Overview

Nikko is blessed with natural beauty as well as historical and religious sites. Located in the distance of just two hours train-ride from Tokyo, it's a good place for one-day excursion. In this tour, you enjoy beautiful scenery around Lake Chuzenji, Kegon Waterfall and Nikko Toshogu Shrine, a World Cultural Heritage site.

What to Expect

Nikko is blessed with natural and artificial beauty. In this tour you can enjoy both of them in a day.

1. Natural beauty
Kegon waterfall and Lake Chuzenji are located on the foot of Mt. Nantai with 2,500 meters above the sea. The lake is 25 kilometers around and filled with pure water. A river that flows from the lake forms Kegon waterfall with a drop of 100 meters. Those three composes a magnificent view in this area and it will be a great memory for you in Japan.

2. Artificial beauty
Another attraction in Nikko is the artificial beauty of religious facilities. You'll be surprised to see those elaborate carvings that cover the buildings of Nikko Toshogu shrine built in the 17th century.

3. Other adventures
If you're interested in samurai or traveling with your children, it might be fun to visit Nikko Edo Wonderland, a theme park of Edo period. In this tour you'll visit Toshogu shrine in the morning and enjoy the park in the afternoon. Both areas are connected with free shuttle bus.

“ Kamakura tour ”

One of the best ways to see a place is using a personal tour guide, Toru responded quickly and adjusted to our likes and wishes . Comparing all the tours available, my group was able to go at our own pace and plan our itinerary . I asked to do a tea ceremony , which was definitely a highlight being private and his choice of the gardens was peaceful and beautiful . Our seaside lunch introduced us to the local fish and felt it was really A local spot - no tour buses! We even got to watch a surfer hitting the waves from the restaurant! He was knowledgable about the area and give us new insights. His English was perfect and clear , with a touch of accent !!! I wish we had more energy and time to cover all the sights. Thoroughly enjoyed his company and felt like I’ve known him for years ..... read more

Toru:

Hello Corinne, thank you very much for your warm comments on the tour. I also enjoyed guiding you and your lovely family. This time it was a season of hydrangeas in Kamakura. Next time, maybe, in the season of cherry blossoms or Autumn leaves. I'm looking forward to seeing you and your family in the near future. Thank you again.
