Don’t just take our word for it – some recent comments from Shumi Stay Japan customers:

 

We have just returned from Japan. It was the most wonderful trip. With the organisation of Phil and the guidance of Kazuko, we saw more of the real Japan than one could hope for.
We told them of our interests, and what we would like to do and see, and we were not disappointed.
Spinning, weaving, dyeing and paper making under the tutorship of masters of their craft, were some of the things we did. They even found a wagyu beef farmer for us to talk to.
They introduced us to the culinary delights of the country. We experienced the real Japan.
Thank you to you both for our wonderful holiday.

We would like to thank you both for a fantastic holiday.  Thankfully we had your meticulous planning, Phil, to assist us in our wandering and also the local knowledge that both of you gave to us. The walking and sites we saw were magnificent. A beautiful part of the country which we would not have seen without your knowledge and planning.   Again thank you  – a truly wonderful Shumi stay.

Trekking in Japan’s more remote areas can be made easier with the help of Phil and Kazuko at ShumiStayJapan. The Salt Road trek from Itoigawa to Omachi then across the Kurobe Alpine Route down to Toyama over 8 days was researched by ShumiStay and a plan of daily walks suggested with maps and accommodation booked. Everything, including the weather, worked perfectly. I will go back to ShumiStayJapan when planning my next trip.”

Taking my hobby on a holiday to Japan with Phil and Kazuko is a rewarding and enjoyable way to do what I enjoy most in a fascinating country with good food and hospitable people.

 I have always enjoyed doing things in Japan with Phil and Kazuko who have a deep understanding of the ‘real’ Japan and a keen appreciation of Japanese people and their customs. They are attentive hosts who know how to make sure their guests  come away feeling that they have had a truly unique and an enriching experience.

We went to Japan not knowing what to expect, but we were blown away by how  friendly the people were and how good the service is.

We will never forget our  wonderful stay in Japan with Phil and Kazuko
