From

Very good itinerary that included cities and countryside and a variety of types of accommodation. There was plenty of optional free time to explore one your own if you wanted.

The breadth of experience, from the neon lighted frantic pace of Tokyo, to the 5am chanting of monks at a Nagano temple, all connected by the thrill of the Shinkansen. (more)Keith Swindell

This was an excellent trip. ...Walking in the countryside - seeing parts of Japan that I would never have discovered on my own and being guided by a reliable expert. Asuka, Dorogawa and the Mitarai Gorge were particularly memorable. Also - wonderful exotic food, charming ryokans and soothing onsens. (more)Una Dinning

The most memorable part of the holiday was getting a bit of an insight into the people and culture of everyday Japan by travelling on local trains and buses and staying in local inns in rural areas rather than faceless hotels. (more)Nicola Lindsey
It was a great trip, and Andy, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and helpful. (more)Burkhard Green

Kumano Kodo trail self guided walking holiday, Japan
From
£740
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it was good. The highlight might have been the first sight of the Golden Temple in Kyoto, or the first proper Japanese meal. Tips? As it is primarily a walking holiday through woods, I would recommend one takes good walking boots and a stick. Local benefits? Mainly staying staying in small, traditional hotels (ryokan) must be good. Overall rating? Excellent. All the arrangements worked perfectly. (more)John Brennan

From
£3,530

Memorable parts? Seeing Mt Sakurajima look very peaceful and then erupt and having an Onsen by the beach. Tips? Pack lightly and be prepared to spend a lot of time on public transport as you travel large distances. While it is called a walking tour you don't actually walk large distances most days. Local benefits? Yes, We stayed in family run accommodation about half the time and ate a lot of local food prepared by locals rather than big companies. Overall rating? Very...

Adventure holiday in Japan
From
£2,699
excluding flights
Memorable parts? A painting exhibition in Hiroshima. Tips? It actually isn't that difficult getting around Japan but a few simple Japanese phrases help break the ice. Local benefits? We had very little interaction with local people and employed no local guides which was really a pity. We impacted on the environment just as much as any other tourists. Overall rating? Reasonable.
