“ Superb guide ”

We had a spare day in Tokyo and found your site and booked for the next day. We had a great day touring Nikko. Jack will go at your pace.. we wanted a relaxed day. His insights into Japanese culture are excellent. A memorable day. Thank you ever so much Jack. Matt Helga and Steve from Sydney.

Jack:
Thank you Matt, Helga and Steve. I had a lovely day with you all. Nikko offers both nature and man made beauty. You told me you wanted a relaxed day so I didn't take a lot of places you must see in Nikko. There are a lot of nice places to see in Japan but Nikko is one of the best. Thank you for your business.

“ Amazing tour guide ”

I cannot say enough good things about our tour with Jack to see Nikko. He met us and drove us up to Lake Chuzengi and to see 3 beautiful and different waterfalls. Then we had a lovely lunch at a local restaurant and went on to see the Bakejizo, Tamozawa Imperial Villa, Toshogu Shrine and Taiyuin Temple. His historical knowledge is excellent, as is his English. We had a great day and I would recommend his tour to everyone.

Jack:
Hi Alex, It has been passed neary 4 weeks since we met. I have been busy in April but I love to meet nice people such as your family. I am glad to hear you enjoyed my tour. Thank you. Jack

“ Great tour of Nikko! ”

Jack was fantastic! Our trip encountered a few weather challenges with some unexpected snow to start the tour. Jack didn't miss a step but made some quick adjustments on the fly! We still got to see everything we expected just with a few tweaks. Jack was very informative and presented the information and history in a way that engaged our kids 13 & 10 perfectly. We would recommend Jack for a Nikko tour for anyone looking to see the beautiful sights Nikko has to offer.

Jack:
Tim, thank you so much for your nice words. Hope your rest of your trip be a memorable one! Jack

“ Personable and Knowledgeable Guide to Nikko and surrounding area ”

Jack is very knowledgeable about the history behind the shrines and mausoleums at Nikko. He related this history and information about Nikko and the area in a wonderfully organized and memorable way. He was also very flexible about changing the set itinerary, so we could see the beautiful Kegon Falls and the mountainous area near Nikko as well as the Taiyuin and Toshogu Shrine. He also took us to a great place for lunch--more of a local restaurant than a tourist hangout. He added immensely to our understanding and enjoyment of Nikko and the surrounding area. Jack is also very personable. It was a pleasure and a privilege to spend the day with Jack.

Jack:
Hi Elizabeth, Thank you so much for your nice words to my tour.
