We sent a bucket list of places to the local company via travel local who came up with an itinerary which managed to incorporate nearly all our list - or gave alternatives which we could manage within the time frame we had. The itinerary was really detailed and very helpful and all our questions and queries were answered promptly before our stay. The location of the hotel choices were excellent and the hotels were comfortable. Would completley recommend
The hotel choices and location were excellent
We tried several times to speak to Carrick as she had organised the trip and knew our itinerary in detail. We arrived just after the typhoon and wanted more clarity on whether to and how to change our trip and struggled getting answers. We also felt that we should have been contacted by the local company at the time of the typhoon (ether just before or just after) to ensure we were ok as we had only been in Japan 24 hours when the typhoon hit.
Dont be tempted to try and put too much in.
Kyoto - for its temples, palaces, Osaka for the mad church in the hotel foyer on the 22nd floor and Tokyo for its energy
