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.

“ Kamakura 1 Day Trip ”

Very Good
4 days ago Traveler: Amanda -   Tour Guide: Yoko

My friend and I wanted to do some sightseeing outside of Tokyo during the last couple of days of our trip. After consulting with Yoko, we selected a day trip to Kamakura as Nikko would be too busy during the Kouyo (leaf changing) season. Neither of us had visited Kamakura before, so we were hoping to see some places that we couldn’t see by researching the city online prior to our visit. Yoko-...

Spent 1.5 superb days with Yoko getting to know Tokyo. Yoko demonstrated incredible service way before I arrived in Tokyo. She provided a lot of useful information on arriving, hotels and planning my trip beyond Tokyo. Upon arrival in Tokyo, Yoko met me promptly at the hotel and took me on the whirlwind tour of Tokyo with a detailed tour the next day. Yoko is very passionate about Tokyo and this...

“ Great day in Tokyo! ”

I had a wonderful first full day because Yoko made everything less daunting. I highly recommend her as a private guide as she is fluent in English and knows how to balance visits to culturally enriching sites as well as commercial areas. I would advise everyone to be ready to walk a lot if you want to make the most of this tour.

We spent a day with Yoko who took us to see the highlights of Tokyo we did not have in the tour we had booked. Yoko navigated the subways system which we would of had difficulty with on our own the first time. Yoko took us to see the Imperial Palace, the Ginza area, Tokyo station and Tokyo Skytree. We visited the Nissen crossing and seen some beautiful cars of the future. Yoko was very informative...

Myself and my sister were quite nervous coming to Japan, but Yoko was very helpful and showed us around the Tokyo area. We explored temples, shrines, the Metropolitan area, Tsukiji, and the intricate subways! I was confused on how to use the subway system, but she was very patient and helped us understand what we needed to look for. I would highly recommend planning a trip with Yoko, she is very k...

Hire Yoko! You can't go wrong! Since it was our first time in Japan, I thought it would be helpful to have a guide show us around so we wouldn't waste time trying to figure out the subway, etc...Yoko wrote to me beforehand and wanted to know who was touring and what we wanted to see. I told her we were staying on the East side of town and wanted to see as much as possible on the East side. We nar...
