“Japan: Ramen & Railways”
Jason - Australia Jan 2020
The six day trip was a good introduction to three cities Tokyo, Takayama and Kyoto. For our trip we had Shoichi Marumaya as our tour guide. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, as he was native Japanese. He frequently talked about local cuisines, daily lives of locals and in depth backgrounds to traditions. The highlight of the trip was Takayama, in which the group stayed in a traditional inn and experienced the Japanese onsen. Compared to the frantic pace of the busy cities, it was a very ...read more

Dawn - VIC, Australia Sep 2019

The accommodation was excellent; rooms were larger than expected for a solo traveller and the hotels had great locations. Being vegetarian ...read more
