Nikko (Nov. 6, 2020)

 I went to see the red leaves to Nikko.  Taiyuin Temple is one of my favorite spots there.

As Nikko has the mausoleums of the Shoguns who made Tokyo great, many elementary schools visit there as school excursions.
I also visit Nikko when I was in the 5th grade.
   It also has the first cottage inn for Westerners in Japan, which started in 1873.  It is a very lovely place, so I wish I could visit there with you in the future.

Yoko was very knowledgeable and very patient with my youngest who complained all day about walking. She took us to soo many different sights and taught us about why the Japanese do what they do and showed us how to cleanse ourselves before entering a temple. Sometimes she did walk super fast ahead of us and would be talking so we couldn’t hear but she was overall amazing.

Very friendly and good navigator. I liked her knowledge of current Japanese pop culture and never made me feel stupid for asking questions. She had lots of little tidbits that were helpful, like the story of the 7 thieves. She did seem somewhat flustered by our American habits, I hope she forgives us. She also had to be prompted with questions rather than volunteering the info, perhaps this is cul...

“ The Best Part of Tokyo is Nikko ”

Excellent
1 year ago Traveler: Alex -   Tour Guide: Yoko

Let me start by saying Yoko speaks English well with little to no accent which is a huge plus in a guide. She is knowledgeable in Japanese history. We spent an entire day with her and she introduced us to the amazing sites at Nikko. If you want to experience Japanese history (2hr trip from Tokyo) a visit to Nikko is a must and you can not go wrong with Yoko.
