What a wonderful Autumn Leaves tour we had. Great places, guides, hot tubs and food. Journey to the East thought of everything. It took the pressure off travelling to Japan.

This is my second tour to Japan with Journey to the East. It really is a specialist tour company, taking the ‘stress out’ of a foreign country travel – Delightful holiday.

We loved our trip with JttE. we were cared for and travelled in a country where the language and culture was completely foreign to us – Jtte made  it very enjoyable and very easy. The planning, choice of hotels, itinerary, travel arrangements, guides and meals were all excellent and we will be only too happy to recommend JttE to anyone wishing to visit Japan.

Wild west tour was wonderful. a lot of thoughts put into seeing so much diversity – from busy Tokyo to Walking in Snow, cooking fish in open fire in centre of the room to magnificent gardens. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

This has been a fabulous and well designed and delivered tour. We were offered such a range of interesting and very unique experiences. One tour managed to immerse us in Japanese culture, food, gardens, innovation and daily life. The organisation was perfect and the guides friendly and warm. We would highly recommend Journey to the East.
