Hiking along the coast line of Lake Chuzenji or in Senjogahara wetland which is registered under the Ramsar Convention as “Oku-Nikko-shitsugen” (the wetland in Highland Nikko) and cruising in the lake.

What to Expect

We enjoy hiking along the coast line of Lake Chuzenji or in Senjogahara wetland which is registered under the Ramsar Convention as “Oku-Nikko-shitsugen” (the wetland in Highland Nikko) and cruising in the lake. Spring (May to Jun) and Autumn (Sept. to Oct.) are good seasons for this tour. In Spring, you can enjoy a variety of flowers and fresh young leaves. In Autumn, you should be fascinated by autumn leaves as well as schools of red-colored kokanee salmon coming up into a stream from the lake for spawning.
From Nikko station, we take a bus to Oku-Nikko, or Highland Nikko, after lunch we hike along the coast of Lake Chuzenji or in Senjogahara wetland, and cruise in the lake.

Important

In October (autumn leaves season), tours only on weekdays are available. Because extremely heavy traffic jam occurs on weekends (Sat. Sun.) in this season.
The hiking course is not fixed but flexible, depending on the conditions. Let us discuss the course beforehand, taking the season, your request, your physical condition, etc. into account.
In case of bad weather, we will visit Italian Embassy Villa Memorial Park, Nikko Nature Museum, Fish and Forest Bio-Park, etc. instead of hiking.
You can choose our meeting place, at your hotel or Tobu Nikko station. In case of meeting at your hotel, we will meet at 7:00 am and head for Nikko together by train. If you choose Tobu Nikko station for our meeting place, you need to come to the station by yourself by 10:00 am. read more

“ Discovering new places in Tokyo ”

After doing the main sightseeing during previous days, we have asked Shoji to take us through new places. He was very helpful in customizing the tour for us. We were delighted and surprised by what seen (esp. Hamarikyu Gardens).

Shoji:

Thank you for your kind words, Fabio. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I look forward to seeing you again someday in Japan.

“ Best Tour Guide in Tokyo! ”

I hired Shoji to tour my son around Tokyo as I attended business meetings with my client. I speak for my son, 'Shoji was the best tour guide ever' and our family has had many tour guides! Shoji gave so much of his time and energy for my son and he was genuinely helpful - the tour even went over an extra 1.5 hours than scheduled! When we return next year, no doubt, we will gladly request another tour with Shoji.

Shoji:

Thank you Jeffrey for your kind words. They encourage me greatly. I hope I will see you and Spencer again sometime in Japan.

“ Great day our around Tokyo ”

Shoji-san took us around Tokyo to see a number of sites. It was an approximately 6-hour walking tour aided by an occasional Metro ride (we actually had to cut it a little short - we got tired! :) ). It was also our first day in Japan. It was awesome to not worry about how to get around and to have a local guide who explained everything and provided sound cultural and historical perspective on what what we saw. Thank you again for a wonderful tour!

Shoji:

Thank you Igor for joining my Tokyo tour. I had a great time with you and learned a lot from you. I greatly appreciate your kind words in your feedback which really encouraged me. I hope I will see you again sometime in Japan.

“ A Day In Tokyo ”

Shoji was a very kind man. I wish he would have explained things more. I felt like we had to ask him about things to get an answer. Overall a good experience though.

Shoji:

Thanks Ron, for joining my tour and taking your time to provide me with the review. Your critical feedback will help improving my tour. I hope I'll see you again sometime soon in Japan.

“ Wonderful Day in Tokyo! ”

Shoji led us through the streets and subways of Tokyo during the Cherry Blossom season, making sure we saw all the places we had expressed an interest in and more! Highlights were early admittance to the Imperial Gardens and two Shinto Shrines along with the Ueno gardens. Shoji is patient, knowledgeable and allowed us to explore each site while interpreting customs, directions and answering questions. Highly recommend this kind gentleman as your guide.

Shoji:

I greatly appreciate your kind words that encourage me greatly. I hope I will meet again sometime in Japan.
