review 22 May 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Seeing Mt Sakurajima look very peaceful and then erupt and having an Onsen by the beach.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

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.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

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.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very enjoyable and interesting and run very well by our guide, Kenzo Sato.
