On this tour, I'll show you mysterious and deep Japan, not Japan that is told by the outward appearance. Because shiobara was a samurai and aristocratic famous spa resort area from Edo to Taisho era, it is a deep connection with the world’s oldest imperial family. I'll take you to the place you've never imagine. I love to meeting people and international exchange ,I’m looking forward to see you!

Important Information

Basically available every day. But I can not accept sudden request. It would be appreciated if you tell me your schedule before around a month. I can guide nikko and nasushiobara. But I strongly recommend shiobara(a part of nasushiobara) where is little known but amazing !! Just only 90 mints from Tokyo by bullet train. So this is best choice that first day sightseeing in Nikko and move to Shiobara, stay over night at onsen-ryokan(0ld japanese stile hotel with hot spring),second day sightseeing in Shiobara ,then go back Tokyo or somewhere. I can introduce some great and reasonable onsen-ryokan.

-Nikko is cloth to shiobara, so this is best desision that first day you go to nikko, move to shiobara and stay overnight at onsen-ryokan, second day you will have great experience in shiobara for a day(or more). Then go back toTokyo or somewhere.

-You should weare old clothes and confortable walking shose.Because Shiobara is kind of mountain place .

-you will be asked rent a car in shiobara. but I can drive.so you need bring a international drive licence.

-a towl for hot spring can be borrowed (¥200~500),if you bring it your self it will not cost.

-Transportation fee and lunch of you and a guide will be paid by the customer.

-Those who have tatoos may not enter hot spring"onsen".Small ones and things hidden ,these are no ploblem .

I have plenty of attractive spots to go and to try other than this tour such a gorge,suspention bridge,mountain, Botanical Garden, aquatic park, skiing, kayak,kimono experience, tea ceremony experience...and more. Give me your request,please.
