    Dear Ben, Thank you for your helpful feedback and for joining our tour. We are sorry if you were unable to locate the footbath in Chikatsuyu - this is beside the bathrooms as you enter the village and can sometimes have a lid on top, making it a little hard to find. The café here, Hashiorijaya does wonderful plum ice cream, but doesn't keep such wonderful hours (the old lady who runs the shop works just part-time, making access a little patchy). Although this is the first instance of issues navigating the Kohechi trail, we do take feedback very seriously and our Product Manager will investigate your helpful comments regarding the walk to Totsukawa. We believe that the additional distance covered may have been beyond Map Point 6 in our directions, since the journey from Yagio to this point and then onwards to Ichizako Bus Stop to this point should cover only the advertised 8.8km within 4-5 hours. We walk the trails regularly and will be sure to check on these times. In addition, we will look into the directions to Saizen-in and your wider points on the directions; we hope you enjoyed the stay at this lovely Shukubo and indeed your wider trip with us. Thank you again for joining our tour and taking the time to write to us. Kind regards, Oku Japan

    Dear Suzanne - we are delighted you enjoyed most aspects of the Land of Fire tour. I'm sorry you were served much more fish than you liked. We requested meals without meat for you (and mentioned this when we sent you the final tour itinerary); we would happily have requested meals without fish or meat instead. We fully appreciate that you explained on booking that you eat fish only 'on occasion', but we did wish you to have as many dining choices as possible in line with your request. We know that typhoon damage on one of the trails on Yakushima island curtailed some of the regular walking - weather conditions are beyond our control but we recognise this was frustrating. I hope we may have the pleasure of welcoming you to a different part of Japan in the future. Jeremy from Oku Japan
