It’s taken me a few days to recover from our amazing adventure.
Thank you for all your fabulous organisation and thoughtful guiding. Most of all thanks for your consideration, thoughtfulness, great sense of humour and sincere friendship.
It was wonderful to share the last two weeks with you.

What a smorgasbord of experiences! We were certainly given a unique opportunity to sample the delights that Japan has to offer. Thank you! On reflection it is amazing how many things we managed to do, see, and taste.

An extremely well thought out and executed itinerary, leaves one to enjoy the sensory experience.
And being Japan, if the train is due to leave at 12:36, it leaves at 12:36!
