This was my first trip to Japan and I was very concerned about arranging it through a company I did not know. I had no cause for concern. Our Japan travel company arranged the perfect trip. Before contacting them, the friend I was to travel with and I discussed what we would like to accomplish on this trip -what our particular interests were. We decided we would like to concentrate on art, architecture, and gardens. We wanted to travel on our own, but have a little guidance in some areas. We also had a budget in mind. What our travel company did was arrange for us to have 3 guided days-one which covered each of the three major interests we expressed. Each of the guides was exceptionally well qualified in his/her specialty and spoke perfect English. All the hotels were 4-star and all were of a different type. The Ryokan in Kurashiki was amazing. We actually had what amounted to a 4 room suite. Our travel company put together a schedule for all our travel from location to location, that informed us what train, bus or ferry to take and what time to take it. We enjoyed our independent time because it afforded the opportunity to interact with Japanese people, and we enjoyed our guided time because we learned so much about the subjects we are interested in from very qualified people. I would highly recommend contacting this company if you want the perfect trip.
It is hard to say, since everything was enjoyable and memorable but if I had to say:
Traveling in the Subways. I am originally from NYC and spent many hours strap hanging. The experience in Japan was so different. Can't believe how clean everything is.
The food, also different. I ate things I never thought to eat.
Not a thing, except to have made the trip years ago. I am currently old enough that I have slowed down,. There were things I wanted to do that I just could not fit in during the time allotted.
