My 2 friends and I went on the beginners Spring Tour 2019 for our first trip to Japan. We loved it and can't wait to go back! Becky and Shawn are awesome. They were so down to earth, helpful and very knowledgeable. I also really liked that the tour group is small. It allows you to get to know your fellow group members and ensures personal attention from your guides. We saw so many large tour groups at tour sites and they looked a little chaotic, it made me happy we chose a small group. The accommodations were always clean and comfortable and located perfectly. Food was amazing!!! If you are willing to try new things you can have an amazing gourmet experience. The events and locations that Becky and Shawn chose were top notch and we got to experience all different modes of transportation while there.

We traveled in November 2019 with Japan and More for its Highlights of Japan Fall tour and was one of the best trips we’ve ever had (and we’ve been on numerous international trips). We couldn’t imagine trying to navigate all the places and hidden gems of Japan without the fine guidance of Becki and Shawn. Their extensive knowledge of Japanese culture, language and geography provided us an extremely fulfilling and immersive trip. They handle all the logistics and planning of train tickets, itineraries, hotels, cultural experiences and more so that the participants can fully enjoy Japan and maximize their experience. Their itineraries are not mass-tourist based, so you feel like you are getting a more “local” feel mixed with popular attractions. We saw spectacular Fall foliage, gained a huge appreciation for the Japanese way of life, and indulged in unique cultural, historical and culinary experiences. You explore a lot of areas by foot, metro, and bullet trains, so the activity level is highly visual. The groups are small and limited mostly to 8 people, though we only had 4 in our group so was very personalized. Beck and Shawn give you tons of professional guidance, while at the same time feeling like they are friends traveling along with you. Their tour expertise truly lives up to its name, as we saw Japan and a LOT MORE! We highly recommend anyone planning a trip to Japan to consider their tours to make the most of your time and money.

This was the best international vacation experience I have ever had. I have been on a Rick Steve’s tour of Europe and this was even better. The extra-small group tour was an amazing stress-free way to explore Japan. It was great having American tour guides who had lived in Japan show us the best places to eat, shop and visit while explaining the different cultural norms. I am intimidated by the language barrier when traveling internationally and I don’t enjoy planning the logistics of a vacation so the tour was perfect for us. Everything went off without a hitch due to the meticulous planning of Becki and Shawn. We were able to relax and have fun and not have the stress of getting around an unknown place. We were taken such good care of and it was a pleasure traveling with our guides. This tour exceeded every expectation I had and made my 2019 Mother-Daughter trip one of the best ever. Japan and More is a professionally run operation with a team that has a talent for what they are doing. p.s. Do not believe Shawn when he says he is not good at karaoke.

My husband and I spent three great weeks in Japan with Becki and Shawn this past spring during cherry blossom season. It was fun as well as easy to tour with them as they already knew all the tricks, transportation paths, good restaurants, and perfectly located nice hotels along with the best places to visit. Ours was a group of just five people along with Becki and Shawn...the perfect size to have conversation when we wanted, different perspectives, and comraderie on various public transportation methods without being tied down to a slow moving large group on a bus. We appreciated working with them in advance too to design an itinerary that most interested in us, and they went out of their way to get in everything we suggested. We recommend also taking advantage of the opportunity to do a home stay visit they can arrange. We did and had a lovely visit with a family in their home with all of us cooking a traditional meal together. The quieter and serene Kiso Valley and Nakasendo trail times were highlights and quite the contrast to the hustle and bustle of the Tokyo and Osaka big city experiences. There is a good amount of walking, but every excursion is well worth it. Our three week trip gave us a great opportunity to absorb a good amount about Japan with Becki and Shawn as knowledgeable, personable, and patient guides. We wish them only the best as they continue to help others appreciate their second home and country they love!!!
