I had an amazing time in Japan. I was keen to see a lot of different aspects, so I saw sumo in Osaka, walked the Kumano Kodo, visited shrines, enjoyed the capital. I finished by a week in Hokkaido, where I wanted to explore Ainu culture. I cannot speak too highly of the service I had from Japan Travel Centre. They booked my sumo ticket for me and negotiated with hotels that had Japanese-only websites so I could stay where I wanted. They advised me on flights and got me cheap internal flights from Tokyo to Sapporo and Sapporo back to Osaka. No matter how small my request, they replied promptly and always helpfully. It is a big thing to travel so far, but JTC held my hand! As a vegetarian, I found it very tough to eat the way I wanted to and I regularly failed and had to eat fish or meat. It is not a vegetarian-friendly country. Overall, though, I had an overwhelmingly wonderful time.
