A Recent Review of this tour

We really enjoyed this tour. It is very educational and interesting. Mr. Akira is so knowledgeable about Japanese history of trains and was an enthusiastic guide. He was also very flexible and able to get us on the bullet train going back to Tokyo. It was a very enjoyable tour. Highly recommended!!
