Thanks for your help with our recent trip to Japan. We had a good time there….and plenty of walking. I will quickly ring you to say thank you and to also say next time and every time we would book with JTB.
Regards Chris and Rita.
A quick hotel report. Hotel Nikko Narita. Bus at the airport across the road…ready and waiting. Great…good breakfast…no noise…7 Eleven down the road 200 metres.
Shinyokohama Kokusai Hotel My choice…good location for Shinkansen. But!!!!! They do not turn off the heating. Totally stupid. That forces you to open the window to let in fresh air. Leaving you with outside traffic noise. Breakfast voucher…is enough to get you going. Can’t recommend it because of the heating.
Royal Park Inn Nagoya What a lovely hotel…which will be demolished next year. Nice room…bigger….older style. Heating is left on in Winter….but it is not connected until you turn it on.. Relief…nice and cool. Drink voucher supplied….a nice touch. Nice and civilised in the lounge. And a good variety of drinks ( non alchoholic ) We paid for breakfast…1650 yen….but very good 4 the price. Good selection….lovely Danish pastries. A great hotel.Fairly close to the station. And they allowed us to leave our bags in the foyer without charge until 1.30…while we visited Nagoya Castle. I did offer to pay a fee but they said no.
Cross Hotel Osaka Great. Beautiful upgraded room with a special Japanese shower and bath. Around the corner is the Shinsaibashi arcade. Breakfast reduced to 1300 yen…and we were happy enough.
Everything just works in Japan…but homework helps. Thank you for the good plane seats both ways.
