Excellent communication from the start. We gave this travel agency fairly short notice (about 6 weeks) to put together a trip to Japan. Our travel advisor did a wonderful job. She was in frequent communication, easy to contact, and tailored the trip to our preferences and budget. Before the trip we received an extensive itinerary with detailed information, travel guides, maps, and all tickets, drivers, tour guides, etc. were exactly where and when they were supposed to be. There was not a single problem, and the scope of the trip and the number of places visited was perfect. The private tour guides were also top notch. Highly recommended.
It was all new and interesting, so hard to say. I think we mostly enjoyed the bustling excitement of Tokyo and exploring its neighborhoods, but wouldn't have wanted to have missed any of the places we went. We also really enjoyed attending a sumo match, as we are fans and watch from home, but also really enjoyed the rural preserved historic visit of shirakawa-go.
We were happy to experience the traditional Japanese ryokan with the hot springs, and the multicourse traditional meals served in your room, but after one night, we were a bit bored and returned to Tokyo early. There is not much to do at a ryokan, as you can only spend so much time in a hot tub, and the town was small and pretty well covered in an afternoon. We were able to see more things in Tokyo that we would have missed otherwise. Even though we paid for the extra night in Tokyo and didn't ask or expect for a refund from the ryokan, we were extremely happy that we changed our plans. If we did it over again, we would have had it planned that way, and if we return, we probably would not stay in a ryokan again.
