    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.

    Excellent, looking forward to traveling with you again. (more)Dennis Minchin

    9.5%...Most memorable was the friendliness and welcome feeling Japan gives (more)Dianne Williams
    Staying in small guesthouses in small towns was very memorable and pushed me outside of my comfort zone in a good way, to experience a bit more of the culture. This was a great trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a walking holiday on their own time. (more)Cristi Carlstead

    Memorable parts? Everything was memorable: The temples, the people we met, the landscape, the food, the places we stayed at. Tips? Perhaps not to spend to much time at each temple in order to catch the transport connections or reach the guest houses without hurrying up. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? A success.

    Memorable parts? It was outstanding and hard to pinpoint a single thing. Experiencing the Onsens, seeing a whole valley flowering with cherry blossom, eating lots and lots of extraordinary food. A guide who was always patient and smiling and couldn't do enough to make sure every single person got what they wanted. Walking though beautiful valleys and mountains..... I could go on and on. Tips? Carry as little as possible - all the ryokans and hotels do provide sleepwear and toiletries... (more)Ruth Patterson

    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

    Memorable parts? The beautiful little post towns and the amazing food at the places we stayed at. Tips? Wear lots of layers as it can get cold but you also need to be able to cool down by stripping back when you're hiking and the sun comes out. Local benefits? I hope it helped the local communoities by enabling them to keep these beautiful old buildings functioning as they were meant to. Overall rating? It exceeded expectations. We were all very well looked after by... (more)Richard Gordon

    Memorable parts? Hard to choose the most memorable moment. Bathing naked in hot spring under the stars. Walking snow packed paths, through the mountains. Tips? Follow the advice and you will have a great time! Local benefits? Definitely supported local people and relied on walking and public transport(which was really easy to navigate). Overall rating? We had an amazing experience and the people at the inns couldn’t have been more kind and helpful. (more)Prue Thimbleby
