I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up with Zicasso and this travel company, I had never taken a vacation tour before. With out a doubt, this was one of the best experiences I have had in my life. It was a well planned vacation with a lot of variety, so much to see and experience. My trip took me from Tokyo to Kyoto, Nara, Kanazawa, Takayama and Gokayama over a period of 9 days. Each city had a specialized guide that would take me through many of the popular areas as well as "off the beaten path" areas. They were all very knowledgeable and very polite.
I opted to stay at mostly ryokans (Japanese style inns) and do not regret that decision at all. They were quite comfortable, hot baths at night would help recover from a long day of exploration, and included Japanese style breakfast which were delicious.
If you are considering taking a vacation through Japan with a planned tour, I highly recommend trying this travel company.
Difficult to answer this without saying "everything". I enjoyed visiting most of the locations, trying out different food and drinks. If I had to pick one thing I enjoyed the most, it would be the Taiko (Japanese drum) lessons. It was quite fun and energetic. I recommend trying this even if you aren't musically inclined.
This is a difficult question since I don't regret anything about the trip. Perhaps having more time to visit other cities would be the only thing I would try and change.
