If you want to get the most out of your time in Japan—this is the way to do it. Your three day tour will take you to Mt. Fuji, you’ll experience the thrill of a bullet train, see multiple UNESCO-listed sites in Kyoto, visit the deer park in Nara, and much more. You’ll have a stress-free experience with accommodation and transport organized for you, and a guide to navigate.
We saw everything except mt. Fujii! I guess it is the norm NOT to be able to see the mmy. The tour guide was very informative and worked so hard to make our tour enjoyable.
I was very impressed with the quality of this tour. It was run so efficiently with attention every little detail. All the staff were so friendly and extremely helpful.
Our tour guidelines, esp Yuki, were amazing. There was someone to guide you at every stop, starting from your hotel lobby and to your return, so you were never left alone to struggle in a foreign country.
I would definitely use this tour again if/when I return back to Japan.
This 3 day tour overall was a fantastic experience. We not only met some great people on the trip from around the world that we became friends with, but what we found to be exceptional was the logistics. All of the transportation and luggage handling from the moment we met our day 1 tour guide to the moment we checked out on day 3 was seamlessly handled and very professional. Along the way, every single train ride, taxi ride, or bus ride was accompanied by a uniform-wearing staff, so there is not one single moment where you felt lost or on your own. They even have someone wait for you as you exit a train to walk you to your next transfer train - for us that was at 10 PM on a Sunday night. Incredible! The sights were fantastic. While we were initially excited to see Mt Fuji, we found it to be mostly OK because it took a lot of driving and you end up only being at the fifth transfer station. So, you only see the top of Mt. Fuji, while the majority of your short 15 minute stop is spent battling tourists in what amounts to a gigantic bathroom and gift shop stop. We thoroughly enjoyed Nara and wish we had another hour to feed the deers that were on the ground. Kyoto was a great city - don't forget to check out Nashiki Market on your own, during free time. If I had one gripe, it's that much of the 3 days were spent travelling, whether on a bus or on a train. While that might be inevitable, I felt like the time spent a each stop was a little short. For example, some gift shop stops or shrine visits were only 10 or 15 minutes long. If you consider that the bus has to first park, and it takes a few minutes to get off the bus, you're only spending 7 or 8 minutes at a stop. Before you get to really get your footing or see anything, you're expected to be back on the bus. Maybe this is a universal downside to all group-style tours? Finally, for hotel choice, I would not recommend choosing the Karasuma Kyoto hotel if you don't like hot rooms. The location of the hotel was fantastic close to Ippudo, NIshiki Market, Tokyu Hands department store however, there is no air conditioning in the room. Each room has a switch that says low-medium-high, but there is not temperature adjustment. The entire hotel is set to one temperature, the front desk explained, and more likely than not it will be blowing hot air or some temperature not to your liking. In our 2 night stay, our room was so hot that I barely slept - it felt like I was in a humid sauna. We met another guest who had exactly the same comments about their room. Otherwise, this is a trip worth taking especially if it is your first visit to each of these locations. The tour certainly takes the thinking and planning out of your hands, and you are guided by some fantastic, nice, and knowledgeable tour guides!

This tour was more than I imagined. We had spectacular weather, beautiful cherry blossom viewing, and terrific information about Japan and its people. The Golden Palace and its beautiful grounds were a high point. Our guides and drivers were expert, and provided wonderful information. We enjoyed the tour tremendously and recommend it to anyone who wants an overview of these cultural treasures.
We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and were looked after amazingly well throughout our trip.

Sunrise Tours did a class job. We got pretty good pictures of Mt Full because our guide and driver worked together to optimize timing under the weather conditions. They treated us well with our bullet train trip to Kyoto.
This tour was amazing!
My family and I enjoyed this trip very much. Our guides for the 3 days were very knowledgeable and shared lots of wonderful facts about Japan’s history. If you want a fun, interesting and breathtaking side trip, this tour is great!
A wonderful tour. The Tour company and guides were efficient, informative and entertaining. Shima, Mr. Yoshu and Tammy were wonderful. So much to see and do, and they left no stone unturned. I also loved the fact that we were met at every train station and taken to our hotel. One if the best tours I have been on! Japan is a definite must on the travel bucket list.
Very professional tour .We were looked after from start to finish.Always a representative present to get us to where we needed to go .Everything organised.Tour guides were very good.Some tours required a fair amount of walking,which was a problem for some people on our tour.
