A wide-ranging (and exhausting) tour, significantly enhanced by the professionalism, patience and sensitivity of Maya. And such a good sense of humour!
With only 11 visitors, it was personal service. While we were slowing down towards the end, we managed to catch every tour bus, shinkasen and local train, and even a streetcar to get us to the atomic dome when the local train had a problem. She encouraged us to immerse ourselves (sometimes literally, in a bath house) in Japanese culture and customs and many unfamiliar culinary treats.
What a treasure! Please pass our congratulations to home office.
NB: It was good that there were gaps in the program to allow us to pursue particular interests.
