, super informative and very knowledgeable about anything we asked about life in Japan. The timing for the Fall Colors was perfect. The colors of the maples, gingkos, persimmons, apples, moss, ferns…were marvelous eye candy. We enjoyed the group of people that were on our tour. Our coach driver was beyond amazing. He drove the bus expertly through all of the tight tunnels, crowded parking lots and other obstacles. We were even so lucky as to see Mt. Fuji. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in seeing Japan.

FYI, this tour was great! My wife and I had a great time. Your tour covered so many areas and sights. The food is first class and the tour guide is wonderful. Billy provided us with all the cultural and historical information about all the places we visited. The bus driver was excellent. Once I build up enough vacation time to see the North part of Japan, I will be sure to book it through your company.
