Most of this Japan tour was a very pleasant experience. It was fun going on a grand tour of Japan seeing all the different sides of Japan. Unfortunately, the weather was very unwelcoming. Lot of rain during this tour. Japan has so much to offer we still had a lot to do, even with rain.
Hotels in general ok, but Atami hotel was too poor although location was very good.
Food was good. Breakfast and lunches.
Hide-san was a very kind tour guide and spoke good English, but we would have benefited by connecting a bit more with the group. It was hard for him to anticipate the needs of the group such as water, bathrooms, shopping time.
Very good places, but due to the bad weather we would have expected to avoid getting soaked and still enjoy Tokyo. For example, more museums and indoor shopping time. River cruise should be avoided during heavy rain. It's very hard to see out and enjoy the ride. Hard to see anything outside in the yellow bus. It should not be used for tours.
Considered the best season in Japan, travel cross-country during sakura season as you visit major cities like Hiroshima, Miyajima, Arita Ceramic Village, Nagasaki, Beppu, Matsuyama, Osaka, Nara, Kyoto, Hakone, Mt. Fuji, and Tokyo.
