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.

“ Very passionate and knowledgeable guide ”

Very Good
6 days ago Traveler: Derin -   Tour Guide: 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...

There basically aren’t words that I could use to describe how incredibly happy we were that we booked Yoko! We had three days in Mt. 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...

“ Great time in Tokyo and Custom Nikko Tour ”

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...
