An absolutely stunning itinerary that shows so much of Japan and its culture. My wife and I could not have asked for a better first tour in this country! Every day was filled beautiful scenery and locations. I wish I could go on this tour for the first time again, it was truly magical. Our guide, Miharu, was the absolute best. During the drives between locations, she shared many stories and background information about culture and lifestyle. Some of the stories were so funny! If you're looking for a tour out of the big cities and more relaxed, this is the one for you. Be prepared for a lot of walking, but it is so worth it!

I've been to Japan a couple of times but this itinerary covers a lot of places that a typical visitor would not visit given the locations and lack of transportation to the areas. The overall tour was great. Miharu, our tour guide, and Izawa, our driver, were wonderful. Miharu was very prepared, punctual, and informative. The both really went above and beyond to guide us each step of the way and did more than what most tour guides I've met would have done. For instance, taking the group out to grab dinner or walking in the city after dinner. Making an effort for us to be on schedule but also changing itineraries around to make the most of our scenic views, such as the sunset, was absolutely amazing. That takes an export guide to plan. The places on the itinerary was fantastic. I love all the shrines, gardens, and unique modern twist of the museums. The food was delicious too, there was a lot to eat.

One of the best tours I have been on. Our guide, Ms. Kim Kita was so informative, so professional and was super pleasant to be on the tour with. Really enjoyed her stories and her passion. My daughter really loved being on the tour as well. Our driver Mr. Nakayama was so professional and so pleasant. Both very hardworking and really appreciated their hospitality. Thank you again

I wanted to get a mix of both the major sites and the more out of the way, local areas and this itinerary delivered well on that. The overall itinerary and mix of attractions and activities was quite good. We felt we got a LOT our of our two weeks there. The areas in the second half of the tour (which is available as it's own one as the Samurai, Gardens, & Arts tour) would have been difficult or time consuming to reach and navigate as an individual tourist. The ryokan were visited during the second week were wonderful, with Kaiseki dinners that highlighted local fare and enjoyable onsen. Our guide, Miharu, was helpful throughout our tour, helping us know where to find items we were looking for and helping our group arrange travel and find dinner options on free nights, and funny.

The tour was phenomenal, the guide was amazing, funny, and very knowledgeable and the way the driver was able to maneuver the tour bus around the narrow streets was amazing. The group of people on the tour got along so well. We have made lifelong friends. I will definitely be coming back, yearly if possible.

Our tour guide Kim was kind, knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor. We appreciated all of the different places we explored and the activities we experienced. I would definitely recommend this tour agency to people visiting Japan for the first time. The tour makes us want to visit again in a heartbeat.

It was truly amazing. This was my first time in Japan, and I would absolutely recommend anyone wanting to visit to go with AJT. The staff was patient accommodating every step of the way when planning the tour. We had 3 guides during our tour as we traveled through different cities, and all of them were great! They helped make the trip quite memorable. I would not hesitate to book a tour with AJT in the future.
