Your review Incredible! Japan is an amazing holiday destination - the people are exceptionally hospitable and friendly and I can't wait to return!

The food is excellent (my wife is vegetarian and if you research a little in advance there are plenty of good choices too).

Culturally fantastic with so many breathtaking shrines/temples all with easy access/English friendly tourist centres dotted all over the country.

JR shinkansen and other trains - are remarkably efficient - easy to change train tickets (Tip: also allows you to use the Hiroshima-sightseeing bus for free and JR run ferry from Hiroshima port-Miyajima)

Tokyo - metropolis - good for shopping (tax refunds at point of sale in many dept/electrical stores-considerably cheaper than UK).
Hakone/Mt Fuji - wonderful ryokan experience at Gora Kadan (very expensive but private hot spring/beautiful scenery highly recommended)
Takayama - nice small town, great temples and countryside break from cities
Hiroshima/Miyajima - historically incredible and fantastic okonomiyaki everywhere (especially inside Asse Mall on 2nd floor inside train station!)
Kyoto - incredible temples/shrines around every corner; Favourites - Fushimi Inari Shrine, Arashiyama bamboo forest and Kiyomizu-dera temple!

If you are considering a trip to Japan - the Japan Travel Centre should be your first port of call - Jing and the rest of the staff are wonderfully helpful and accommodating offering exceptional service! Thank you!
