This was a great trip- the itinerary, the route, the variety were all excellent. The arrangements were all very clear, apart from finding the apart-hotel in Kyoto which was a bit tricky from the map. But otherwise it was a perfect combination of help with planning and arrangements but being free to decide what we wanted to do and when. There is only one thing I would have changed - half-day mount fuji tour would have been enough and allowed extra time in Hakone which we liked very much. It was great to see Mt Fuji from a distance, but travelling to the mountain was not very rewarding.
The accommodation was adequate - not unreasonable for the price. The ryokan on Miyashima was outstanding, we had a great kai seki dinner there.
We took day trip to Naoshima art island from Kyoto which was really great experience, beautiful location and fabulous contemporary art to see. Would highly recommend.
