A trip to Japan was #1 on our bucket list. As my wife noted on the flight back, the trip as arranged by our travel planner, met and surpassed our highest expectations. It was fantastic from start to finish! Our agent listened to what we wanted, in all the diversity of types of things we wished to do, and he delivered. He met us for an incredible experience at a Buddhist temple in Kyoto, and much to our surprise, met us again when our bullet train arrived in Osaka, where he escorted us to our hotel and then to a fun and tasty local restaurant for lunch. The hotels, inns and ryokan were each in their own ways, wonderful. As travelers to Japan we had the extra complexity that my wife does not eat any seafood, shellfish or otherwise, and our trip planner made certain everywhere we were booked, breakfasts and arranged dinners, met her needs. Most of all, the people that guided us, including our travel planner, were lovely and insightful. If we could give more than five stars, we would.
So many things. The diversity of experiences was one of the most memorable things. The people were wonderful, including our guides and our travel agent who we met up with on a couple of different occasions. One of those occasions was a phenomenal experience at a Buddhist temple in Kyoto. Another was our visit to Naoshima with a wonderful guide, and our stay at an island hotel. Yet another was the visit to Hiroshima with a lovely and very thoughtful guide whose husband was a survivor of the atomic bomb blast, and our visit to the Peace Museum. I could go on and on about wonderful and beautiful sites, both old and modern, about stays at wonderful hotels and inns, both traditional and Western, and with stories of people who go out of their way to be courteous and helpful and take incredible pride in what they do and create. This was a great experience.
We stayed for 17 days and would have been happy staying another 17.
