Your review My visit to Japan was an incredible experience I hope to repeat soon.

It's almost impossible to name one aspect that made the trip so special but rather it was a combination of many things: the wonderfully warm and polite people, incredible sushi from the stalls at Tsukiji, the sheer visual overload of areas like Akihabara, Shinjuku and Shibuya - particularly at night and by contrast the calm, peaceful atmosphere around the shrines at Nikko.

I came away with so many wonderful memories, but only feel like I barely scratched the surface of what Japan has to offer, therefore I'm sure I'll be returning before long.

The Rail Pass was invaluable, I'd recommend it as an essential purchase for anyone wishing to see more of Japan than just Tokyo.

Best bits:
• Sushi at Tskiji
• The 'Bladerunner' feel of Tokyo on a rainy night
• Eating Yakatori at the tiny stalls under Shinjuku train tracks
• Wandering around Nikko at dusk when everyone had left
• Visiting Hiroshima Peace Park and museum, incredibly moving
• Walking up Fushimi Inari-taisha

Your review We had a fantastic time in Japan. Everyone was incredibly friendly - about four or five times when standing looking at a map we were approached by passers' by to see if we needed help.

The maps can be a bit confusing as the street markings aren't very clear but we managed very easily on the subway. If you're going to use your Japan Rail Pass to travel back to the airport as we did it's worth noting that it's free on the JR pass AS LONG AS YOU RESERVE A SEAT. Otherwise you could be charged. We hadn't realised this until we tried to board the train. We popped back to the ticket hall and reserved a seat on the next train immediately but it could've been tricky had the train been busier.

Strangely some public bathrooms didn't have soap or paper to dry your hands so it's worth taking some hand wipes with you for that purpose.

Overall, the food, service and people were all amazing. It's worth taking a trip out of Tokyo to see a less hectic side to the country. There's so much more we could've seen and we really packed it all in. Don't always stick to the guidebooks - make sure you wander down the odd side-street as you often find interesting food stalls and shops that are off the beaten path.

Your review We really enjoyed our trip to Japan - great hospitality, food and sites to visit. Would highly recommending staying in a traditional guest house - we stayed in one in Kyoto and had a great Japanese experience. A visit to Koya-san with an overnight stay in a monastery guest house is highly recommended.
