I thoroughly enjoyed the Japan tour.  The days were very full, but always a comfortable hotel room to recover in.  Our guide, Mari, was an absolute star – full of interesting information, helpful and caring.  Her little illustrations and chatty details about the life of Mr Japanese and Mrs Japanese were very entertaining.

What a contrast to India, where everything is bright colours, noise, hooting, jostling etc.  roads in Japan were so orderly, all cars new and moving silently along the highway in an orderly fashion, no barging in and definitely no hooting.  Everything so spotlessly clean & tidy, and not a piece of litter anywhere.  Magnificent scenery, gardens, temples, shrines etc.  It was a very memorable trip.

Thanks & regards
