Overall, the service from Wakako and the itinerary which she provided were excellent, including the private guides. The prices paid for the ryokan accommodations though were high, they were in-line with the level of value we received. The only hotel which we felt indifference was the Sheraton Grande in Miyazaki, which was a typical large conference center style facility with very high prices for all services and food, which were of only quality.

And additional note: the mountain roads which we drove on between Kurokawa Onsen and Kagoshima were scenic and extremely curvy and steep. Though we had snow chains ready for our tires, we felt fortunate that there was no snow on the ground since I am not sure that they would have been very useful if there was much snow on the steep, curvy road surfaces. So you should caution future customers who want to self-drive to those places during the snowy months of January-February.
