Firstly, Japan Travel Centre were amazing from start to finish. The company helped us with the itinerary and made insightful suggestions to enhance our experience. Elena was a fantastic advisor and was generous with sharing with us her extensive knowledge of the country.
The itinerary itself was varied and allowed us, as first timers to Japan, to get a great overview of the country. Elena booked us into a mix of great western style hotels situated close to train stations, metros and local conveniences; and Ryokans (traditional Japanese inns),where we could experience top notch Japanese food and use the Onsen (thermal baths) - allowing us to experience a bit more of Japanese culture.
The whole programme was paced well and varied with trips to Mount Fuji, the Japanese Alps, the historic town of Kanazawa, the mountain town Takayama, the cultural hotbed Kyoto, the reflective Hiroshima, the picturesque island of Miyajima and the bustling bright lights of Tokyo.
The self guided tour suited us and the intinery gave us some freedom to plan our own day. Japan Travel Centre sorted out our JR 7 day rail passes, metro cards and SIM cards with easy instructions for use. These all allowed us to get the most out of our holiday experience.
Would we return to Japan? Without a doubt yes! Now that we have tipped our toes in we want to emmerse ourselves further into this deeply fascinating and enticing country. Thank you Elena and Japan Travel Centre your service was first rate and we have returned home with some golden Memories.
