After going on the Manga tour in 2016 we knew we wanted Japan Journeys to help organise our honeymoon this year (2019). We met with James and went through all the places we wanted to see and travel to, included a few days in Seoul, South Korea, on the way home. He was incredibly helpful and also suggested various places we hadn’t thought of travelling to, which turned out to be some of our favourite moments!
The main one of these suggestions to mention was to visit Miyajima Island. This is now hands down my favourite place in Japan and I wouldn’t have had the chance to stay there had it not been for James suggesting it.
Having all the hotels booked for us, travel suggestions, information on baggage transfer and places to see in areas travelled to made for a very stress free honeymoon! Having the app with our itinerary also proved to be a life saver! Small details, such as providing the hotel address in Japanese on our itinerary, really helped make everything smooth.
There were only a few mishaps with suggested trains, but most of these were due to the timetables having recently changed, so unavoidable.
Our visit took us to Osaka, Hiroshima, Miyajima Island, Rabbit Island, Okayama, Kyoto, Nara, Arashiyama, Tokyo, Sendai and Seoul. With Japan Journeys’ help we managed to squeeze so much in to our honeymoon.
Definitely recommend using Japan Journeys if you’re planning to go! Thank you James, Louisa and everyone at Japan Journeys!
