It s been a lifelong dream of my dad s to visit the motherland and 2014 marked the year we finally took the plunge and decided to book a trip to Japan. But where to start?
We knew we didn t want to be shuffled around like cattle on a tour bus with a large group achi-kochi all over Japan, but at the same time, we weren t comfortable with having to contact hotels in Japan and set up the accommodations ourselves. So, with a brief search on the Internet, we found Destination Japan, which brought us to HIS.
Booked hotels, 7-day JR Rail Pass and a helpful itinerary not enough? Well, toss in a couple half-day tours (Kyoto Tokyo), an all-day Hakone Pass, 10 days (well, 13 for us) straight of breakfast buffets included and transportation to and from Narita Airport. Still not enough? Well. don t be greedy. Haha.
Seriously, this two-week jaunt through Japan was indeed the trip of a lifetime, and much thanks to HIS for making it possible and far less of a headache than it could have been. Thanks, Mike! And thanks HIS! I can t wait to return!
