  • I travelled to Japan in April this year with Japan Specialist and found them excellent. Compared with other travel agents I have used before, they were very knowledgeable, helpful, patient and flexible. With their help I could plan exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much for making my trip to Japan so enjoyable & memorable. Without doubt I will use them again when I travel to Japan. - Tomoko Ward

  • I regularly fly to Japan to see as much of Japan as possible. That is where I have found Japan Specialist Travel very helpful because of their comprehensive knowledge of Japanese hotels, airlines and train services and just as important, the geography of the country. It does not seem to matter whether you want to see a major tourist attraction or a small town. They are able to book suitable accommodation to suit your needs. Japan Specialist has proved very helpful in providing information on essential issues and this is advice not always to be found in travel guides. Japan Specialist Travel meets my needs in journeys to Japan and I feel confident that past and present clients are likely to agree with me. - John Waters, Canberra

  • Thank you from the Gray family, who visited many places in Japan in October. Thanks to your meticulous attention to detail we confidently travelled the country and had a wonderful time. Our daughter was captivated by Japan. We will be sure to recommend your services to anyone planning a Japan visit. - Bernadette Gray

  • Kathy and I wish to thank you for arranging an excellent self-guided tour of Japan. The itinerary and scheduling you engineered for us ran like a well-oiled clock. On two separate occasions we met with Japanese American families - visiting Japan - they expressed amazement at what we were doing, when shown the plan, they said only Japanese would visit the places you suggested, generally not foreign tourists and how fortunate we are to have a travel agent package up such a tour, we agreed. Dare we suggest that you would be safe in packaging and promoting self-guided tours such as this to individuals - who have moderate travel experience. Again, thanks for devoting your time and skills in developing a plan that made it an enjoyable holiday. - Kathy and Terry Nanscawen

  • Alan organised our family Japan trip - 7 people to 8 different destinations over 3 weeks. He was amazing, with everything done to the finest detail, including maps, directions, train timetables, hotel bookings and so on. Somehow he also managed the budget so that we stayed in exactly the kind of places we would have chosen, and I was delighted with final cost, which was what I had expected to pay if I had done all the organising myself. He knows the country, and he knows some great tips of where to stay and where to go, so if you're planning a trip, I would highly recommend asking Alan to organise it for you. We will certainly be using him for our next trip!

  • Hi Alan, Enid and I returned yesterday after a really wonderful trip which you organised for us. Everything went so smoothly because of your detailed itinerary and the hotels were just right for us. We so enjoyed the train travel and saw some really interesting parts of the island which most others in our group in Hokkaido would have missed out on. Thanks again for your efforts for us; Enid is determined to take you out to lunch at some stage! We'll be in touch in the next few weeks to see if this fits in for you. Thanks again- Margaret

  • Hello Alan, Just to let you know that Gloria and I arrived home early this morning (Wednesday) after what was easily our best holiday experience ever. Every aspect of the trip ... JAL, Japanese Hotels, guides and drivers ... all far exceeded our expectations and of course the magnificent beauty of the country and its people can not be overstated. Your interpretation of our wishes and Mr Nakahara's execution of same was faultless and we thank both of you that.
