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.

just came back yesterday from our charms of southern japan tour and we loved evry minute of it. everyhting was organized starting from home (kiyoshi, our tour agent) to our tour guide Kim Kita. Our driver was also the best. He got us to our destinations w/o any problems at all. Everything that was om pur itinerary was fullfilled. The hotels we stayed at are all excellent and the food was amazing. I loved the biday in the toilets! We loved the japanese style hotels and food the most. We cannot ask for anything more. Most of all, it was the Japanese people that were warm and went out of their way to help us that made our stay worthwhile. My husband and I will defintely refer you to our family and friends. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Just returned from our fantastic tour of Japan in depth (reverse)-cherry blossom special tour mar25th-april 7th. We were very lucky to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom and a clear view of Mt. Fuji, two things we really wanted to see. Your travel package was very complete and we were able to see everything we hoped to see. Thanks to our tour guide Mr. Ito we saw everything mentioned in the package. He made sure we had enough time to see everything and answered all questions. His concerns were not only for the tour but made sure individual needs were taken care of too, which believe me was not an easy task. We were also very fortunate to have a very good bus driver Mr. Uyetake. I would like to thank Mr. Ito and Mr. Uyetake through you, so if you could pass on our thanks to them we would appreciate it.

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
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!

I returned home to the Eastern Shore of
Virginia last night.
We had a wonderful time.
Special thank you to Kim and untenshu. Untenshu always kept the bus very clean and drove safely.
He was always ready to load baggage and always had my mother's kurumaisu ready when we departed the bus.
Everyone was amazed how he drove the bus especially on very narrow streets and tight corners.
Kim told us many stories.
I especially like the talk about salarymen and history of each site visited.
Each hotel was first class.
I very much enjoyed the onsen.
I used the onsen twice: once in the evening and once in the morning.
I was disappointed in how many of my fellow tourists did not take advantage of using the onsen.
Also, we thought the meals provided were all excellent, but many of the my fellow tourist would not eat the Japanese breakfast.
My mother ate natto every morning if natto was provided.
I was able to do many things on my 'to do list.'
Take a takushii.
Use vending machine.
Order a meal at makudo.
Order a drink from suta bukasu.
Etc. etc. etc.

My wife and I would like to thank you, All Japan Tours our tour bus driver,and especially Miharu for a great time. The experience was much better than I thought it would be. Our bus driver was the best driver I have ever seen. He could park or drive that bus anywhere. Miharu was an Awesome guide. When it was over, we felt bad, because it felt like we were losing a mother. The people we met in Japan were great. They were helpful and courteous. They really seem to want to help us. The sites were beautiful and overwhelming. We definitely want to do it again in the future, maybe a longer stay. We have been telling everyone that our tour was outstanding and recommend AJT as the way to go. Thanks Again.

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.

We are finally home after a month away in
HK and Japan, and we would like to inform
you that we all had a wonderful and truly
memorable family reunion trip in Japan.
Not only was it well organised, we were treated to a luxurious 40 seater bus and travelled in safety and comfort throughout our stops in Japan. All the hotels and onsens we stayed at were first-class especially the Sansuroi onsen in Hakone. There were so many highlights and impressions we all had, but one stand-out was seeing the magnificence and beauty of a perfect Mt Fuji on Christmas day – it was perfect blue skies and sunshine, leaving an indelible view in our memories to last a lifetime.
I will send you a picture once I download all my photos.
On top of such a well organised trip was the professionalism and hospitality of Mr Ito, we are grateful for him looking after us so well throughout our trip … we bid him Syonara not as a tour guide, but as our friend, and I must say that my kids miss him too!
We would also like to thank Takeue-san (the driver) for his professionalism and keeping us all safe on the long and snowy roads as we meandered from Tokyo to Hakone and up to Takayama onwards. We had the luxury of snoozing whilst he had to stay alert on the roads.
Please pass on our gratitude to Mr Ito and Takeue-san, and the tour company they represent, we would like them to know of our gratitude and positive feedback on their service.
Finally, thank you for your professionalism and quick response throughout our planning correspondence. We are thankful for the itinerary you suggested, and we have no hesitation in recommending ATJ to any relatives and friends … and of course, we would love to organise our 2nd family reunion trip sometime to perhaps Hokkaido or Kyushu … maybe oneday!
On behalf of my parents, sister’s family and my family,
Thank you very much.
