Sandy of Japan Travel Centre made my trip stress-less and so much fun. I told her what i wanted and she made everything so easy when i got there as she helped in ensuring i really enjoyed Japan (traditionally and modern ways). I would recommend Japan Travel Centre to everyone as they ensured I got the best experiences possible and they are so helpful, attentive, understanding and absolute professionals.

I had arranged this Japanese holiday through The Japan Travel Centre, as it was highly recommended to me. And I am happy to say that I wasn't disappointed as they organised everything (flights, hotels & travel).
The flights with ANA (which I would highly recommend) cannot be faulted, mainly due to the superb cabin staff. The same can also be said for the hotels that the Japan Travel Centre selected for us.
We are grateful that the Japan Travel Centre suggested staying in a Japanese style hotel, as the experience was one of utter enchantment.
Using the JR travel pass was a very economic way of getting around Japan, especially as I travelled on several Bullet trains.
Japan has something for everyone, food, culture, history, technology, scenery and much more, and I am grateful that the Japan Travel Centre made the planning of this wonderful holiday worry free

5 Day ALL Kyushu Rail Pass
Perfectly organised tour of Kyushu which provided many unforgettable memories from the haunting museum of the Nagasaki Atomic bomb and the ground zero site; visiting Gunkanjima; travelling on the bullet train and the quaint Ibusuki Tamatebako train; impeccable service in all the hotels and Japanese 12 course banquets; trekking through the rain forests of Yakushima; learning the etiquette of using the Onsen; picturesque Takachiho Gorge and the seven hells of Beppu. The culinary experiences and the friendliness of the people were second to none.
Last but not least, our tour planner Wakako was lovely, meeting and greeting us at the beginning and end of our tour to ensure we had all our documents and understood the plan; her impeccable planning meant our holiday went very smoothly and was easy to follow. We contacted her once during our tour and she sorted out our query very efficiently and followed up with a phone call the following day.

Each hotel booked for us by our travel agent was convenient as it was beside the train stations, and information was provided as to how to get around the city by ourselves (who are non-Japanese speakers). Kyushu is recommended for those who prefer to travel and see traditional Japan, as opposed to Tokyo and Osaka. We arrived in one of the cities, and wasn't expecting snow. It made our onsen experience much better in Kurokawa.

Tokyo, Nagana (to get to Hakuba ski resort)
Having received great service beforehand from the Japan Travel Centre, the trip went very smoothly, with all the pre-arranged bookings and transport being exactly as I'd hoped.
Whilst snow was late arriving in the Nagano area, there was still some good skiing and there was the advantage of there being few people on the slopes.
The people in Japan are extremely helpful - be it in the hotels, railway stations or simply in cafes and restaurants. They evidently want you to enjoy the experience of being in Japan.

Japan is a magical place. The way Shinto, Buddhism, and lively capitalism coexist side by side is often breathtaking. The trains are wonderful, and the food simply amazing. I had a truly unforgettable experience, and would love to go again.

Sandy helped us with our booking, worked within our budget and provided us with a brilliant itinerary. She stayed in touch right up until the day before our flight to wish us a great holiday. The service throughout was brilliant. We stayed in hotel rooms and two Ryokan's and each was picked with our travel and itinerary in mind. We managed to get everywhere we wanted to with ease - and we also fell on great weather, which is a bonus. Each of the hotels picked had helpful staff, willing to provide information and interested in our travels. Brilliant service, we will recommend to friends and definitely, we will be booking again in the future.

First of all, I wanted to thank you Wakako of the JTC in Fukuoka assisted us throughout the planning and booking of this trip. Wakako 'held' our hands and offered many invaluable advice. I communicated with Wakako through emails. She typically answered my questions (which were many) within 24 hours. Working with her made me feel welcome to Japan before I arrived to Japan!
This was a special vacation for 4 of us - 2 of us traveled from the US and 2 from the UK. Before we contacted JTC, we used its website to find the accommodations we were considering and then further evaluated them by using other resources such as TripAdvisor and tourist guide books. JTC website is definitely a very valuable resource in researching itinerary and accommodations. We booked the accommodations, bus pass and rail pass through JTC. Wakako figured out all of the transportation needs for us once we decided our itinerary. The accommodations we selected were mostly 4 stars with one or two were 3.5 stars. We generally like all of them; I have to specially mention Ryokan Sanga where we spent 3 nights to enjoy the onsen town. Not only Sanga offered very hospitable services and enjoyable onsen, their food (breakfast and dinner) were all delicious! I was sad to leave Sanga after our 3 days stay. Every staff we met from Sanga were very nice, truly made you feel home away from home. That could also say to many people we met during our vacation in Kyushu and some other smaller towns/villages. Wakako is a shining example - they go out of their way to help you when they can. When an moderately big earthquake occurred in the northern part of the Western Chugoku, Wakako called to let us know she already checked with Ryokan Kurashiki to make sure that the earthquake didn't cause damage to Kurashiki and we could proceed our journey as planned. She called us while she's off work in the weekend. This is truly a 'first class' customer service!
Another favorable experience is the Japanese food! I can't imagine the variety of Japanese food until I traveled there. As long as one keeps an open mind to try, one could find plenty of pleasant surprises with Japanese food. I never had a bad meal while I was in Japan. The only problem is that I now find many Japanese food where I live in the US are over-rated and overpriced.
During our vacation in Japan, we typically packed our day with activities being a tourist - shopping, food and museum in Fukuoka, Takachiho gorge, Kurokawa onsens, Hiroshima peace museum, Miyajima Torri gate & the Itsukushima Shine, the Korakuen Garden, Himeji Castle, Koya-san and the Okunoin cemetery, and finally more shopping and eating in Osaka to wrap up our journey in Japan. The cultural experience we had over these 17 days in Japan is almost overwhelmed - we all truly had a great time! And we all want to be back to Japan, hopefully soon.
