On August 27th, our party of 6 travelled from Alberta Canada to Japan. Through Zicasso, we hired this agency to custom design a 12 day trip. We stayed in 5 different cities and travelled by train to each destination. At each new location a guide was always waiting right on the platform for us. Travelling by train was relatively new to us and the huge stations were abit alarming to us, but by day 7 we were feeling like real professionals. Our hotels were excellent and the guides were great. Our travel consultant was wonderful to deal with and he even came to the train station in Kanazawa to personally meet us and send us on our way to Hiroshima. There was not even one little glitch in our itinerary and I would highly recommend using this company if you desire small group travel in Japan. After our 12 days, we boarded a cruise ship but the cruise did not even come close to the perfection of our land tour.
I can not pick out the most enjoyable part of the trip, I can only say that each day was a new adventure and we were always excited to start our day. My husband and I are iced coffee fans and we were pleasantly surprised to find that Japan also loves iced coffee!!! 7/11 is on every corner, of every city, and their iced coffees were perfect. Happy hour each day, was filled with stories and laughter as we reflected on our day. Meal times were always enjoyed as we experimented and tried new dishes.
The only thing I would do different would be to go during a cooler season. It was very hot and humid. We went at this time of year to see a fireworks festival, but in hind sight, it was not worth it. Next time we will go in the early spring to see the cherry blossoms.
