This was a great day trip. Nikko is absolutely stunning. All the stops are well timed but the park is huge so you're only just scratching the surface but what you do see is amazing. Make sure you go into the building with the crying Dragon! Highly recommend.

The scope of the tour included many wonderful sights. I especially loved Nikko and the Toshogu Shrine. The guide was very helpful and informative, but was a little difficult to understand as her accent was very strong. I loved the tour and feel it is a very good value for the money.
