Great deal!

This was 100% worth it! Our hotels were nice and spacious, and we were given corner, high rooms with astonishing views both times. Hiroshima hotel gives you a day pass for street car, and we took it all the way to Miyajima and it was the highlight of our trip to Japan! Beautiful island, unbelievable views, delicious food, and friendly people. I recommend this package!

Nice cities to visit
Ronald M

Not much to the tour. Only train tickets and hotel rooms. Hotels were very convenient to the train stations but not that great as for amenities or service. Train instruction were easy to follow even for first timers. Lucky our conceriege at our Tokyo hotel helped us map out stuff to do. Lots to see in Kyoto. Loved the monkeys and the bamboo Forrest and shrines. Hiroshima peace park is a must visit place. Very moving.

First off this was 100 worth it . the bullet train alone made the price it worth it let alone the hotels. the hotels were very nice clean and comfortable! the itinerary was at our hotel waiting for us before we even go to the hotel. it included instructions and the tickets and it was all very simple and well put together we couldnt have asked for an easier time ! we enjoyed our time in both cities however if your wanting to see all that the cities have to offer this might not be for you but you do have enough time to plan out what you want to see and enjoy yourself. we had a blast and it really was an amazing deal !

LOVED the ease of having train and accommodation tickets booked for me. We stayed at an airbnb not a hotel so that caused a slight problem with delivery of tickets. We had to pick up our tickets at a location called Tokyo City i near Tokyo station. Not a huge deal but it cost us half a day in traveling via local trains and finding it, then a 50 cab ride back to our airbnb my choice...we were tired. Also, we opted for the later departure between 10:10-noon. I would advise AGAINST this. The timing of when you arrive in Kyoto, plus when you leave for Hiroshima meant that in order to see some of the places we wanted to see we were VERY rushed and had to take a cab...walking was out of the question. There was not any way to make the walk, in some cases 30 minutes to a location, and make it from place to place before it closed for the day.

Excellent value and highly recommended. The hotels in Kyoto and Hiroshima are easily accessed from the Bullet Train Station. Don't forget the Bamboo Forest while in Kyoto. The Golden Temple in Kyoto is a must. Hiroshima is a modern, beautiful city and has a great covered shopping area. You can get a free one day trolley pass at the tourist office at the Hiroshima station. We found it unnecessary as we walked throughout Hiroshima. The Peace Park is a must, however don't miss the actual ground zero one block south of the river. The Aioni Bridge is an interesting point of interest as well. Shukkei-in Park is an excellent point of interest, as it has aliving tree which survived the atomic blast. The Park is now beautiful and peaceful.

Tickets were waiting for me on check-in at Tokyo hotel with very clear instructions on how to get to the right train, which tickets to show when, hotel address etc that I found very helpful. The hotel in Kyoto was so convenient to the train station, modern, clean and spacious room. Hotel in Hiroshima was also very convenient to station, room size small but perfectly fine for an overnight stay. I did not try any of the in-house dining options as there were so many other choices nearby.

Tickets were waiting for us upon arrival to hotel. Highly recommend that you visit Arashiyama the Bamboo Grove, absolutely stunning area. Miyajima Island is a must while you are in Hiroshima, we travelled by the street car which is very easy to use as I'm a novice traveller. Hotels are great too.
