In Japan, everything seems to run efficiently, politely, on time and with exact precision. I would use the exact same words to describe the trip coordinated by our travel agent and staff at our travel company.
Our agent helped us plan and then coordinate a 2 week trip in Japan for our family. We appreciated the fact that our travel agent created an unique itinerary that accommodated our desire to explore and experience the sites of Japan- all this with an 8 year old boy. The entire planning process and trip was seamless and we never experienced the slightest of problems. Our travel agent was prompt, thorough and extremely well organized. The itinerary was prepared well in advance of our departure so we were able to travel with ease. Our hotels and guides were exceptional, to put it mildly. Our travel agent was transparent with costs which was refreshing. He took the time to greet us soon after our arrival, which was extremely thoughtful and appreciated.
I can’t say enough about the organization of everything. A small example would be the fact that our guide/drivers would actually come up to the train platform to greet us. So the moment we got off the train they were there waiting.
We spent time in Tokyo, Hakone, Hiroshima and Kyoto. The highlights were definitely the private Taiko drumming lesson, private Samurai sword lesson, privated guided tours of Tokyo, tour Hiroshima and Kyoto.
The food was great as well. Our agent arranged for a number of different restaurants to try. These recommendations were welcome, as the choice of restaurants in Japan are endless, so it was nice to have someone else to narrow it down for us on occasion.
Our son loved Akihabara district, Disney Sea, trains, metro, the Sumo lunch (complete with a chance to wrestle with the Sumo wrestlers), food and the guides (They seemed to know the exact time to stop for ice cream ).
We all admired the respectful, kind, soft spoken nature of the Japanese people .
