Your review

A wonderful place to visit. Both the old and modern cultures are facinating, the food is incredibly varied and delicious and the Japanese people are very helpful and respectful. It was easy to travel around and the language barrier was rarely an issue. I really recommend getting the green car (first class) rail pass, it was only an extra 50 pounds for a week's pass and you get a lot more room and fewer travellers per carriage, very useful if you have large suitcases. The highlight for me was getting out of the big cities and seeing the beautiful countryside in the Japan Alps area. I am planning my next trip already!
