- I would recommend this tour, and particularly any Japan tour with Mark as tour leader; his knowledge and enthusiasm were second to none. We particularly enjoyed the chance to try different Japanese culinary styles with Mark. The "sevens" for accommodation reflect the (typical) small hotel rooms at some locations (eg Nagano) and the original scheduling of the visit to Otaru the day after the lantern festival there had ended. Fortunately, Mark was able to rearrange our schedule to accommodate a visit on the last day of the festival.
