    The day with the snow monkeys sticks in my mind but the morning we spent at the Buddhist morning prayer was also incredible. Absolutely amazing! Hugh did an incredible job showing us around and had an excellent rappor with the locals. This has been my favourite vacation so far. (more)Nathaniel Castle
    The art and Japanese craft museums blew me away and despite the cold temperatures, the temples, shrines and gardens still looked wonderful. Not living in a cold climate, I found the snow up north quite exciting. Terrific fun with a group brought together through skilful leadership... We saw and did things we hadn't expected to do and tried so many delicious food styles. (more)Wendy Dooley
    The breadth of experience, from the neon lighted frantic pace of Tokyo, to the 5am chanting of monks at a Nagano temple, all connected by the thrill of the Shinkansen. (more)Keith Swindell

    Memorable parts? A painting exhibition in Hiroshima. Tips? It actually isn't that difficult getting around Japan but a few simple Japanese phrases help break the ice. Local benefits?
