I cannot say enough about our visit to Japan. The entire experience was amazing. Rich, his staff, and the guides he arranged for us, did an outstanding job. They listened to us when we told them what we wanted, and then they took it up a notch! The country is beautiful, refined, courteous to a fault; and we were able to enjoy it all with great service from everyone. Thank you, Rich, for showing us a delightful time, for the yummy ginger cookies, and for staying in touch with us throughout our ten days! The guides you found for us were all so much fun and they were flexible when we wanted to change things up a bit.
We traveled to Tokyo, Kyoto and Kanazawa. The tuna auction in Tokyo was a real highlight as my husband was a commercial fisherman and this was a must see! The cherry trees were also beginning to bloom and that was an unexpected bonus. Staying in a ryokan was a unique experience in Kanazawa as well as the BBQ that Rich arranged for us with the local fishermen in Hashidate. What a treat to be engaged with the locals! My favorite spot was the Kenrokuen Gardens which were visually stunning in early Spring sunshine. The Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine in Kyoto was beautiful. We also had a very fun afternoon at a local kappa cooking class.
We would love to return to Japan and visit other cities. I would plan on going in April instead of March as it was quite cold (even though I had packed for cold weather). We are so pleased that we did this trip!
