Kyoto was great
my upgraded hotel was lovely
Nara was awesome those deer were cute
kadoshi shrine was great
golden shrine great
lunch abundant and great
what a difference a good guide makes!
All were obsessed with time rather than content
lunch at the lake was so so but the lake was great
lake ashi was super the boat ride too short
train ride back was good but wasnt there a direct train rather than a milk run?

It was a well organized tour with personal attention to the detail. Local guides showed up at every departure and transfer station and made sure we do not miss our trains. At Kyoto and Tokyo Stations local guide showed up at arrival platform, again and had each tourist taken to the right hotel by taxi cab. At Mt. Fuji 5th Station, we had only a glimpse of Mt. Fuji due to the fog and rain. After the cruise on Lake Ashi in Hakone, we took the gondola to the top of the mountain. Mt. Fuji was not visible from there, either because of the bad weather. In Kyoto we saw Nijo Castle, Imperial Palace, and Kinkakuji Temple. In the afternoon we went to Nara and visited Todaji Temple and Kashuga Takisha Shrine. On the the third day which was free day, my wife and I went to Arashiyama by subway and visited Bamboo Grove and Tenryuji Temple.

Japan was affected by typhoon and it rained everyday during our tour. It might have been more enjoyable if weather was nice. But we had a good sightseeing under the circumstances. We would like to visit Japan, again.

Our group really enjoy every tour. Tour guides are very informative. The tour took us to a lot of place such as Hakone, Mt Fuji and a lot of castle and temples in Kyoto. The Nara park is very amazing with deers all around and the stunning Todai-ji Temple.

Loved this tour due to the amazing organisation and assistance by all the tour guides. It was so good to have a tour guide at each station while travelling to and from Kyoto to show us the way.

Excellent tour and extremely well organised. The Okura hotel is definitely worth the upgrade and is superbly located for free evenings and your free day.

The first day of the tour consisted of Mt. Fuji, Lake Ashi cruise, and aquarium in Hakone. Due to the rain, we didn't see the Mt. Fuji from the 5th station. However, we were able to see Mt. Fuji when we were heading to Hakone and got some nice pictures of mountain from the bus. It was raining during the Lake Ashi cruise. Due to the rain, we didn't go on the Mt. Komagatake ropeway but visited an aquarium instead. The took the bullet train Shinkansen to Kyoto. There was tour attendants waiting for us at various stations to ensure that we had correct transfers. Another attendant also walked with us from the Kyoto station to New Miyako hotel. On the second day, we visited Nijo Castle, Kinkajuki Temple Golden Pavilion, and Imperial Palace in the morning. The tour guide was humorous and informative. He made funny jokes and kept us laughing throughout the tour. At Nijo Castle, we learned about the meanings of various paintings, customs, and practices during the Edo period. It was very crowded at the Golden Pavilion. There were many tourists and lines of students taking field trip. The Golden Pavilion is indeed iconic with its' magnificent gold exterior. In the afternoon, we went to Nara to see Todaiji temple and Kasuga Taisha Shrine. The Todaiji temple is huge and the Buddha is 16 meters tall. Outside the temple is a park famous for roaming deers. The deers bow when people feed them crackers. Our kids spent a long time at this park petting and feeding the deers. The Taisha shrine is different from other shrines in that it has so many different lanterns in the gardens, and along the steps leading to the shrine. The Miyako hotel is very convenient due to its proximity to the train station. The station has a lot of shops and restaurants. On the third day, we were on our own and visited the Nishiki market and Fushimi Inari shrine. If we have a chance to visit the Fushimi Inari shrine again, we would go there early in the morning to avoid the crowd and to have enough time to walk through the vermilion gates leading up to the mountain. Each of the location has special and unique souvenirs and pastries/sweets. I recommend that you buy what you like at each sight because you may not find the same items near your hotel or at the airport.
