I cannot say enough about our visit to Japan. The entire experience was amazing. Rich, his staff, and the guides he arranged for us, did an outstanding job. They listened to us when we told them what we wanted, and then they took it up a notch! The country is beautiful, refined, courteous to a fault; and we... Read more
We are still talking about what a great trip this travel company and our agent planned for us... The trip missed nothing and we experienced almost every nuance of the Japanese culture and the unique itinerary was nothing short of perfect! Our agent, having lived in Japan, was able to coordinate all the trains and... Read more
My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Japan. During the pre-trip stage, an excellent Japan expert, Laura, helped me in shaping the itinerary and making decisions about what to see and do. With the help of the Japanese office, the train schedule, guides and hotels were selected. Before we left on our trip we... Read more
We had an excellent experience with this Japan travel company. They planned our 9 day visit to Japan with a very well balanced itinerary that met all of our requests -- sightseeing in Tokyo, climbing Mt. Fuji and experiencing Japan's culture in Kyoto. Our two teenage daughters were on the trip too and they both... Read more
We had a tremendous time with a party of 10 (my four kids plus one friend each) and this travel agency exceeded our expectations in every way. We did Japan first (we had been one time before in 2002), then S Korea (our first visit there). Though the trip was expensive, our travel agency put a lot of meticulous... Read more
I am very impressed with the attention to detail that our agency provided for this trip. Travel to Japan was completely new, and my daughter and I had no clue what to expect. From the moment we arrived at the Narita airport in Japan to returning to leave, we had a wonderful time. Our travel agency chose... Read more
This Japan travel agency was awesome! Our ten night itinerary in Japan was perfect for a first trip. We loved the pace and traveling independently with their assistance. The accommodations were great, well located. The guides were enthusiastic and on time. We liked having a guide for a day or evening to help... Read more
This Japan travel agency made my wife's and my dream trip come true and we couldn't have found a better company to plan this trip with! We started off giving the agency a long list of events, activities and sights that we really wanted to fit into the trip. With great care and patience, the staff at this travel... Read more
Our Japan travel agency worked with us to develop an itinerary that fit our needs and our limited schedule. The result was outstanding! We were able to move at our own speed yet see an amazing amount in the time we had. Our guide for two days was attentive and flexible, modifying our tour on the fly as needed to... Read more
In the era of TripAdvisor, Expedia, and the Internet, do travel agents still serve a purpose? I’m afraid many travelers look at them like they’re magazine writers, members of a moribund industry. After using this Japanese travel agency, I can say that that the best niche... Read more
The tour company we found on Zicasso was an excellent referral. They were well organized and communication was optimum. Their travel books: one for our itinerary where each day was spelled out and the other book for information about our place of travel was outstanding. We have traveled with many tour companies,...

The Japan tour company met and exceeded all our expectations. The agent who planned our trip, was very responsive to our concerns, and to planning a trip that met our needs and wants. All of the hotels we stayed at were great (with the exception of one in Kyoto that had some heating issues and even it was great... Read more
Our trip to Japan was excellent. Other than a bit of unexpected snowy weather, the arrangements were great. Our travel agent was very patient and helpful with all my pre-trip requests and changes. She was VERY responsive, which was very important to me. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because there was a... Read more
Great pre- and during-trip support and attention to detail. Logistics and advance info were flawless. This let us enjoy our trip to the fullest rather than worry about lodging and logistical issues. Read more
We really enjoyed the trip. Our travel agent did a wonderful job organizing it for us and he provided plenty of guidance throughout the planning process. Transportation recommendations during travel days (e.g. when to take taxi vs. train/subway) and directions from station to hotel was great. The details provided... Read more
As a business traveler, I was highly skeptical of using a travel agent to plan a trip for me, but given that this was meant to be the trip of a lifetime, I wanted to at least explore the possibility. I was absolutely blown away by the trip that our Japan tour operator put together for us. Some of our favorite... Read more
The trip was truly a joy, much of which had to do with this Japan travel company, The accomodations were all pretty special, and specially in Kyoto, very well located. The guides, Avi, Michelle and Masayo were outstanding, providing us with many insights into the culture. Of course all is made possible by a really... Read more
The plan created for us was both intensive and intelligent – the choice of sites was right: geographically, historically and logically. The choice of hotels was extremely successful as they were all very good localized, comfortable and easy to get to.
The transport organization was very efficient and well... Read more
