You get the freedom to decide which sights to visit and how long to spend at each one, but you don't have to worry about making arrangements for transportation and lodging!
Must be done..
Great trip. The bullet train can't be beat. Everything was very organised. The hotels chosen for my trip were fantastic with very helpful staff.
Just made it so easy to see more of Japan. Great hotels and so impressed by Japanese transport.
to start with the instructions and tickets were waiting for me at my Tokyo hotel before I booked in. The instructions were easy to understand. I opted for the late train time and I thought I would give up some time in each of the cities but this was not the case the way the train times went there was plenty of time to look around. Seating on the train is reserved and they booked window seats on all journeys. The hotels were 1st class and a lot better than I expected, the bonus was they were only 5 minutes from the train stations so not much carrying luggage around. I was only in Japan for 7 days and wanted to see more than Tokyo, if visiting other sites is something you want to do I would highly recommend this tour
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who would like to experience the real Japan. This was definitely the highlight of our trip. Also, thanks to Walter for being so helpful with our questions. The hotels were amazing and we didn't have to worry about anything as everything was booked for us.

What great value! Everything was straightforward and easy to follow. The hotels were amazing and couldn't have been more convenient. I would recommend taking the early morning trains so you maximize your time in Kyoto and have the option of leaving later in unreserved cars. The cars are all the same beautiful. I would recommend traveling with as little luggage as you can so you can enjoy the experience without the hassle of the bags. I too would recommend going to the Peace Park on day of arrival and utilizing those hours so that you can either return or go to the Island the following day. A good restaurant near the Museum across the street with the Peace Bridges is Mario's Italian! Even National Geographic tourists were eating there! Another day in Hiroshima would have been nice.
This trip is fantastic! Arrived Tokyo on Sunday evening and the train tickets were waiting for us at our hotel. From that moment everything worked perfectly, and the hotels were better than I expected. No breakfast included but because the hotels are in or very close to train stations, there are plenty of great food options within reach. For Hiroshima, I would recommend doing the peace park etc on day of arrival and then Miyajima on Day 2. Enjoy!
Awesome is all I can say. The hotels were very nice and the staff there were great. The Shinkansen instructions were right in the money. Great trip.
A must see, and the experience on the Bullet was amazing. Fabulous scenery and a great train ride
Everything went perfect - information, transport and hotels - could not have been better!!!
