Absolutely amazing Japan

Monday, October 26th, 2015

Hi Koyomi,

My friend and I have come back from our trip to Japan and it was absolutely amazing. We had such a great time with so many memories we won’t ever forget. I bought so much stuff that after I filled my luggage I had to buy two boxes which I filled up and sent to Australia (they have arrived safe). I did (eventually) get to hand my letter in to Square Enix reception and while I have no proof, from what the lady said I believe the letter will be read by Mr Nomura. Unfortunately I did not meet him but maybe next time I will send another letter and who knows maybe he’ll remember the first letter and I’ll get another chance.

We had no problems with the trains or getting around, it was really easy as you said. The only hiccup was the first day (as you may remember with the rush to universal studios). Believe it or not the plane arrived an hour early but as we got to the terminal we found out that the office that exchanges the JR pass was closed till 7.30. In the end we just paid the extra money to catch a Nozomi and we ended up going to the hotel to drop off our luggage and then to Universal Studios. We did make it to the Harry Potter event and got to do everything we wanted so in the end it was ok. I’ll definitely admit though that first day was very exhausting and I would plan that better next time however I have no regrets as that One Piece show that you helped us get into to was absolutely spectacular. Believe it or not out of all the truly amazing things we saw, for me personally, that One Piece show was my favourite thing of the whole trip (I even teared up at the end) and I will never forget it as long as I live.

I’m sure you get a lot of people saying this but seeing all the anime, manga and games and also how polite and friendly everyone is over there I am inspired to try and learn the language. I did pick up on quite a few phrases and terms over there (which I was happy with) but I want to learn as much as I can. Anyways I just wanted to say a big thank you for helping us make the trip so amazing and all your advice. Again I can’t thank you enough for helping us get into the One Piece live show and even as far as the reception of Square Enix (which in itself is incredible). I really, really, really appreciate all your help and I want to return to Japan within the next 1-2 years and I will definitely seek you out if you are still in the business.

With thanks,

My trip was absolutely fantastic!

Hi Clement My trip was absolutely FANTASTIC! I would go back any day, Japan was so different to how I remember. The only negative I would have to say is the weather, but being monsoon season I didn’t expect daily sunshine anyway. I dont know if you have many enquiries about Japanese Sports Car hire, but you may want to direct your clients/agents to as it was really fantastic. Its located in Hakone and is a small family run business but their knowledge of the area and the range of cars they have to choose from is unreal. The Kukuna hotel in Kawaguchiko was definitely my highlight of the entire trip so thank you for your recommendation! I wish we had stayed two nights to take full advantage of the area. The sumo tournament in Nagoya was also a great way to end off our trip – I only wish I did some research on the history before we left. Thanks again for all of your help in planning my trip. It really was fantastic. Kind regards, Jodie

Fabulous time

Everything went smoothly

Hi Steven and Renee,

I really wanted to say thank you for such a well organised trip. Everything went so smoothly and without any worries, which was huge relief for me given how anxious I was about the public holidays during our visit. The hotels chosen were excellent and ideal for our group. Having access to the phone was very helpful. In fact, if I could repeat a school trip it would be this one and a large part of this is down to your worry free organisation.

Many thanks,

Hi Hiromi I have just returned from my holidays in Japan and will like to thank you for your help .All went well and had many good meals. Museum Hotel in Naoshima was very nice and the art work in the Island most interesting. My daughter thinks that it would have been closer to go from Fukuoka rather than Osaka.Nevertheless, we had no problems catching 3 trains and a ferry. Ferry only takes 20 mins from the mainland. Swissotel in Osaka is very convenient to take the train to Kansai. The concierge even helps with the luggage to the train and with the purchase of train tickets. Regards Bernie
