May to September
After arriving at JR Utsunomiya station, your guide will take you to Nikko National Park and World Heritage Site. On the way to Nikko, we'll pass through an avenue lined with Japanese cedars. This avenue is recorded as the longest tree lined avenue in the Guinness Book of World Records. We will see Yunoko Lake in Yumoto area and also enjoy "Ashiyu" or foot bathing. We'll visit the Yutaki Waterfall, the Ryuzu Waterfall, and the Kegon Waterfall. Around Chuzenji Lake, we'll spend some time at the Italian Embassy Villa memorial park. Lunch will be at Chuzenji Lake or Sannai area. Our last visit will be the Toshogu-Shrine.
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 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 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 was great guide, knowledgeable and fun to be with for our day in Nikko
Jack-san was an excellent guide on our tour of Nikko. He worked with us to shape the tour to meet the requirements of our large group, and brought us to places we had not been before. We are a well-informed group, and Jack's extensive historical and cultural knowledge contributed to a pleasurable exploration of the shrines and imperial villa. We really enjoyed ourselves. We recommend Jack the tour guide wholeheartedly.
This tour is the most valuable guided tour in Nikko. I will meet you at JR Utsunomiya station and we'll go to JR Nikko on the Nikko Line.
