Frequently Asked Questions

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

Starting and ending points of the tour.

After you secure your booking, the starting and ending points of your tour can be customized to your convenience (ex.: your hotel, nearby stations, etc.). Don't worry, we will take care of you! Some tours may have an extra fee for this service, make sure to check the tour page.

What happens after I book a tour?

After booking a tour, the guide will accept (or decline) your booking within 24 hours. Then you will be noticed by email from Triplelights.

Can the guide pickup me at the airport?

Yes, but there will be additional charge for that and it is not by car. The guide will go pick you up using public transportations. For further details, please contact your guide directly.

I'm travelling alone. Can I book this tour?

Yes, you can and you may be able to get a discount if you are traveling alone. Price depends on which guide you choose.

Hi, I'm Kazue (car-zoo-A). Thanks so much for viewing my profile!

I'm a native eastern Japanese, born in Kawaguchi City, Saitama (just north to Tokyo) and spent most of my student and working time in central Tokyo. So I'm able to show you attractions in and around Tokyo, especially the places loved by locals.

Tokyo is diverse - there are not only skyscrapers but also tranquil shrines and temples, real local "shitamachi" areas, and even mountains, vegetables fields... and I would like to help you enjoy these various aspects of Tokyo in your own style!

Personally I love Japanese food (especially miso soup and dessert "wagashi" like mochi), playing shamisen (a traditional Japanese musical instrument with three strings) and growing plants, which means I'm especially suitable for those who love mochi / kabuki / bonsai ;)

I'm looking forward to meeting you in Japan :)

I can create a customised tour expecially for you! Please feel free to send me a message and tell me what you would like to do in Japan. read more
