What You Can Expect
Head straight to what is unanimously hailed as the park’s most spectacular site, the Toshogu Shrine, a UNESCO-listed mausoleum of a revered monarch whole ruled Japan in the 19th century. Marvel at lavish gold-leaf embellishments and opulent chambers during your 1.5-hour exploration of the monument. See iconic carvings depicting the ‘hear no evil’ proverb then revitalize with a delectable Japanese lunch if you selected the option at booking.
Next, venture to the natural landmark of Kegon Waterfall, a powerful force considered one of the park’s most beautiful waterfalls. Capture the perfect pictures of the falls from a variety of vantage points and feel the refreshing spray of water on your face as you gaze from an observation deck.
Conclude your tour with some retail therapy at either Ginza or Shinjuku stations, two of Tokyo’s most extravagant entertainment districts. Peruse shops for special souvenirs and refresh with a snack at one of the many eateries (own expense) before making your own way back to your hotel.
The tour was excellent. It did feel a little rushed, but the tour guide was excellent, the food served during the tour was really good. It was money well spent!
Great trip - tour company has been around for a long time so we had no issues and what they promised they delivered on. The write up is what you will doing - there are no surprises just a follow through with what is promised.
Our guide Amy was great! The only down part of this trip was rainy weather. It would be nice to have a little more free time to shop at the gift shops- that is the only critique I can offer on a otherwise wonderful trip to Nikko.
very good tour, beautiful nature.
Magnificent landscape. Very cold and exciting scenic views.
Highly recommended. 100 enjoyable!!
This tour is probably better in the fall so you could see the fall foliage. However, I visited in April and it is still very nice to see the shrine. The waterfall was less than spectacular. The bus dropped us off at Shinjuku at 6:30PM. The trip to Nikko was nice especially if you would like to see the countryside.
Better than Mt. Fuji!
This was extremely enjoyable, wonderful day out.

A must see tour. See one of the very last temple of the shogun, well preserved and a lot of history of Japan in it. We had also a very knowledgeable English speaking tourists guide. Very nice sceneries on the way to Nikko. Highly Recommended
