“Our trip to Japan was simply fantastic; the best vacation our family has ever taken. We hit the must-see sights, but also had many off-the-beaten-path and personalized experiences. Brian and Laura made the whole planning process easy and once we were in Japan everything worked even better than we had hoped. We can’t wait to go back and when we do, Ichi-go will be our first call.”

“As a Destination Management Company specializing in luxury travel to Japan, we have known Brian for almost a decade and have always been impressed with his capacity to translate his clients’ expectations into concrete ideas and recommendations. He is one of the most precise yet easy-to-work-with advisors among our U.S. partners. We have spent time with Brian on his many visits to Japan over the years and are delighted to continue working with him at Ichi-go.”

– Eric Demay, Director of Sales, The Real Japan

“Brian has been my go-to Japan planner for a few years now. From my first connection with him, I was impressed – so very easy to speak with and offering immediate clarification and suggestions for my clients. I have now planned trips for more than 30 travelers total with him. He has designed trips, for example, for a 40-ish couple, a retired couple, families of six to 10 members (including young adults) and a mother and teenage daughter – and each itinerary was different. Most importantly, all of my clients have returned and said their trip was absolutely fabulous – and that, of course, makes me look like a star.”
