This Japan travel agency was awesome! Our ten night itinerary in Japan was perfect for a first trip. We loved the pace and traveling independently with their assistance. The accommodations were great, well located. The guides were enthusiastic and on time. We liked having a guide for a day or evening to help navigate the big cities - Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka. We also like being on our own and not in a group the rest of the time! There were many highlights, but the amazing and varied food in Japan tops the list, along with the kindness and efficiency of the people. Trains and buses were on time - almost never any wait. Super clean. Felt safe always. Overall, just a great trip and will use Zicasso and this travel agency again!
Trying all the great restaurants - from those specializing in sushi to tempura, sea bream, curry, yuba, soba noodles, Hida beef. Just a great variety and always really good! We liked the beautiful gardens full of cherry blossoms. Those in Tokyo, Kanazawa and Kyoto were especially memorable. We liked riding bicycles around Takayama for an entire day - a great town to explore on bike. We enjoyed wandering around the mountain village of Shirakawa. We loved being spoiled at our ryokan in Hakone, with the beautiful onsen and 8 course traditional Japanese dinner. We liked trying various types of sake. We liked exploring the many corners of Kyoto and enjoyed our visit with Peter Macintosh and a Maiko there.
Spend at least one extra day in Kyoto! 3 nights was not enough, especially since we took a day trip to Nara, and we are glad we did.
