Valerie H. (United States)
Attended Tour: 14 Days Anime Japan Tour | Grand Tour From Tokyo To Kyoto(Osaka)

  • Overall satisfaction:

Anime and culture were combined in one tour

Best Place Visited on the Japan Tour: That is like asking me what did I like best.
I enjoyed everything with the exception of Harajuku. Next time I would opt to see the shrine.

Best Experience on the Japan Tour: Watching my daughter try different Japanese foods.
The friendliness of the people. The staff member running after us with umbrella's when we were walking from the hotel to the dogo onsen.

Want to Visit again/next time: I enjoyed the hotels with the Japanese baths.
I didn't get to see Shibuya on the free day. I wish that was included on one of the other days.

The anime convention offers a free tour to foreign tourists but it started at 12 and didn't end until after the meeting time to return with the guides to see the Gundam.
We were more worried about not finding our way back to the hotel on our own than missing the Gundam and had to leave the tour of the convention early.
It would be nice to have communication between the Japan Deluxe Tour and Anime tour guides and set up an optional tour and extend the meeting time to go back to the gundam to accommodation for those taking the tour of the convention.

I have been on many tours before and this was the first time that I had to switch groups of people and guides. You just get to know and bond with someone then either you or they are switched to another bus.
Clicks are already formed towards the end of a tour so it makes it difficult to find a place to fit in.

1. How would you rate the accommodations? (Comfort, cleanliness, location)


We were able to have the Japanese experience. Loved the Japanese baths.
Glad that the guide gave reminders, written as to when breakfast and meeting times were.

2. What did you think about the food? (Taste, variety)


We were able to sample all types of Japanese foods. Special needs were considered even when the guide was not with us at a buffet meal one of the wait staff came up to Danielle and knew that she did not eat beef and he pointed out all the beef dishes.

3. Was the tour guide helpful? (Knowledge, communication, attitude)


There were two guides when there was a full bus and that each guide took groups to the place that interested them such as to the Meiji Shrine or shopping. Hide was very informative, friendly, and helpful.
I liked the talks and activities on the bus rides.

4. How would you rate the sightseeing spots we have visited? (Favorite place, least favorite)


Anime and culture were combined in one tour. I loved the cultural shows and Robot Restaurant. I loved all the shrines and castles. It was nice to see Tokyo Tower at night.
