    Japan self guided walking holiday, Nakasendo Trail
    From
    £750
    excluding flights
    Experiencing a completely different culture was the highlight. (more)John Gunston
    The walks through the ancient forests of Japan were above expectation, but the highlight I think was staying in the Ryokan - the charm and character of the inns and our hosts and the total immersion into a traditional Japanese experience with their tatami rooms, onsen baths and local cuisine. (more)Neil Dillon
    Excellent, looking forward to traveling with you again. (more)Dennis Minchin

    We particularly enjoyed Kyoto which gave a mix of city living with the cultural experiences. We visited Sanjusangendo temple which holds 1001 life sized statues... (more)Lisa Thompson
    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

    Experiencing such a different culture and all things Japanese was the best. Excellent. Fumiko was a very helpful, informative and patient guide. We saw amazing temples, landscape etc. (more)Janet Barwell
    The whole thing was tremendous - felt we got a real insight into Japan today and in the past....One of the best holidays we have been on - very well planned to give a varied taste of the Japanese culture. (more)Anne Cooper
    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
    Southern Japan small group holiday
    From
    £3,595

    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...

    Memorable parts? The cherry blossom in Japan. Tips? Take an umbrella, be ready to walk a lot and have fun. Local benefits? Yes, especially the local hotels amd ryokan. Overall rating? Excellent. Very good guide (Kimi) who went beyond the holiday description, taking us on tours, and explaining the local customs. We explored other tours before booking with this company and this was best value for money. (more)Mary-Anne Rose

    A lot of good experiences - elephant ride on Christmas day - meeting a monk for meditation - Thai massage (ouch ouch ouch) and some great pampering. Food was often an adventure too. (more)Joanna Hughes

    Memorable parts? It was all fabulous! There was an ideal mix of pace and sightseeing between frenetic Tokyo, to gentle Nikko and beautiful Kyoto. Our guide Koi was so organised and helpful, her assistance in getting around really made travelling, navigating public transport or busy sightseeing spots enjoyable rather than stressful. Tips? Double check your itinerary, as it was not clear from the notes that we would have a guide on hand throughout the trip and that our travel between... (more)Lisa Watson
