We prefer to plan our own holidays but on this occasion chose to book some of our accommodation and internal travel in Japan with Japan Travel centre - and we are so glad we did. The staff at JTC were brilliant - their help in planning our holiday (which involved city visits, stays in rural areas near to the Aso mountain range and flights to the islands of Okanawa) was invaluable. Throughout our holiday we were able to seek advice and support from the staff at JTC - we were about to board our flight when we discovered that Aso mountain had erupted the day before and we were grateful for the assurance we received from JTC that it would not affect our plans. The standard of accommodation booked through JTC, with one exception, was excellent. When we had a problem we contacted JTC and within an hour the problem was sorted. This was our second visit to Japan and we love the diversity it offers and have found the people to be most friendly and helpful. Travelling around Japan is easy compared to other countries and I would have no qualms in advising others to do what we did and plan your own itinerary but that said, to have the benefit of the advice and support of the Japan Travel Centre meant that we were able to maximise our enjoyment and were appreciative that at any time we had access to JTC in Japan who would do their very best to address any problems we might have.
