Can we discuss where to go in advance?
Sure! Please feel free to send me a message and I will suggest ideas depending on your interests.
What can we expect besides cultural heritages in Nikko?
There are beautiful architectures such as Tamozawa Imperial Villa and Nikko Kanaya Hotel. Kanmangafuchi abyss, with a line of jizo statues is also getting attention these days. If you like cultural things, experiences such as kimono wearing, wood carving and hot spring are available (better to check the vacancy in advance, please ask for details).
What do we have for lunch?
I will take you to the place of your choice. For example, Nikko is famous for "yuba" (soy milk skin) and "soba" (buckwheat noodle), and they are worth trying. If you prefer Western meals, there are also nice steak houses and bakeries.
Does this tour cover Oku-Nikko area (around Lake Chuzenji)?
No. It takes at least 40min from Nikko to Oku-Nikko. There's lots to see and do only in Nikko area and most of my guests feel they would need more time. If you would like to go to Oku-Nikko, I would suggest 2 day tour. For details, please ask.
Can I make changes after I book?
Yes! If you need to make changes such as removing or adding someone to your booking or changing the date or time of your tour, contact us by phone or email
