Nikko and Mount Fuji are approximately two hours on Limited Express from Shinjuku or Asakusa.
Tokyo is not a compact city, but a huge one.
If you have difficulties with stairs, please tell me in your message. Thank you.
From mid March, 7:30 Limited Express will be abolished, so we will use Tobu Limited Express instead.
Please be punctual.
Please choose the places of your interest looking at the pictures.
Sometimes it is difficult to get seats on the bus to Lake Chuzenji (Kegon Falls), so smaller group is preferable.
We will walk a lot, so please wear walking shoes like sneakers. You will need to take off your shoes several times.
There is no way of avoiding stairs. The Accessibility of the World Heritage is extremely low.
Nikko is coldler than Tokyo.
The temples and shrines close at 16:00 from November 1.
If you don't walk so much and you don't want to visit all the spots in the highlights, please feel free to send a message.
I will arrange the itinerary based on your requests.
During November, there is a terrible traffic jam, which might take hours sometimes, even on weekdays.
Switch your other tours to weekends and try to make the Nikko tour on WEEKDAYS by all means.
Please look at the highlights and add them up yourself to get a ball-park figure, because it varies on the places you'd choose to visit and the number of people.
I'm just a tour guide, not a travel agent.
We had a great first day with Yoko in Tokyo. She was very friendly, on time, very helpfull. We learned how to use the metro system and Yoko showed us so many places in one day. She answered all of our questions , we learned a lot. She is the best !!!
I appreciate your great review, Mr. Vo. We enjoyed the highlights of Tokyo together. Meiji JIngu Shrine was much nicer with the Shigosan season and Chrysanthemums. It was really nice talking to both you and your amazing wife. I hope you could enjoy your cruise around Japan, too. I wish you will come to Japan soon again. Thank you again!!
highly recommendable perfect guide, reliable, picked us up at our hotel which she checked out before our arrival, very energetic two days program, took us to great places, good mixture of shrines/temples, parks and gardens, excellent restaurants for lunch, local shopping streets with few tourists, we used trains and subway, we had a great time with here
I appreciate your great review, Silvia san. I enjoy the two days with you and Bruno san. We enjoyed great sushi lunch at an extremely popular restaurant the first day and eel and yakitori lunch on the second day. We covered a lot during the two days because both of you were so fit and didn't complain about walking a lot. I hope your dogsitter liked the souvenirs we found together. Please come again to see the Cherry blossoms soon. Please enjoy the Kinmokusei aroma till then. Thank you again, Yoko
Yoko is a great tour guide. She was flexible, listen to what we wanted to see and did the tour efficiently, Her English is excellent because she spent many years in USA. We did Kamakura and Yokohama in one day from Tokyo. Started at 9 am and we were home by 5. She went out of her way to reserve a Chinese restaurant for us. And gave us advice about shopping in Ginza. Can’t go wrong with Yoko.
I appreciate your review so much, Jacqueline san. We got back to your hotel a little pass 5 but we could cover a lot in a day because both of you could walk and do stairs without troubles. We visited the Great Buddha, Hasedera Temple, soba lunch, Cup Noodle Museum, Park overlooking Yokohama Harbor and Chinatown. It was nice seeing you having different ice creams. Actually the booking was done by the Concierge but there are many Chinese restaurants in Tokyo too so please check them the next time you come in the future. It was nice talking and meeting both of you. Thank you again, Yoko
I went on a tour with my wife and our 8 year old daughter. Yoko was great and showed us more than we could have seen on our own. It was a very full 8 hours and we were happy and exhausted by the end. Thanks Yoko!!
Thank you so much for a nice review, Christopher san. It was a pleasant day to enjoy the tea ceremony, Okonomiyaki lunch, view from Marunouchi Building, East Gardens of Imperial Palace and Asakusa. I hope you, your wife and Chloe will enjoy Kyoto too. Maybe the gates that you asked about is the Torii Gates of Fushimi Inari Shrine. You can enjoy some street foods near Kiyomizu Temple. Please have fun!!
