We might not see some of falls when dense fogs develop. You can hear the roar of the falls and get the spray from the waterfalls, though.
We mainly use buses and when it is bad weather we don't walk down to the bottomof the falls.
We usually stroll around each falls from 15 minutes to 50 minutes. If you prefer not to walk, please let me know. I'll minimize the walking time.
I'm happy to tell you how to get to Nikko and how to get back to Tokyo.
If you'd like to start and end this tour at your hotel in Tokyo, it's possible.
Please contact me about that.
We spent two days with Michiko in Kamakura and Nikko. She did a fantastic job of organizing our time and sharing her knowledge and love of these beautiful places! It was a pleasure to work with Michiko.
Thank you for your kind review. I was impressed by your excellent empathy skills being based on your attitude trying to see things from a different perspective. I believe people like you make the world peace!
Michiko met us promptly at the start of our tour and showed the schedule and said she is very flexible and can move things around. This actually happened because of bad weather conditions and with our approval, she suggested changes that reversed the morning itinerary with the evening. It was a long and busy day and crammed with activities as per my suggestions and Michiko kept us on track and allowed a lot of time for us to enjoy each site. Though English is not her native language, we were able to communicate with her fairly effectively. I would definitely use her services the next time I am in Japan.
Thank you for your kind words! They encouraged me a lot. I’ve not been confident in my English. However, I’m a nationally licensed English tour guide and medical interpreter with a certificate of the highest grade in the English proficiency test. Come to think of it, I have no time to despair. I’ll continue practicing English everyday slow but sure to help my guests make their dreams come true. Again, thank you for your kindness!
Michiko is a heart warming person. She is very attentive , kind and generous. She took us to all the places we requested. She is fun and knowledgeable. We were happy to have her as our guide.
Thank you for your review. It’s encouraged me a lot to carry out nice tours for future guests. I’m on the Shinkansen to go back home from the final route check in Hakone (near Mt. Fuji) for the tour expected the next week. Hakone has an amazing “onsen”, hot springs. Let’s go there next time!
Michiko tries very hard and does her homework to prepare for her tours. Her lunch suggestions were really great and we appreciated that very much.
Thank you for your review, Veronica. It will be my great motivation for future tours! I always do my best for my guests. I hope you all have refreshed yourselves at the magnificent views of waterfalls and architecture in Nikko and a sea breeze in a Japan’s old capital, Kamakura.
