review 28 Dec 2019

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

So many memorable things but I think just getting out of the city and seeing and being part of rural Japan was incredible. The organisation was exemplary, the instructions and timings worked perfectly and the accommodation was all very well chosen and incredibly froendly and welcoming.

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

Try to fit some walking into the agenda as there's a lot of train/bus travel. If the weather's great then get out and into the forests.

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

Using public transport rather than car hire has to be fairly environmentally friendly. Staying at local inn's rather than international chains is beneficial locally.

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

Fantastic, was the best part of my 28 day Japanese adventure.

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

Traveling on local trains and buses and the opportunity to do lots of walking in beautiful places. Having a small group.

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

Be prepared to eat lots of authentic Japanese food. Pack light although the luggage forwarding was great. Japanese accommodation can be challenging at times. - lots of slipper changing and clambering up from the floor futons. Get fit .

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

Locals benefited from the economic impact of our tourism. Travel does not reduce environmental impact. But we were very aware of managing our rubbish and maintain the pristine environment. Our activities did not aim to support conservation.
