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

The ropeway/cable car ride on day three! Truely stupendous.

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

Good boots, walking poles, be aware snakes exist - but we only encountered, they left pretty quick, there was no laundry facility at Kotohira - but no biggy, our day two was listed as strenuous- read that as very strenuous. Greeting other walkers in Japanese always got a smile and a reply - even a chat. Wear your yukata with pride and confidence. End every day with a hot bath or onsen!

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

Definitely benefited locals and I now have a far better understanding of Japanese environmental issues.

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

We really enjoyed it. If you want to get beyond the glitz and ‘hustle and bustle’ of cities, this is a trip for you. You will see and experience rural and provincial Japan close up and personal, and hopefully, like us, come away having loved it.

Everything was memorable: The temples, the people we met, the landscape, the food, the places we stayed at.

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.
