What to Expect

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.
On the way to Nikko, you will be informed well enough about the area to understand the general history of Nikko.

After arriving at JR Nikko station, we'll take the bus to Shinkyo (sacred bridge), then we'll walk to Rinouji temple (Sambutsudo Hall) which is currently not worth paying the admission fee to look inside due to the renovations taking place.

Passing through Sambutsudo Hall we'll then head for the Toshogu shrine.
We can see the 5 story pagoda, stone torii, famous carving of three monkeys, sleeping cat, Karamon gate, the worship hall, and so on. Unfortunately Yomeimon gate is under also renovation so the gate will be covered up.
Then we'll go to Futarasan shrine and Taiyuin Mausoleum. We'll have a light lunch at Hayashiya noodle and rice bowl restaurant.

After lunch we walk to Kammangafuchi abbey where there are 100 stone images of Jizo which are covered by moss.
Finally we'll walk up the hill and reach Tamozawa Imperial villa memorial park. You can get a feeling of what the imperial family was like.

Then we'll take the bus to JR Nikko station and back to your destination via JR Utsunomiya. I will say goodbye to you there.

I strongly believe you will be satisfied with the contents of this tour. Hope you are good walkers!

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.

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.
