“The trip seems expensive, but is actually quite good value as so much is included - travel, entry to museums etc.

We loved the way the route was based on the James Clavell book, Shogun. One of the scrolls in the Hirado museum tracked it exactly. And it was perfect ending with a view of the tombstone of William Adams, the Navigator the story is based on.”
