Travel light- the Japanese donít expect you to dress up. Participate in everything you can.

Yes the Japanese are aware environmentally and nothing we did was contrary to this. The visit to village involved various purchases so this must have been beneficial. Conservation support less evident .

We had a fantastic time. The guide, Yuri, was great and the tour was varied and constantly enlightening.

review 9 May 2016

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

Everything! Traveling extensively using the local transport - every type, meant we saw such a large range of places, did lots of activities, experienced historical and modern displays, interacted with the local people and tasted a big variety of food.

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

Travel light. Prepare for lots of traditional Japanese food. Bring comfy shoes.

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

Yes. We travelled by public transport most of the time which is very efficient. We engaged with many locals especially those involved with volunteering. We ate local foods.

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

Absolutely wonderful. Great to get away from the very big cities and engage with the people. Visiting Shikoku Island for over five days was brilliant. Our guide was excellent and the entire trip was hassle free. Such a good way to experience Japan and it's history (old and new) and it's people. Giving a 5 star rating which says 'I am reborn' is over the top for me so I have given the trip 4 stars but I could not fault the tour. It met our expectations in every way. Enjoy.
