Hi there!! I am an English speaking tour guide based in Utsunomiya city near Nikko. Since I came back from Auckland, New Zealand I started my own business as an English Speaking Guide. I have been a guide for 6 years. My favorite things to do these days are 1. visit historical places in Tochigi prefecture, 2. find nice restaurants and bars in Utsunomiya 3. wear hats while I am working outside.

“ 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.

“ 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.

“ 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.
