VIP taxi service from home to airport, met group, luggage taken to hotels before we arrived at hotels so always in our room on arrival. Hotels very good, some had free spars and free internet access but not all laptops for our use. Escort from UK excellent also Tour guide in Japan. No lunches or dinners provided but no problem. Many places to buy snacks at lunch time. Most restaurants, either have English translation/pictures or samples of food to select from. All toilets whether in hotel or public have heated toilet seats! and all spotlessly clean. No litter or graffiti around. Everywhere clean and the people are so polite. Bullet train (we went on 3 trains) and Thunderbird (once) trains great, but you have to get on and off the train quickly. Always on time to the second. Visited plenty of shines and gardens, many of the shrines you had to take your shoes off. Detailed time table (a lot of walking at times,) 2 half days in 14 day, one we went as a group to see geisha girls performance. We travelled by bus a lot of the time and we changed seats every day, active group ages from about 35 to 75 including an active couple in there early 80’s. We had 2 boat trips one was to see the Itsukushima shrine rising from the sea on the outskirts of Hiroshima. The museum in Peace memorial park very interesting but moving. Mount Fuji did show its face on the last but one day, we all cheered. I would certainly travel with Titan again, a very interesting tour.

    Thank you The lone traveller we are really looking forward to another exciting experience in our travels on this trip, we booked this date as hope to see the cherry blossom in full bloom & some of the celebrations.

    Thank so much for your reply, just hope we have enough stamina to pack it all in.

    Enjoy your holiday with Titan Vonmel, some years ago I went to China with Titan, again excellent. Only 11 in group so did plenty extras than programme due to being a small group. Ideal time to see the cherry blossom in Japan, a site not to miss, as everybody celebrates.

    We travel with Titan next month to China & Japan thanks for your review which gave a small insight into this interesting trip.

    We have travelled with Titan in the past & find them an easy way to do long haul especially if you don’t want the hassle of doing all the driving yourself, it’s also a good company when traveling solo as people include you into there conversation & you’ll meet other solo travellers.

    Sounds fantastic, would love this to be our next long haul holiday. I love everything oriental, especially Japanese.
