This travel company- in particular, our agent, was fabulous to work with. Under our agent's guidance, we put together a rather complicated 10 day trip. She worked with us every step of the way to accommodate all of our requests to help make our trip a very memorable one. Our travel company obviously pays great attention to detail, and this has great payoff when traveling in a foreign country. The individual guiding that we had in both Tokyo and Kyoto was fabulous. Our guides, both fluent English speakers, were extremely knowledgeable about local Japanese culture and very responsive to our requests and physical needs. All of the travel plans within the country were prearranged, so transfers (airport to hotel and back) and travel within Japan very straightforward. The cultural experiences we had were very memorable as well, including two and a half days spent with friends. Although not inexpensive, we feel like we received great value for our money, and would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for guidance in traveling to that wonderful country.
Trips to shrines and temples, fish market in Tokyo, Peace Memorial in Hiroshima, the small shops and local eateries we visited, time spent interacting with guides, local folks, friends in Hiroshima.
The trip to Tokyo was exhausting. We booked with Air Canada since it was several hundred dollars cheaper than competitors, but we were called three days before our departure, saying our first flight (San Jose, CA to Vancouver) has been cancelled (no explanation), so we ended up having to take an earlier San Jose-Portland flight, then fly Portland-Vancouver before flying to Tokyo. The added leg, in combination with a two hour delay on the runway in Vancouver resulted in a longer recovery period once we got there. (We're 71, so such unexpected events have greater impact than on younger folks.) If we were to do it again, we'd pay the extra $$ and fly United or Japan Air non-stop. Other than that, I don't think we'd change a thing about our trip. There was built in flexibility because of the expert individual guiding.
