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

Japan is a fascinating and exhilerating place to visit. The cultural differences are marked, and with so many great sights, both traditional and modern, there is so much to see and experience. The people are very welcoming and really do want you to have the best time possible.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take adavntage of the felxibility offered by the vacation provider but stick with their main ideas/routes. Their experience really helped.

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

It definitely felt that the majority of our expenditure was focused on Japanese people and businesses. In terms of the environment, Japan is a challenging place with loads of packaging, and turning down bags offered can seem a little uncomfortable sometimes. But get your own chopsticks and carry your own carry bag. Using public transport is very easy, if a little crowded in some of the interchanges.

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

Excellent, stunning, huge variety of tastes, sights and experiences. We went budget but it was definitely first class!
