Travellers' voices

"I found a side of Japan that I could not have found myself."
Federico, Italy
"Wonderful route ― even the hotel and transportation were reserved. I could travel conveniently and efficiently."
Nina, Germany
"Other countries don't offer hospitality like Japan's post offices. It was awesome!"
Atro, Finland


The first stop of our itinerary was Nikko, a world heritage city located in Tochigi prefecture. We arrived in Nikko around 11:30 pm, with a train full of tourists coming from all over the world.

we soon started looking to something to eat. We found a good ramen restaurant, which had really good reviews and it wasn't expensive, and above all, was really close to the main attractions.
