David & Cheryl Goff| April 2017
Our holiday to Japan, in late April, was fantastic; everything was organised expertly and perfectly by Kahoru.
She was so helpful from the time we made contact and even kept in touch during our trip to ensure all went smoothly.
This was a wonderful holiday for us, one of the best we have ever had and I would highly recommend using Japan Holidays for any trip to Japan, the services was faultless with incredible attention to detail and nothing too much trouble
We told her what we wanted to experience, particularly ryugin style accommodation and delicious food, and then left it to her to make the bookings and she did not disappoint!
The accommodation was outstanding; each place we stayed in Tokyo, Matsumoto, Kanazawa, Kyoto and Hakone was unique, with wonderful service and facilities, delicious meals and this made our stay memorable.We had a tour guide for half a day or more in all the cities we visited and this greatly added to our understanding of the culture, language, enjoyment of attractions, and facilitating internal travel and other activities.
All the guides were friendly, knowledgeable, had excellent English and were so helpful; including assisting us to convert the JR travel pass to the tickets we needed for our many train trips and ensuring we caught the right train.
We really enjoyed walking and talking with the guides at the various locations and learnt a great deal about Japanese culture and history; it was more like spending time with a local friend showing you the sights and ensuring you have a great time.We visited many places with the guides including Sake breweries, wasabi farm, operating geisha house, Samurai houses, authentic geisha and meiko dinner, museums, shrines, cat café, art galleries, markets & shopping precincts, gardens and more.
The cherry blossom season had just finished in Tokyo, but there were many beautiful blossoms in Matsumoto and Kanazawa, and I could highly recommend the time we travelled to enjoy the blossoms.
This was a wonderful holiday for us, one of the best we have ever had and I would highly recommend using Japan Holidays for any trip to Japan, the services was faultless with incredible attention to detail and nothing too much trouble. I have never had a holiday so well prepared and organised from any other travel agent or tour service…. thank you Kahoru for a wonderful experience.
