    Some more time in Osaka and visiting Koyasan at a less busier time would be good. The visit to the tea farm was great! Special Thanks to our guide, Morry the magician. He led us to some places that weren't included in the included activities.

    Great sample of all the classic Japanese foods! My favourite experiences on this trip were the fresh sushi from the Tokyo fish markets, the make-your-own takoyaki in Osaka, and the all-you-can-eat shabu shabu in Kyoto! Would definitively recommend... Show more

    We feel is very important to travel with a guide to answer any doubts and to better know the culture. It was interesting, on a culture and gastronomical view, the selection of the places we visited.
