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.

Is the price per person or per group?

The price is charged per group. Which means that you make a one-time payment for your entire group and the price will not change if it is less or more people.

Can I add more people to my booking?

Some guides accept extra people (more than the specified number) for an extra charge. Please check for the extras on the tour or booking page, or contact your guide directly to clarify.

Will there be other tourists in my tour?

No. Your tour is private, only for you and your family or friends, there will be no other group of tourists together in your tour.

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.

Kazue showed my family of three a lot of wonderful sights in Nikko. She planned an itinerary to suit our interests and made good recommendations with regards to food and mode of transportation. I highly recommend Kazue as she is professional, informative, friendly and warm.

“ When I told her I want to go to the school I attended as a child, she located it and initiated a call to them and then forward to me the web address. ”

It was a wonderful day. It began at the school I attended in K-2 grades and the the Dean of Admissions gave us an hour long tour and showed me the building where I would have had classes. It was rich. Then we visited a park near by that she thought was lovely and I probably went to as a child. On the way I spotted a pastry shop so we digressed for a treat and coffee. And walked thru the neighborhood of Hiro-o. Then we went to the Japanese Traditional Crafts Aoyama Square that I said I want to see as I love to see pottery and crafts of a country. Had a wonderful lunch along the way and then went to the gardens of the Imperial Palace and concluded with going to a big toy story for gifts for grandchildren. It was a fun, delightful day with Kazue who had a good listening hear and suggestions for what interests me.

“ Our customised tour in Tokyo with Kazue! ”

We had the most amazing day with Kazue during our tour in Tokyo! She is very friendly, polite and we really enjoyed our day with her visiting Tokyo! We contacted Kazue on her availability before arriving in Japan and she was very prompt to respond with ideas on how to customise our tour. After a few emails our plan was set and ready for our one-day (8hrs) tour of Tokyo. She introduced us to must-see areas, shrines/temples and food of Tokyo. The fact that she speaks perfect English, made our life so much easier when we needed a translator into Japanese. She made the first day of our honeymoon very special!
