Overview

Nikko, which has been acknowledged as World Heritage in 1999, has temples and shrines with awesome sculptures.

We will ride a Tobu express train for approximately two hours from the east side of Tokyo area to visit there and take time to appreciate them.

You can enjoy Yuba (tofu skin), which is one of the local specialities, buckwheat noodles or curry and rice etc. as lunch.

What to Expect

We will visit the temples and shrines in Nikko. The sculptures are awesome.

Please take your time as you can take pictures as much as you can at the places allowed.

Important

We will walk a lot, so please wear walking shoes like sneakers.
There is no way of avoiding stairs. The World Heritage is not at all barrier free.

Nikko is much colder than Tokyo, and we will be outdoors for quite a long time, so please prepare things to keep you warm.

The temples and shrines close at 17:00 from April 1.

Basically, there is only one Tobu Express for Nikko every hour, so I hope you will be punctual with the meeting time.

If you don't walk so much and you don't want to visit all the spots in the highlights, please feel free to send a message.
I will arrange the itinerary based on your requests.

“ Ashikaga Flower Park ”

Yoko was so helpful with train transfers to/from Ashikaga Flower Park given my mother uses a wheelchair. Flower park was absolutely beautiful even with an overcast sky.
