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.

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.

Due the typhoon, we had a few revisions to the schedule, however Miharu did an amazing job to navigate us through it all.

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.

There were 9 of us in this custom tour to visit Osaka, Kyoto,Kobe, Hiroshima, Hakone, and Tokyo. I cannot say enough about Mr. Kiyoshi Katsume of All Japan Tours who helped us put together our tour and was so patient and prompt in his responses to our numerous changes and questions in putting together our tour. Our tour guides in the cities were EXCELLENT, Very knowledgeable and patient with us. They worked overtime to be with us and help us... all with a smile. We loved the Marriott Hotel in Osaka and the Prince Hotels in Tokyo was older but so centrally located near Shin-Osaka station. Our breakfasts were included. We loved the Marriott Shin-Osaka buffet! We loved our bento cooking class in Kyoto where we learned to make chicken, Musubis, japanese egg, nishime. We loved Hiroshima and Meiji Shrine.

Just completed a trip of a lifetime: The Golden Triangle of Japan (Reverse): Takayama Autumn Festival Tour 2019 October 6th, 2019 - October 13th, 2019 with added bonus Typhoon Hagibis! Thank you for a wonderful and impact filled journey. The sites, beautiful Kaiseki meals and extra experiences (Kimono show, Maiko/Geisha tea ceremony, sushi making, Shinkansen...) are so well thought out to provide a glimpse into so many aspects of Japan. Our tour guide Ai-san and driver Harada-san added to make this an A+ experience. Ai-san's Japan knowledge and most enjoyable delivery kept us most entertained. Together their thoughtful and genuine safety concerns in keeping the group updated on the approaching Typhoon Hagibis was much appreciated. I highly recommend over and over! Thank you so much!!

Able to see many temples and still have free time to ourselves. Our tour guide Ai was friendly and was always available for any help. She was knowledgeable of places we visited and culture of Japan.

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.

This was an outstanding tour! Our tour guide, Ai was very knowledgeable, friendly and super helpful. We had a great driver too, Harada san. We had to deal with Typhoon Hagibis, but felt very safe and taken care of. I would definitely use All Japan Tours again.

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
