Who's going on the April or May trips to Japan ?

Postby annefleur » Sun Mar 18, 2012 9:59 pm

Hi,

I'm going on a Gap trip to Japan in April or May , and have to decide very soon which one to take.
I'm considering :

1. Japan Express - Osaka to Tokyo : 16 April departure
2. Discover Japan - Tokyo to Tokyo : 7 May departure
òr
3. Ancient Empires - Beijing to Tokyo : 21 April departure
Beijing to Tokyo

I'm 25 and would like to know how many people my age (21-29) have booked already, as I'd like to travel with at least 5 people my own age.
And what do the travellers who already took one of these tours feel about their trip?

Thanks a lot for your reactions !

Hi there!

I've recently booked a spot on option number 1, the Osaka->Tokyo tour departing 16 April.
I'm 23 years old and Dutch (as I suspect you are as well, judging by your name;)).
I do not really know much about the other travelers on this tour, but perhaps they will post here as well soon!

As this is my first tour with GAP I also can't give you any experiences with previous tours. In choosing this trip I was doubting between the China->Japan and Japan Express tours as well, though - the main reason I chose this one is because I would rather stay an extra week in Japan and go wherever I'd like, then do China 'properly' some other trip - the Ancient Empires tour seemed a bit 'rushed' considering the amount of places you go in such a small timespan.
To be fair, though, I have no clue if this is accurate, so take it with a grain of salt - just my impression from reading the itineraries.

I hope you can make a choice soon and have a good trip!

Hello,
I am planning to do the May 7 Discover Japan trip. I was wondering if the OP had decided which trip they were taking or how taniguchi found the other people going on his trip? Thanks!
