We returned from our holiday to Japan (via Singapore) almost 2 weeks ago; sorry that we haven’t emailed you sooner!.
We all had a wonderful and very enjoyable time in Japan. The people were very friendly, the weather was good and all tours, accommodation and rail travel perfect. We saw lots of Cherry Blossom on trees too. Our daughter, granddaughter and grandson played the Konpira Fune Fune game with the Maiko on our dinner tour, and both our grandchildren won. That was special for us.
Most of our time was spent in and around Tokyo and Kyoto and visiting our son-in-law’s Aunt in a town near Mishima on the Tokaido bullet train line, where they live in their Japanese style house. We didn’t get to your home town area but did see the Chiba sign on the road to Disney Resort.
Thank you for everything that you did for us, Koyomi, it gave us many happy memories.
Best Wishes to you and your family.

Just to let you know we recently returned from our holiday to your beautiful country and had a fabulous time.
All the accommodation was excellent as was the tours. The JR pass was perfect for our travel needs and enable us also to explore towns outside the main Shinkansen lines.
Can’t wait to return to Japan. Thank you again for all your assistance.

Our family of six (including four children between 9 and 14) had the holiday of a lifetime skiing and snowboarding in Hokkaido in late January 2016. We flew from Brisbane, with a short stopover in Taiwan, Taipei, then straight on to Sapporo, Hokkaido. It was a very comfortable trip, with no jet lag, and we were met by JTB staff and put on a coach for a short but scenic drive through the snow to Rusutsu Resort.
The Rusutsu Resort facilities and service were fantastic and there was plenty of the most beautiful soft powder every day. There’s plenty for the kids to do — a two-storey merry-go-round, a wave pool with slide, dog sledding, snow mobiling, etc. The hot springs were a highlight. I recommend Rusutsu Resort for families with both experienced skiers and beginners, and it is the perfect introduction to Japan for first-time visitors. We are recommending this trip to anyone who will listen. Thank you JTB for one of the best holidays we have ever had.
