Our tourguide was really friendly and helpful and made a huge effort to ensure each traveller got what they wanted out of the tour.

    Although this tour is one of the cheapest in Japan, I couldn't have asked for much more. The guide was very helpful and diligent at making sure we were well taken care of. The accommodation and transport was all fine, and there was plenty to do every day.
