Overview

Usually, you need to go to Shikoku Island in the western part of Japan by plane for a pilgrimage to 88 Buddhism temples and it takes so many days. But in a mountain in a rural area of Tokyo, you can experience the pilgrimage in the similar way to one in Shikoku Island in a day trip.

What to Expect

By showing a monk the three red stumps, you can get the certification for the pilgrimage with beautiful red and black Chinese characters.

“ Very good tour guide, took to all the places I wanted to visit:) ”

My tour with Sumiaki was very good. He provided interesting facts about each place we visited, we spent the day in Nikko and visited Toshogu Shrine, Kegon Falls, Lake Chuzenji as per my request but we also visited Ryukyu Falls and I had not planned to go here but it was very beautiful! Sumiaki is very friendly, polite and helpful and took some great photos at each location which I can share with family when I return home :). Overall a great day! Thank you :)

SUMIAKI:

Thank you very much for your review. I hope you go back to your home country on Saturday with so many happy memories!

SUMIAKI:

Thank you very much for your review. This morning, I recommend you get to the Shinagawa Station earlier and ask the truck and compartment number of Nozomi 11 to the station clerk showing your ticket. Have a nice day trip for Kyoto!

“ Hakone Day Trip ”

Sumi was great to work with. His English is quite good. He assisted us in doing the Hakone area loop with travel by rail, gondola, and Viking ship. Excellent orientation to the area!

SUMIAKI:

Dear Stephen, your wife and Max, Thank you very much for your review. I expect you also enjoyed Kyoto and Osaka, have come back to your home and Max is quite well. See you again, Sumiaki
