Attended Tour: 8 Days Essence of Spring | Southern Japan - Cherry Blossom Seasonal Tour From Osaka To Osaka

  • Overall satisfaction:

Our Japan tour met our expectations

Best Place Visited on the Japan Tour: Takachiho/ Good Kaisei Dinner / Dance, especially the last dance

Best Experience on the Japan Tour: Touring Kumamoto Castle and being in Kumamoto.

Want to Visit again/next time: Kofu- Takeda Jinja / Kawanakajima / Hiigata (some interesting places in Hiigata)

In certain places, guides should stay with the group and explain in detail what we are seeing and visiting as opposed to letting us roam on our own.
It would be nice if the guide also explained about the Japanese traditions and customs.
For example, how kids have to go through Juku and try to get into the best Jr High, High school, etc.
Dont visit Himeji on Sat/Sun. We would love to have gone in and looked inside
