“I cannot recommend Japan and More highly enough! Our family of five spent about three weeks in Japan with Shawn and Becki, and we had an extraordinary experience of a lifetime.
A couple months beforehand, we found them on the internet and began corresponding with them about our goals for the trip. We love food, and had specific requests like a pilgrimage to Hamamatsu for eel. We also wanted to visit friends who live in Japan and visit the Ghibli museum.
Becki created a professional itinerary based on our interests.
Our Japanese is rudimentary, so having two fluent companions made our travels exceptionally easy. They handled all train and bus reservations, hotel reservations, and restaurant reservations. This took a huge burden off us, allowing us to enjoy the trip with minimal hassle. Each day they would acquire the necessary train tickets, etc for us, so we able to travel efficiently without struggling.
Since Becki and Shawn both lived and worked throughout Japan for years, they have an excellent knowledge of interesting places to go and things to do. For instance, they set up a stay at an amazing ryokan at the foot of Mount Fuji. They really went the extra mile to obtain difficult reservations for us and insure we had a exceptional time. And they are both excellent company! We had great fun with them.
One particularly special experience they set up was a home dinner with a Japanese family. This is a program run by the Japanese government to promote cultural harmony with foreign visitors.
Japan and More provided us with a very personal trip to Japan that I have not experienced with other ‘tours’.
Frankly, they really go beyond providing a ‘tour’, and allowed us insights into another culture we likely would never have experienced if we were simply ‘tourists’.”
