Greet your knowledgeable guide at select pickup locations in Tokyo and depart to Nikko on a comfortable, air-conditioned bus. Head first to the Nikko Toshugo Shrine, a monumental mausoleum of the first Tokugawa shogun, and roam the captivating complex alongside your accomplished guide. See intricate scripting and intriguing carvings of the ‘hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil’ monkeys.
After gazing at the impressive Yomeimon Gate, begin your journey out of the beautiful Nikko National Park, famed for its wild monkeys and verdant scenery, and bid farewell to your guide. Continue onto one of many excellent eateries for lunch (own expense), then climb aboard the complimentary shuttle to Edo Wonderland, a historical amusement park bursting with color and charisma.
Stroll the antique streets of the wonderland and travel back in time to 17th-century Tokyo; greet geishas and pass samurais and ninjas as you capture photographs of the impressive surroundings. Watch performances of traditional Kabuki shows in a selection of six theaters and see the atmospheric shadow picture shows that influenced modern anime. After spending a couple hours in Edo Wonderland, you will be provided with detailed instruction for you to take local bus and train back to Tokyo.
