I was looking to take a uniquely tailored trip to Japan to meet the interests of my 13-year old son. Our agent and the team from this Japan travel company did an outstanding job. The travel plans were complicated and every single thing over 12 days went smoothly! We got into the restaurants we wanted, including those with multiple Michelin stars, and the restaurants recommended by our agent were uniformly excellent. We had guides in several cities who were friendly, flexible and knowledgeable. The hotels selected were perfect. When we needed to make last minute adjustments to the itinerary when we lost a day off the beginning, my agent made it all work and got us money back. We have high standards and were pleased (and a little surprised) that this travel company could exceed our expectations.
Our trip had a culinary focus. We enjoyed the opportunities to get hands-on experience preparing Japanese dishes. We very much enjoyed our time staying at a Buddhist monastery and getting up early to pray with the monks. We also loved our time on Naoshima seeing the art installations.
I would do even more hands on experiences, cooking and otherwise. I was sorry that the Tsukiji fish market and Kodokan Judo were both closed during our time in Tokyo. Not the travel company's fault but I might have adjusted the time for my trip had I known.
