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.

My husband and I returned a week ago from
Japan. We were part of the Golden Route
Japan Tour, October 16-22. We want to
express our appreciation and gratitude to our
tour guide Billy and our driver, Mr. Uetake.
May I ask that you assist me in delivering this
email to the correct person at All Japan Tours.
I want to shine a light on these two gentlemen
for all they do for us tourists. They deserve so
We have traveled quite a bit over the years and never have we encountered such a fine tour guide. Billy was so informative and well prepared. I actually took notes on the bus while he was speaking. He had numerous stories and knows a great deal about the history of Japan which he kindly shared with us. In addition, Billy anticipated all our needs and was always thinking ahead to make sure our visit would be pleasant. He took very good care of all of us on the tour and everyone was so pleased with him. On a number of occasions he went out of his way to help some of us on the tour. How wonderful for your company to have Billy as one of your representatives.
Mr. Uetake is a very pleasant, courteous gentleman and a very good professional driver. Often he impressed us as he smoothly handled the large bus. His driving skills were certainly on display throughout the week. With Mr. Uetake driving, we were in good hands.
My husband and I will definitely recommend All Japan Tours in the future.

What a wonderful trip we had in your
beautiful Hokkaido! The Charms of Northern
Japan Tour was fabulous, the Hokkaido
scenery, the delicious food, the hot onsen,
we all enjoyed our time in Hokkaido. We
were greeted by our tour guide, Ms. Kim
Kida, who was professional, spoke perfect
English, friendly and always took great care
of us. We couldn't have had a safe travels
without our driver Mr. Kamada, he was
The Shinkansen ride from Kyoto to Nagoya was short but memorable, the Sumo competition was a great experience, we totally enjoyed our day there. We had great seats on the West Side Upper Level but it was right in the middle and we were able to see the match straight on.
The Naoshima Group had a wonderful time there, the lunch was delicous and the presentation a piece of art. They were able to maneuver the train schedule with ease, thanks to all your efforts.
We really appreciated everything you two have done for us to make this Hokkaido trip so memorable. Thank you so much, .

Thanks to everyone at All Japan Tours for a wonderful trip to Japan. The Golden Triangle tour was great and our guide, Lin, was wonderful (and funny). Both the private guides that you arranged for me in Tokyo and Kyoto were friendly, knowledgeable, and endlessly helpful; I know that I had a much better experience and was able to see and understand more because of them. Mariko Kawasaki, my guide in Tokyo, showed me how to use the subway and that instruction gave me confidence and independence for my solo days. Combined with your instructions on which trains to take between Osaka/Kansei Airport and Kyoto the information gave me a lower stress trip. Ikuko, my guide in Kyoto, took me to some small shrines (with beautiful painted screens and gardens) that I had never seen mentioned in my travel brochures and would never have found on my own. Thanks again. I hope to join another All Japan Tours expedition in the future.

We just returned from the Golden Triangle trip. We were very pleased with the entire trip. Lynn, our guide, was wonderful. She was warm and friendly, knowledgeable about what we were visiting and sensitive to the needs of our group. Our bus driver was skilled in driving us through narrow streets and tunnels. Accommodations were excellent, the itinerary was filled with a good variety for our first visit to Japan. Also we were able to experience foods from the different regions. We would definitely recommend All Japan Tours to anyone wanting to visit that beautiful country.

The reason that I am writing you is to let you know that our tour at the end of March was fantastic. We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for all of your help in organizing this and answering our questions. Billy, our tour guide was wonderful. If I ever go to Japan again, I will definitely request him as a guide. He was so organized and full of information. The itinerary as well as the cuisine was well done.

I just want to tell you what a delight Kim Kida is and how she made our trip recently the best ever. She is always happy, courteous, sensitive and aware of her guests needs, while keeping on schedule and helping everyone to keep to the schedule as well. She is very knowledgeable and if she doesn’t know the answer to a question, she researches it until she finds the answer. She goes above and beyond and we will be recommending her and All Japan Tours to everyone we meet. Fantastic trip thanks to her!!!
