Reviews for Japan family holiday


review 21 Apr 2017

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

a) Our guide, Silvia, recommended a garden (Happo-en) in Tokyo to visit on our free day - the trip there and the garden were great fun, we all enjoys the blossom and chatting to brides having their photos taken with the magnificent blossom as a background. b) having our picture "printed" onto top of our coffee/ baby chin no's at Ginza shopping was amazing highlight. c) Sushi breakfast was amazing - Silvia took us to a very special place for this authentic experience -the down side is that Sushi will never ever be as good as this experience! d) Seeing Mout Fuji and a real volcano eating black eggs at the top. e) getting to Okouchi Sandi Garden very early before all the other tourists - the garden was very tranquil and still had some blossom - it felt good to leave before the tourist crowds arrived via the bamboo forests. Extra special mention must go to Silvia who helped minimise the cultural gap for us, she really helped us to feel at ease in Japan, our flight was delayed and with the change of hotel we missed the welcome meeting - we still hit the ground running on day one and achieved so much in our first 24 hours - we doubt this would have been possible without Silvia!

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

Think about packing light for the guest house break - slippers, robes and pyjamas are all supplied at the guest house so only need change of clothes for everyone!

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


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

Fantastic family experience, our children enjoyed other kids on the adventure with them, we walked more and packed lots into each day!
