John L.
Attended Tour: 11 Days Quilt Festival Tour (Closed) From Tokyo To Kyoto(Osaka)

  • Overall satisfaction:

Everything we went on this tour was great!

Best place visited in this tour: Kyoto Shishu Restoration Studio – being able to observe close-up the works. Aizen kobo – the opportunity to meet Ken-ichi Utsuki & see his work.

Best experience had in Japan: The farewell dinner with the maiko. The opportunity to find so many unique fabrics I wouldn’t be able to get at home.

Any place went to visit next time: Almost everything we went on this tour – it was great!

Although a few stops were limited in the amount of time allowed, I wouldn’t want to subtract anything from the tour, to accommodate more time somewhere else. Considering distances, traffic, etc. I think the itinerary we had was well thought out and provided a number of once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Thank you, Hiroko!
The farewell dinner with the maiko was wonderful, truly a unique experience. Thank you for arranging for us – and I can say I’ve played a drinking game with maiko! I’ll never forget that.
Touring with quilters is fun!

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


The hotel in Tokyo was so close to the quilt show! The Dome hotel was a pleasure to stay at.

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


We had an excellent variety of meals both for lunches and a couple of memorable dinners.

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


Hiroko did a excellent job of being attentive to everyone’s need was willing to help people find whatever they were looking for. Managing to take 28 people as a group on the Tokyo metro takes a brave person.

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


So many unique places were included in this tour, I didn’t know about previously like the Kyoto Shishu Restoration Studio or would have difficulty getting of on my own, like the Ichiku Kubota Museum.
