Amazing Autumn leaf color at Eikando Temple, Kyoto - photos simply don't do justice to just how gorgeous and vivid the colors are - like the trees have been photoshopped!
Wonderful trip organised by Japan Travel Centre - will be back again one day definitely!

Osaka, Kyoto, Ise, Nagano, Tokyo
14 day (Ordinaary) Pass
Train travel is a total delight in Japan - the trains are immaculately clean, plentiful and always on time. Being able to send heavy luggage ahead meant very easy journeys. The Japan Travel Centre booked our hotels (always conveniently located near a train station) and provided maps of the immediate location for easy access. I would like to especially mention the wonderful help of Jessica Asai-Lawrence, particularly when I misplaced the hotel vouchers and she had to email them to me! Culturally, everyone is extremely polite and helpful, everywhere is very clean (no litter anywhere), making Japan a total delight to experience.

9-21 October 2017
The cities and places we visited were: Tokyo, Takayama, Kanazawa, Myijaima, Shirakawa-go, Kyoto.
We loved Japan and the places we visited were all very different; all amazing. It was our first time in Japan, which is one of the easiest places to travel around. Everything works, and people are extremely helpful. We used trains, buses, boats - and walked. We would definitely recommend Japan Travel Centre for any trip to Japan - Kaoru was so helpful and listened to what we wanted. Everything was perfect!

6th-25th October 2017
14-day Full Pass
As it was our first time in Japan we wanted a varied itinerary. We booked our accommodation in Japan and Kyoto but then came up against a few obstacles. Fortunately, the Japan Travel Centre was at hand to sort out our difficulties. Kaoru took infinite pains to plan our route and accommodation. At every stage she was most helpful and we would certainly recommend the services of the Japan Travel Centre. Our holiday was indeed varied and we discovered a lot about Japanese life and culture. The highlight of our trip was a stay with a family in Matsumoto; through them we visited places that we would not otherwise have known about. We also enjoyed the Alpen Route which had been meticulously planned by Kaoru. As 70-year-olds, we thought it could be a challenge but thanks to Kaoru and the Japanese people we met it was an outstanding success. We were even filmed for Japanese TV! (See photo.)

5 to 20 October
No but the first time in Kyushu
Fukuoka (Hakata), Nagasaki, Kumamoto, Kagoshima
Japan Rail Pass (Ordinary 14 days)
We have had a terrific time in Kyushu. Hakata was too hot and we are both allergic to the AC so we had a bit of a cold.
the Hotels that you choose for us where Absolut fantastic with very friendly and helpful staff.
our room in the New hotel in Kumamoto was like being in a one bedroom flat so big was it.
In Kagoshima we have had a sight to Sakurajima but the lovely Vulcan didn't want to take down the hut for us so we didn't see much, but enjoyed anyways.
the big surprise was the Nikko hotel in Osaka : we where expecting a small room and we had a big room with lot of space.
all the breakfast buffet where out of this world especially Fukuoka , but all they had a very fantastic mix of Japanese and western food.
Dazaifu ( we went there on a Sunday) was hot and overcrowded , In Kumamoto where the street art festival and we saw very interesting things.
We took a local train to Isahaya and an earlier bus to Shimabara and arrived in Kumamoto at around 3 pm.
Thanks a lot again for your excellent organisation.

Tokyo, Kanazawa, Mijayima, Kyoto, Hakone. And also one day visits to Osaka and Hiroshima.
JR pass for 2 weeks
We had the biggest expectations about Japan but I have to say that those expectations where more than met. From day 1 we felt welcome in spite of the language barrier. People is so nice and polite.
Food is also another experience, they are so keen in every detail that presentations are awesome and the quality is excellent.
We were also surprised of how green and the beautiful landscapes are. Sometimes we felt we were in a tropical country.
Ryokans, Shrines and Temples will make you live Japanese amazing history and traditions.

We spent three weeks travelling in Japan through major cities finishing in Kyushu where we hired a car and visited ryokan onsen. The culture, cities, landscape, food and warmth of people we met were all incredible and it is a country like no other we have visited before. Risa at Japan Travel Centre supported us with planning our itinerary, logistical considerations, car hire and accommodation. We could not have planned such an amazing trip without this expertise and she went above and beyond in recommending experiences we had not considered.
