Hi there!! I am an English speaking tour guide based in Utsunomiya city near Nikko. Since I came back from Auckland, New Zealand I started my own business as an English Speaking Guide. I have been a guide for 6 years. My favorite things to do these days are 1. visit historical places in Tochigi prefecture, 2. find nice restaurants and bars in Utsunomiya 3. wear hats while I am working outside.
If you want to enjoy Nikko, please think about staying Nikko or Utsunomiya, I will take you around the night tour if you stay in Utsunomiya.
My family and I had a lovely day out with Jack exploring Okunikko, he navigated the hairpin roads with ease and we were able to see all the beautiful waterfalls and lake Chuzenji. Our tour of Toshogu Shrine was also very interesting and Jack gave us lots of facts about the temples and shrines at this site, which makes it more memorable than if we had gone on our own. Jack was also very accommodating when I requested for my family of 5 to have a tour, and he organised a larger car so we could enjoy the day together. I would recommend Jack to anyone who wants to visit Nikko! I only wish we could spend more time in this beautiful place.
Thank you so much for your comment. It was a lovely day and we enjoyed the day with you and your family. We saw a knocked down old lady and an almost upsidedown car around out car park, didn't we? Hope no one was critical condition! Enjoy rest of your trip. Jack
Jack, our guide was incredible, super informative and very nice!! highly recommend this trip.
We absolutely would recommend this day tour with Jack in Nikko. The communication with him before the booking of the tour and in the days before the tour (preparing for it) has been outstanding, quick and efficient. The tour itself is a whole day thing, we met at 09:00 and finished at about 18:00. Jack is very knowledgeable and his English is great. We managed to visit everything that we wanted to see, had a traditional Nikko lunch and overall an excellent experience! Dōmo Arigatō Jack.
Thank you, Alex and Tamara. We walked a lot today, didn't we? My legs are saying no more walking and need a rest. I'm glad you enjoyed walking with me at Rinnoji Temple, Toshogu Shrine, Tamozawa Imperial Villa Memorial Park and Kanmangfuchi Gorge. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your trip. Jack
Jack was quick to adapt to our needs and catered to our interests. He makes our trip to Nikko so much more enriching and fun. Would most definitely recommend Jack to anyone going to Nikko!
Thank you for your comment. Due to the traffic, unfortunately, we could not enjoy visiting temples and shrines. While you live in Tokyo, why don't you come back to Nikko again? I enjoyed myself with your family on that day. Thank you. Jack
