What our customers have said:

Thank you for your tireless efforts

Hi Amelia 


Just a note to say that all has gone extremely well, walking, accommodation, logistics, everything, and again thank you so much for your tireless efforts to sort my itinerary.


I’ve really enjoyed everything and particularly the food. I have to keep walking so I can keep eating the excellent meals I’ve been presented with morning, noon and night. I’ve feasted like a queen.


Weather has not interfered to date so hopefully Japan has a break from typhoons, rain and heat (although it has been hot and a bit stormy around Hongu).


Best wishes from a very happy camper!

Juliana is a credit to your organisation

Dear Sir/Madam

On behalf of my family I am just writing to thank JTB for organising our holiday to Japan that we returned from last week.   it was the most incredible experience where we travelled through an amazing country, immersing ourselves in the incredible culture and seeing some historic and beautiful sights.

The hotels that we stayed at, which were recommended were perfect for our needs, close to transport and places to eat and comfortable after a long day of exploring and the Japan Rail Pass was used to on many occasions and was so handy when we were travelling.

All our flights, day trips and everything else you organised worked out fantastically.

I would specifically like to thank Juliana Lee, who I dealt with through the whole booking process for her patience when arranging this holiday and for her professionalism, friendliness and first class service that she provided.

Juliana is a credit to your organisation and I would recommend her and your company to anyone wishing to arrange at trip to Japan.

Yours sincerely

Excellent Travel Agent

Happy Friday Tony,


I just wanted to let you know that Chris has been very helpful and wonderful with my booking.

As I had to change my itinerary partially in Scandinavia due to the change of Itinerary in Russia.

When I called him this morning, he said he had urgent things to do and flat out so I told him not to worry about it but still he managed to go through my enquiry so I would like to big praise for him,  he is excellent travel agent.

Thanks J

Excellent trip with no hiccups

Hi Olivia

Returned a week ago as scheduled from the Japan trip. Thank you from the four of us for your organising, all arrangements made were good, no hiccups , the location of the Century Southern Tower Hotel at Shinjuku was sensational. Rail trips were excellent, Shinkansen to Hakodate was very luxurious/impressive & the Limited Express from Hakodate to Sapporo gave a great opportunity to observe the coastline.

Hi Carly,

Feedback from my clients was tour guides excellent, tours fantastic, food incredible…..all arrangements were perfect.


Thank you very much,

Appreciate your product knowledge and care you took

Hi Chris


Just wanted to take a moment to say “thank you” for all your help and guidance with this recent booking. The clients had a most amazing time!  They loved all the accom – especially the Kanazawa property you recommended: Hakuchoro Hotel Sanruku.  Note about Naoshima: they said they’d stay on the island next time, instead of visiting as a day trip from Okayama due to insufficient time. All tours were excellent. Everything else worked perfectly. Once again, thank you Chris, it was wonderful to work with you on this file and I really appreciated your product knowledge and the care you took with the arrangements.

Best regards

Massive Thank you!!!

Hi Bethany,


from the whole group they said everything was perfect and loved all the accomodation, tours and the fact that when it says 8minutes walk from the hotel to station that is exactly what it was.

I am so thrilled to hear how much the guides and transfer companies went out of their way fro my very important customers. They even said that the transfer lady who took them from the ship to the train station waited with them for two hours until the train arrived and looked after their luggage whilst they went to get coffee. Please send on a special thank you to this driver.

Absolutely everything was perfect Mt Fuji even came out for them (second time around as they missed it on the first time they passed it)

Thank you for all your help!!!!!!

Kind Regards

The Ghibli museum and Universal studios Wizarding World if Harry Potter we’re favourites with our family. 


We would like your managers to know how much your assistance and knowledge were appreciated. We would like you to send this email to your managers so that your assistance is acknowledged.

The Best Holiday we have ever had!

To JTB Sunrise Tours, Japan Airlines and the Japanese Community, and all the staff at the Hotels.

This is an open letter from my Wife and myself to thank each and every one who made our visit to Japan the BEST Holiday we have ever had.

It all started with JAL when we flew over and we had no inflight entertainment for the 10hour flight, it was not much of an issue and all credit to JAL as they offered us a positive outcome when we returned from Tokyo back to Sydney. The professionalism and politeness of the JAL staff, both on the ground and the flight crews was exceptional and is a credit to the Airline and a great representation of the people of Japan.
Our Tour guides for the tours we did were exceptional, particularly Atsushi who did our 1 Day Tour of Tokyo on the 2nd April. He was informative, patient, answered all our questions with politeness and he even sang, which was a great treat for all of us on the bus. We would also like to Thank Yoshihisa Odaka who was our Guide for our ½ day Electric Bike Tour around Tokyo, and the best Tour we did while in Japan. Yoshi was so good and so informative, that we had the best time riding around Tokyo on bikes seeing things from a different prospective than we would otherwise get. He showed us some fascinating sites, he had some remarkable stories to tell and was an absolute pleasure to have as our guide. I had so much fun doing this tour that I will be recommending it to all my friends if they travel to Japan.

While in Japan we stayed at the following Hotels and found them to be excellent and the service provided also excellent.

• JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Shinjuku
• Red Roof Plus Osaka Namba
• Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku

We visited the following places while visiting Japan:

Tokyo – Ginza District, Shibuya, Ueno Park & Zoo, Mt. Fuji, Hakone, Samurai Museum, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, and generally explored around where we were staying.

Osaka – The Floating Garden, Kyoto, Hiroshima & Miyajima, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Sake Tasting Tour, Osaka Castle, Tower Knives (my favourite shop!!)

The Green Car JR Rail passes we purchased were a very good idea and we used them extensively on our travels around Japan. ALL the JR staff were fantastic when we needed support to find directions to places and the platforms to get there, Australia could learn a thing or two about how to run an effective rail network. We stayed near Shinjuku station and the sheer size of it and the volume of people it handles each day is awesome!!

At all the places we visited, the people were friendly, helpful and willing to help even though we speak NO Japanese. The communication barrier was not that hard to overcome as the people of Japan have a willingness to help us silly Tourists.

This trip to Japan was a major Bucket List item for me and with all the activities we participated and all the places we visited, I have nearly completed my list. This holiday is one I will remember for the rest of my life because it was as close to perfect as you could get and that can only happen when all things work in harmony, and Japan showed me that this is possible and can be achieved in our daily lives.

We are deeply and humbly thankful to all the people who made this trip a TRIP OF A LIFETIME, and one we will never forget.

Our Deepest and sincere thanks
Dale & Sheree

JTB, great resource

Hi Marie

JTB was a great resource. The knowledge and simplicity of booking the packages for a school trip was amazing. I was assigned Marie as a consultant and she was very professional, prompt in responses and full of advice and knowledge. I love that the package was so flawlessly put together, and that we could easily include add on for extra activities. I also liked how contact was easily made with JTB offices both in Australia as well as Japan. I highly recommend JTB’s service and packages, should you be looking for an efficient, cost effective and easily contactable agency.

Kind regards,
