My wife and I booked a 15 day trip to Japan with this travel company and worked with their representative, over several months to ensure our trip was perfect. While not exactly perfect (it rained most days we were in Japan) it was not the fault of the travel company. Matthew and his office in Tokyo did a fantastic job securing all of our restaurant reservations (some of which were difficult reservations to get), hotel rooms (including special request rooms with spectacular views), tours, guides, transportation, and specialty tickets. It was a pleasure working with Matthew. He made every attempt to understand what kinds of experiences we wanted, then made recommendations and arrangements to accommodate us. As an example, we did not know about the beautiful cities of Kanazawa and Takayama until Matthew recommended them to us during our planning stages. The results were perfect, as we were able to visit both places, including staying in an authentic Japanese Tea House (Machiya) in an historic neighborhood in Kanazawa. As it turned out, our experiences in the beautiful mountain village of Takayama and the bustling and exciting city of Kanazawa were two of the most memorable stops on our tour of Japan. The tour guides provided by our travel company were excellent and both were fully fluent in our language, English. The best part was the guides were flexible and responsive to our interests and willing to provide tailored approaches to our requests. Our entire trip to Japan was amazing, thanks in many ways to this travel company. We want to return to Japan someday, and when we do we will be using this company as our travel experts.
The entire trip was amazing. The food, culture, people, sights, history, and transportation systems were beyond expectations.
We would go to Japan in the autumn instead of Cherry Blossom season in April. While the Cherry Blossoms were beautiful, it rained most days we were there. Also, the Cherry Blossoms only bloom for a few days, during different days or weeks throughout the country, so if you do not time your visits accordingly you will miss the bloom in different regions.
Additionally, we would recommend taking a day to recoup from the lag of travel and not book too much activity on the first day in country.
