My teen sons and I have just returned from two wonderful weeks in rural and urban Japan, with seamless transportation and wonderful unexpected food and accommodations, thanks to this travel agency. The trip was just as requested, with wonderful surprises along the way, excellent planning and instructions, and space in our schedule for spontaneous discovery.
The most enjoyable and memorable moments were with the many kind people who helped us along our route. We knew only a handful of Japanese words and the phrase, "Do you speak English?" Everyone claimed to know "just a little bit" but people universally went out of their way to help us. It really was the single best travel experience for two young men who are learning about the world and its people. We also loved the close-up encounters we had with wildlife, and the private guided tours of world heritage sites and important Japanese shrines and temples.
If I plan another trip to Japan, I would like to go in the Spring or Fall. We were there in August and the heat and humidity were difficult for us to bear, especially since we had planned primarily outdoor activities, such as hikes and long walks in rural areas. We also would have done more city bike tours if we had been there in cooler weather. On the flip side of the hot weather, we did not encounter the crowds we expected at major shrines and temples, so there was a positive aspect to the heat and humidity.
