Overall this was a marvelous trip for our introduction to Japan. It was well organized with much attention to detail. Though I was initially hesitant to set this up, essentially by email to a foreign country, it went very well. Michelle had excellent command of written English, was very flexible in the itinerary, and customized it for the 4 of us. The guides were either very good or outstanding, very knowledgeable, and very conscientious about my wife's shellfish allergy.
Our timing to see the cherry blossoms was perfect, and we saw thousands of trees in full bloom almost everywhere we went. The people were very nice, and usually went out of their way to be helpful. English is not spoken that much in most places, even hotels and restaurants.
It is very hard to say what was the most enjoyable, or even to pick a favorite place. The whole country, historic and modern is interesting, exciting, and incredibly photogenic. I took 2600 pictures, and have yet to review all of them though they have been up-loaded to my computer. If I was only going to one place in Japan, it would be the Kyoto area.
I would not have scheduled it so hectically. We spent 5 nites in Tokyo at the beginning and 5 nites in Kyoto at the end. But in between we stayed at 7 different hotels in 8 days. That was too much moving around, and living out of a suitcase.
In the future I would either add a few more days, or if not possible because of cost, or available time, then I would omit something.
