Northern Tohoku and Western Hokkaido Mini Tour
October 7, 2018 - November 30, -0001
We are now with a second tour in Japan. What a difference! The second tour gives tells us little about the history and modern development of Japan but we certainly have not missed any junky souvenir shop in this part of Japan.
Excellent intro to old Japan
Great mix of modern and ancient inns
Sumptuous feasts in the old inns
I can not give enough praise for Chiwako. She went out of her way to make our visit perfect. When Sumarai Tours failed to order Gran Class train tickets that we and the Colton’s had paid for, Chiwako personally paid the difference to upgrade us to Gran Class anticipating that she would get reimbursed. My wife and I tried to give Chiwako a tip for her outstanding care but she graciously refused saying that she did not accept tips.
Pre-Tour Handbook
Very much enjoyed reading the lengthy history of Japan. Not too little, not too much.
