Simply Perfect

Hi, We have just returned from our 18 day holiday in Japan. I just wanted to let you know it was the perfect itinerary for us. Our wish list was all ticked off and we feel like our schedule was well planned and timed out for the days we had. I was travelling with my two teenage girls and 10 yr old son, and we all […]

Assemblage Musashino

Hey Paul We had a great time in Assemblage Musashino. Thanks for the recommendation and making arrangements. The Ryokan did end up upgrading us to the Shirayuki room above the exemplary service they showed us. We are very happy with their hospitality and your agency. Again, my family thanks you for your efforts. Kind regards Richard

Very well done of the recommendations.

Hi Paul, Just got into Tokyo, and back into the world of free hotel WiFi. The ryokans may be terrific, but wi-fi isn’t one oftheir strengths.. So far, it has been terrific! All connections worked really well. Everything is so much easier than when I was in Japan last time, about 100 years ago. Lots of English spoken; buses, trains, subways all do signs and announcements in English now. Before there was none […]

Fantastic Ryokans, Shukubo and Minshuku

Dear Olivia, Many thanks for arranging our Oct – Nov trip to Japan, we had a wonderful time and everything went smoothly.  The accommodation was all good, particularly the ryokans, shukubo and minshuku, which were all fantastic.  We cancelled the car hire in Nagasaki as my Japanese friends insisted on taking us to Unzen.  They were convinced that it would be too difficult for us to drive ourselves, even if we […]

Memorable Ryokans

Hi Olivia Just a short note to let you know that Phil and I had a fantastic time in Japan. Everything went smoothly. The rail travel was easy, especially as the people were so friendly and helpful. All of the accommodation was great, and in convenient locations.  The ryokans were especially memorable.  The first one in Takayama took a bit of getting used to because it […]

Takayama – a great opportunity to experience a ryokan

We felt blessed when we were greeted by the lovely guide at Osaka airport after a long queue for fingerprinting, face recognition etc. Of course we were weary, and it was a great luxury to be swept to the hotel in a very flash Toyota limo. Hyatt very good. Room on first Japanese second floor, so a good view of the roof below, but it was […]

I would definitely use your services again

Hello Yoshi,My sincere thanks also for all the work you put in to our travel arrangements. We felt well looked after all through the trip, and enjoyed the places we stayed and saw along the way. The Yoshiike Ryokan was a highlight (if only the weather would have allowed us to spend more time in their stunning garden), and next time we would definitely want to […]

Off course we can support your travel to Japan AND Beyond

Dear Clem Thank you for your assistance with my trip. I have returned and I just wanted to say thanks, it all worked out fine. Italy was absolutely FREEZING but wonderful. Both Venice and Florence are special places. I once spent 6 weeks in Florence and would have happily done that again, just walking around and going to look at all the art. We found a […]

Onsen Experience

Hi Clem Well, I’m back!! Japan was fantastic!! All the accommodation was great. Good to be back to a soft bed now though, that’s for sure. They were all in really good locations – even the Tokyu Hotel in Kyoto was only a 10 min walk from the station so we only caught a taxi once when we arrived. Takayama Ryokan was amazing. Hubby loved it, […]
