Nikko: There is no Shinkansen stop in NikkoSome people think that JR Passes cover their way to Nikko.
Well, you can use the Shinkansen to JR Utsunomiya for an hour and change to local line and have a 45 minute ride, but other ways are more convenient.

Fuji and needed to book a guide super last minute (like within 12 hours). Yoko was incredibly prompt responding and the communication was super easy. She took the train all the way in from Tokyo to meet us and had the whole day well organized and planned out. First o...

My family and I found Yoko on TripleLights and the first thing that attracted us to her was that she said she had lived in the USA from age 3-9. I knew that it would be easy to communicate with her and for our kids to understand her explanations of the places we were planning to visit. I gave Yoko places that I had wanted to visit ahead of time and she balanced out both days with culturally stim...

I had a fantastic time with Yoko! On Day 1 I joined her for a tour of the Imperial Gardens. She was prompt and even found a vegan ramen restaurant to take me to so I could enjoy ramen as a vegetarian. Her knowledge of the city and the sites was impressive, and at the end of the day, on my request, she found a beautiful fan shop to take me to for souvenir shopping. The second day was a spectacul...

As we embarked on our first journey to Japan, and Tokyo being our first stop, we are very happy to have met Ms. Yoko and have her as our guide. Yoko was very thorough, as she went through every destinations on our list to gauge the required time for each place. On our tour day, she brought a blanket for us to use, in case we wanted to have a picnic lunch. Yoko's English is very fluent, and her k...
