PRICE: This was a great deal compared to what I found through regular Japanese travel agencies (even the parent company JTB could not match anywhere near this package price.). ADMIN: Collecting tickets was a bit of a pain as we could not ship the tickets to a residential address (only hotel addresses). Only 1 collection point in Tokyo at Tokyo Station was out of the way.TRAVEL: Shikansen was excellent as always! HOTEL: Good quality hotel in a convenient location. Shuttle bus from the station which wasn't stated on the itinerary but well worth finding. Wished price included breakfast at least!
It was great! We got perfect time for the Shinkansen Tickets so we could enjoy and maximize our time in Kyoto.The hotel Karasuma was also nice and surprisingly spacious for Japan.The only negative is that they sent my tickets to Tokyo Station. I live in Tokyo and it would've been a lot easier to just get them at home, but that option was never clear.

The location of this hotel is very good as well as the service at the reception area. The room was very clean and worked well for the short time we spent in it. The bathroom is quite small and sound carries easily between rooms but I would stay here again.

Extremely happy with everything, from delivery of the tickets to our hotel, to the can’t wait to do it again next year.

Best decision I've made! Easy set up, just make sure you have the address to your hotel or air bnb correct and a japanese phone number. My brother lives in koshigaya and we did not have a japanese phone number to give but with one call we told them we would be at his place the day they were going to send it and sure enough they arrived on time with our tickets for the shinkansen! Cheap, reliable, easy and fun! Ps I'm not a bot just saying this to give this company better reviews I am an actual person

Amazing trip! Confirmation and tickets delivered right to our hotel in Tokyo 2 days prior to departure. Easy instructions and travel. Hotel Karasuma was beautiful and centrally located. Thank you!
The tickets were delivered to our designated hotel on time (at least 1 day before departure). The departure times were fair from both destinations. The lodging was great, very contemporary, clean, and the staff was helpful (English was good).

Good hotel, clean, modern room furniture, centrally located, great Shinkansen connection. Staff were courteous and spoke English well.

Well organized, ticket delivered on time to our first address airbnb. Trains scheduling was great on Tokyo to Kyoto leg but ok the other way around (I wished there was a later in a day train and not around noon - we loved Kyoto and wanted to spend as much time there as possible). Hotel accomodiation and staff was for 5.0+ rating.

War ein schöner Kyoto Trip von Tokyo aus. Die Tickets und auch der Shinkansen kamen pünktlich. :-) Das Hotel war mitten in der City und sehr nah zur Einkaufsstrasse und zur nächsten Bushaltestelle. Frühstück hatten wir keins., Es gab einen Starbucks unter dem Hotel oder anedere kleine Cafes in der Nähe. Zu dem Preis kann ich den Trip nur empfehlen.
