Hideaki did an amazing job showing us Nikko. He was professional, timely and extremely knowledgeable about the history of area. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to experience the charm of Nikko and the wonderful history and beauty of the area.

Walter-san, Thank you very much for your review. I'm very glad to know you enjoyed the tour, even though it started raining suddenly. Best Regards, Hideaki Murayama

Full Day Tour to Nikko

Kahoko planned our Nikko day perfectly. She booked taxis and Nikko transportation for us and communicated our itinerary well in advance. She is so pleasant to be around and knows much about area. Our day started with a taxi ride to Tokyo Station followed by two Shinkansen trains and then a private driver around Nikko. This would have been difficult to plan myself. Kahako will do all the logistics for you and meet you at your hotel for pickup. Once we got to Nikko we took some scenic pictures and then headed to lunch at a quaint western cuisine restaurant. Then onto two waterfalls an amazing Shinto shrine and Buddhist Temple. On our return she rode back with us making sure we knew when to get off and on our trains. She offers a great tour with a friendly smile. I definitely recommend using her while visiting the Tokyo area.

Gena J.

Thank you very much for the kindest and amazingly prompt reply ! It's a record-making ! It was such a lovely day with a wonderful family from Tennessee--- first time for me. I became a big fan of Tennessee because of you. As a wife and husband, or a doctor and nurse, you are making a perfect couple. I am so impressed that you are sweet and caring each other even after almost 25 years together. After seeing you, I feel like being nicer to my own husband. Probably, he will appreciate you. Anyway, I hope you will have a marvelous time in Osaka and Kyoto. Also, please say hello to Nara's deer. They are waiting for you ! Thank you again, and take care!
