Thought you should know that we have now been and come home. We had a great time in Japan and everything that you had booked was great.
Just wanted to let you know about the hotels if you have any other families looking to stay in 1 room.
New Miyako Hotel, Kyoto – Triple room was great the beds are nearly an Australian Double so plenty of room
Hakone Hotel – Triple room was big – 3rd bed was a sofa bed but other beds were nearly Australian Double beds as well, the location of this hotel is fantastic on Lake Ashi but the rooms are well used and could do with a refurbishment and a good clean but for 1 night and the fantastic views of Mt Fuji – well worth it.
Ghibli Museum – If we hadn’t been to Disneyland & Universal Studios in LA, we probably would have been very impressed with this, but we had and most of the information is in Japanese which makes it very hard to understand what it is all about. Although getting there & back was a real adventure!
Tokyo Morning Tour was very helpful in giving us a layout of tokyo and the guide was very helpful with directions and advise for the trains, etc.
Once again, thank you for all your help in organising our holiday to Japan, it has changed so much since I was there 20 years ago. Very easy to travel around yourself as just about everything is in English and everyone was very helpful if we needed directions.
