What‘s not included

transportation fee (return ticket) from Tokyo to Nikko (you and guide, about 7,500 yen ~ 11,000 yen per person, depends on which train we take, JR or Tobu), transportation fee in Nikko (bus, taxi), entrance fee (you and guide, I am free of charge for most places as I am a licenced guide), meal (you and guide) - at your expense

Tour Important Information

I can meet you in Tokyo (your hotel or stations) and accompany you to Tokyo (your hotel or stations) if you would like (extra charges would be applied).

I can arrange a private car with a driver. Hiring a car would be much more efficient to move around and comfortable. I know a good company that offer a good price and service. Please inquire the details.

Nikko is famous for beautiful autumnal leaves, so it can be very crowded in October and November. We should avoid visiting on weekends around that period if possible. We may have to skip some places if the traffic is very heavy.

Please bring some Japanese yen, some places don't accept a credit card.

*Please send me a message to confirm my availability BEFORE booking, thank you.

Wonderful guide

We had a fantastic two days with Makiko - she was so efficient and helpful and informative. We will definitely recommend her to everyone who plans to travel to Japan. Having a wonderful guide made all the difference to our visit. Tokyo is a special place and Makiko was the icing on the cake!!

Kamakura and Tokyo Tours

The day after arriving in Japan we arranged to have a tour of Kamakura and the following day a half day tour of Tokyo. Both of these were with Makiko. Makiko was recommended to us. We found her to be very pleasant to spend time with. She is knowledgeable with regards to the sites we visited but also on the broader aspects of Japanese culture. She was accomodating to our particular needs. We visited some temples and shrines which were enhanced by the information provided by Makiko. We particularly enjoyed the soba noodle restaurant Makiko took us to. We arranged these tours as an introduction to our 2 weeks in Japan. We are now on our own to make the most of our holiday. Makiko has offered for us to sms if we have any further questions which crop up during our visit. I think this is over and above her commitment to us. I would very much recommend Makiko to guide others wishing to enhance their experience of Japan.
