I contacted the travel planner through a referral from Zicasso. My wife and I interviewed two other agents by phone and decided that this travel planner was the most familiar with Japan. He lives in Kyoto and has extensive experience with tourism in Japan.After a thorough discussion about our expectations and any limitations we may have, our travel planner drafted a 14 day itinerary that included all our requests. He confirmed that the hotel accommodations would reflect authentic Japanese culture and be friendly to my back problems.The entire trip from the moment we cleared customs until we departed for home was extremely well planned and executed. Hotels were perfectly chosen, guides were well informed and spoke excellent English and sites that we visited were outstanding. We feel that we have had a wonderful look at the wonders of Japan and the remarkable culture. If you are looking for a travel agent that understands how to customize a luxury vacation in Japan and make your experience unforgettable, this planner can make it happen. If I were to go to Japan again I would start with a call to our travel planner.
Tokyo hotel, Ryokan in Hakoni, shrines and temples in Kyoto, visit to Nara, Zen hotel in Kyoto, excellent guides, Kaiseki meal in Kyoto, a bottle of wine sitting under the cherry blossoms along the river in Kanazawa
I would add one more day in Hiroshima. The travel from Hakoni to Hiroshima takes a half day and leaves only a half day to tour the museum, see the A bomb dome memorial and travel to Mijama (sp) Island. We left early the next day for Kyoto.
