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!
The hotel in Tokyo was so close to the quilt show! The Dome hotel was a pleasure to stay at.
We had an excellent variety of meals both for lunches and a couple of memorable dinners.
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.
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.
Travel Japan one stitch at a time with this incredible fully escorted tour stopping at important areas relating to stitch art. We will join the 17th annual Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival that is being held in Tokyo Dome.
