    4.0 - Good

    We experienced wonderful sites and tastes. The variety of geographies and culture was amazing. I had previously gone on another two week tour of different parts of Japan so I have only one comparison. This one had more unique events; for example the traditional dances in Takachibo. We also had less free time to explore our surroundings than I had wished. The primary reason for my rating the food low was that Before enrolling in the tour, I had asked if vegetarian fare was possible, and was assured it would be available. However at each inn, whether family run or hotel, meals without fish or meat were rarely provided.This situation prevailed in spite of the guide some times explicitly asking for non-meat meals. One problem is that vegetarianism is not common in Japan, and fish is not considered meat. Even in those instances where we spent more than one day at a locale, my request for no fish or meat was not met. I was sorry because so much fish got wasted as it was served to me but I didn’t consume it. One Further piece of feedback is that there was a lower level of activity than expected. I had assumed we would be doing more hiking and exploring of regions than we did. I would not consider this an active tour.
    Oku Japan commented on this review
    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
