I had worked with with this Japanese travel company over many months to plan a four-week vacation with my family throughout Japan. I found the team at this company to be both exceptionally frank about the challenges of such a trip and quite flexible and supportive in making things work. They spoke a lot from... Read more
We loved every minute of this trip. Just enough actual planned elements mixed with free time for which we had many suggestions. The attention to detail was meticulous down to the train agenda and timing. That train schedule sheet was KEY!!! The maps and walking tours in the packet we received were awesome too... Read more

I thought this Japan travel company did an excellent job in planning our trip. Even though they are based in Kyoto Japan, planning the trip was pretty straight forward. We would speak on Skype and discuss minor details over email.
They were very accommodating to our needs. The reason we visited Japan was for... Read more
Excellent professional service right from the early planning stages. They truly understood our family requirements and what we expected from the trip. Really easy to reach them by phone and they were always eager to help. This trip was one of the best experiences we've ever had. Read more
We were 100% pleased with the support we received from our Japan travel company on our recent trip to Tokyo and Kyoto and couldn't have done it without support from the company's team. The guides they set us up with were incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and dedicated to making sure that everything worked out as... Read more
Working with Laura at this travel company made planning a trip to Japan---a country halfway around the world from us, and a country whose language we do not speak---much easier than we thought could be. Laura always responded to us immediately when we had a question and often provided... Read more
Our agent convinced us that we could travel independently. Most of our prior trips were with small group tours. We were a little concerned about it, but after just returning from our trip from Japan, it worked out much better than we expected. We got turned around a little, but being able to spend as much time as... Read more
The trip was amazing but much of the planning/instruction on the part of the company was poor. Some directions were left out entirely which caused us to miss one of our activities which cost $100. Another set of directions was completely wrong which took us 4 hours out of the way at nearly 11:00 pm through a... Read more
Overall this was a marvelous trip for our introduction to Japan. It was well organized with much attention to detail. Though I was initially hesitant to set this up, essentially by email to a foreign country, it went very well. Michelle had excellent command of written English, was very flexible in the itinerary...

The travel company fully met my desires and expectations for our trip to Japan. We wanted a customized trip, mostly on our own, but with guides on a few days. Where my ideas didn't make sense, they proposed better alternatives. When I suggested a change to their proposal, they readily complied. On arrival they... Read more
Our tour company did an outstanding job planning every detail of our trip to Japan. We gave them a list of what we were interested in and they made an itinerary that was easy to follow with just the right balance between sightseeing and vacationing. The guides they set up for us were professional and personable. Read more
good job. good guides, some exceptional. one big flop was the insufficient time at Matsue, and so we could not go to the Izumo Taisha shrine. we did get the permits to visit the Isamo Noguchi Garden, which I so much insisted on going to, but it was not pointed out specifically that there was a time and...

The trip was a long-awaited self-guided trip to Japan on an itinerary that was our own design. The company was willing and helpful in accommodating our desire to see a lot in our allotted time, and assured us that the arrangements they helped us make-hotel reservations and train schedules- were possible for us to...

The travel company was extremely helpful and cooperative, adjusted our itinerary dozens of times according to our requests while finalising the tour. All details of our trip was perfectly arranged, all hotels were booked, all guides were on the spot on time and all tickets for transportation worked. We could enjoy the... Read more
Our Japan tour company was indispensible in making our trip to Japan such a resounding success. We have traveled to many places around the world but when first began researching our trip we felt overwhelmed with; the Japanese language, the railway, where to go, etc. and all the books that we read just seemed to make...
