Best Place Visited on the Japan Tour: Nakano Broadway for anime.
Seeing Mt. Fuji for the first time & the Kintai Bridge for cherry blossoms.
Best Experience on the Japan Tour: Yoyogi Animation Gakuin, an English translation of documents would be greatly appreciated.
Also Iga Ninja Museum with more information on history in English.
Want to Visit again/next time: Watching traditional Tea Ceremony & experiencing the wearing of a Kimono traditional style. *Seeing more of Mt. Fuji.
Pretour events need to have an extra notification night before departure, especially with the additional costs involved! Same as optional extra/early start ie. Tuskiji Fish Market.
I sought a tour to Japan with two things in mind: Anime and Cherry Blossoms.
Though there was ample time dedicated to the cherry blossom sites, there was barely any time given to the anime shopping districts. Suggestions for future tours: Anime fair optional, provide information about fair focusing on promotion of Anime series, not products.
J-World optional, as it focuses on children, add information. Pokemon Centre & K-books provide good supplies for Anime in same area. Adding information that includes Anime stores in each location would also be helpful ie Rhiga Royal Hotel (Day 10) has a large anime store across bridge walk way that closes at 1900- missed if you drop luggage off in room on arrival.
Everything was provided in the ablutions & rooms were in a clean state. Service from staff was excellent & meals at all of the hotels were exceptional. Tokyo Hotel was perfectly situated for travel and convenience.
All meals provided were delicious, exciting, and highly enjoyable with a diverse range of meal types.
It also helped that there was some additional commentary from the tour guide to understand what was served made the meals more interesting.
Hide-san added some tid-bits of information throughout the tour that added to the experience & did his best to keep the tour on track. Assisted individuals when required & provided DVD's & CD's to add knowledge & entertainment value.
The greater culturally renown sites were singled out on this tour & made the overall experience well throughout. When there is so much to see, it helps to have the sites narrowed down to the most prominent sites.
