Visiting Toshogu shrine and RInnnoji temple, the World Heritage. Magnificent and solemn architectures and carvings of the shrine and the temple will move you deeply for sure.

What to Expect

We visit World Heritage site in Nikko. Toshogu, the main facility of the World Heritage is a Shinto shrine established in 1617 to enshrine Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Edo Shogunate that ruled Japan for over 260 years until 1868. Rinnoji Temple used to integrate the temples and shrines in Nikko including Toshogu Shrine until the Meiji Restriction in the late 19th century, when shrines and temples in Japan were forced to be separated by laws. You will not only be moved by the magnificent and solemn architectures and carvings but also can explore the history of Nikko and learn the syncretism of Shintoism and Buddhism, which has been strongly influencing our lives in Japan.

“ Tokyo Tour ”

We took a 1day tour of Tokyo withShoji. He showed us 6 of the most popular sites. He was very well informed and gave us a very detailed account of the history of each location. Shogi was very pleasant and most accommodating and made our tour of Tokyo very memorable. We would highly recommend him Don &Mary. Canada


Thank you, Don & Mary for joining my Tokyo one-day tour. I had really a pleasant time with you on such a fine day. I am very grateful for your kind words encouraging me greatly. I hope you will come again to Japan some day soon. Shoji

“ Excellent Day with Shoju ”

Shoji was our guide to Nikko, the trip was well planned with reservations set for a local restaurant, his knowledge of the area was incredible, the shrines were out of this world beautiful, and his added knowledge took the visit over the top. Shoji has alternate plans in case we took too long at the Shrines, which were necessary due to our lengthy stay. Shoji’s English was good, he was well organized, anticipated deviations from the iteniary with alternate plans, posssessed intiment knowledge of the area, and ensured we got back to our hotel. Shoji is an incredible ambassador for Japan and Nikko.


Hi Ralph, I am very glad your family enjoyed Nikko. I greatly appreciate your rating and heartwarming words. They are more honor than I deserve.
