I highly recommend using Japan Custom Tours if you are planning a trip to Japan. You can create your own trip, tailor it to your needs and desires, and even change it as needed. We just returned from a trip with Patrick as our guide. We were able to see so much within our 10 days because of Patrick's knowledge of the trains as well as the cities that we visited (Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima, Myajima, Tokyo, Nikko, Kanazawa, Hakone, and Enoshima). Patrick was also entertaining, making the trip truly memorable. His attention to detail and individual preferences contributed to a great experience that my family will not forget.
Thank you for choosing to tour with Japan Custom Tours. It was a pleasure showing you the sights and you did manage to pack a 14 day trip into 10 days. While it was busy and had some long days to fit everything in, there were some great places and activities along the way - I think we covered almost everything you had on your list.
