We will walk a lot, so please wear walking shoes like sneakers.
There is no way of avoiding stairs. The accessibility of the World Heritage is very low.
Nikko is much colder than Tokyo, and we will be outdoors for quite a long time, so please prepare things to keep you warm.
The temples and shrines close at 17:00 from April 1, 16:00 from November 1.
Basically, there is only one Tobu Express for Nikko every hour, so I hope you will be punctual with the meeting time.

I will arrange the itinerary based on your requests.
Great day out visiting Mount Fuji. Yoko was very helpful with the booking and anticipating all needs prior to the tour. On the day, Yoko met us at the lobby of our hotel and off we went to see Mt Fuji! Great day with the weather on our side. Yoko was very knowledgable, thank you for sharing your experience with us! I was traveling with my 7 year old son, we both really enjoy the day out and everything went smoothly. If you want a personalised tour, go for it, it makes a huge difference with no hassle, great learning experience, worth everything. Yoko is very flexible. Merci beaucoup Yoko!
Ne de rien!! Thank you so much for such a great review, Sophie. The pleasure was mine that I could share the great view of Mount Fuji from Lake Kawaguchiko. I enjoyed the conversation with you a lot about France, UK and yourself even the temperature difference seemed to be quite tough for Rye. I hope you and Rye remember how to do the origami of Kabuto, the samurai helmet. I will practice the frog based on the site you told me. I hope you're enjoying Kyoto and please enjoy the rest of your stay. Merci beaucoup et à bientôt!!
Yoko was an excellent tour guide. She devised a tour with our interests as well as “must sees” as a newbie to Japan. Yoko is extremely organized and knowledgeable. Our time with her was well spent. We learned a lot and would definitely recommend Yoko for an enjoyable tour of Tokyo.
Thank you for a wonderful review. I had a great day with both of you. When I see works of Yayoi Kusama, I will remember you and the wonderful conversations we had that day. Nikko is also an amazing place to visit for an art fan like you, so please come again. Thank you again!!
As stated in earlier review. Perfect guide for perfect trip
Thank you so much for your review, Mr. McGuire. It was a great pleasure for me to guide you, Kelly, Kirsten and Jordan, Tokyo, Nikko and Lake Kawaguchiko. All of you were so intelligent, beautiful and so sweet, so I had a great time during the three days. I'll be looking forward to seeing you coming back with them or your other grandchildren. Please take care till then. Thank you again for the wonderful days!!
We had a good day with Yoko exploring all aspects of our local surroundings as per an itinerary we had designed. The day was cold and eventually wet, but we continued through our itinerary despite the elements. It was a long day but we managed to see everything that we had set out to see and explore. Yoko was very knowledgeable and was able to provide the context details that made the journey more interesting.
Thank you very much for your review. It was too bad it started to rain but we dropped by to get umbrellas even though some of you didn't like to use them. I hope you could find something interesting at Sekaido and enjoyed your stay in Japan. Sakura (Cherry blossoms) are very beautiful in Spring, so please come to see them in the future. Please take care!!
