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.

“ Shimizu Port Tour 2 ”

I gave Shoji quite an ambitious list of sights that roughly followed his Shimizu Tour #2. In order to try and get us everywhere, he came to pick us up at the cruise terminal 20 minutes early in case we could debark early, which we were able to do. All during the day he made sure we were comfortable and happy. He arranged all kinds of little side trips and experiences once he discovered that we were interested in doing things off the beaten path. He is an excellent and experienced guide. I and my friends are well travelled and generally hire guides and private cars wherever we go. Shoji is one of a kind. You will not he disappointed if you hire him!! I wish I could have taken him with us as we continued our travels in Japan.

“ 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).


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.


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!


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.
