My husband, Jack, and I took a terrific, 14-night, small-group tour of Japan with Inside Japan Tours (Lewins House, Lewins Mead, Bristol, BS1 2NN, UK; phone ++44 117 314 4620), Oct. 2-16, 2009. The tour was reasonably priced at $3,820 each, not including air.

Using public transportation throughout, we started our tour in Tokyo and ended in Kyoto, traveling to several spots on the island of Miyajima. We stayed in comfortable business hotels and wonderful ryokans (traditional Japanese inns).

The enthusiasm of our tour leader, Liam Chawdhary, for Japanese food and culture was infectious.

We enjoyed the independent nature of this tour, where we could choose to follow our own interests and yet benefit from the convenience of preset travel arrangements and the expertise of a tour leader. We’ve traveled to about 40 countries, and this was one of our best trips. Highly recommended!

I will take questions; e-mail me through ITN.
