What you can expect

Take a journey through Nikko city and explore its rich history and fascinating architecture. Observe the intricate craftsmanship and enriching details at Nikko Toshogu, Lake Chuzenji, and Kegon Falls, which is one of the greatest water fall in Japan. This bus tour takes you efficiently and directly to Nikko's sightseeing spots which are difficult to visit on one's own using route buses.

Head 87 miles (140 km) north of Tokyo and visit Nikko Toshogu, a Shinto shrine that is part of the Shrines and Temples of Nikko, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Marvel at the elaborate carvings, marvelous architecture, and artistic splendor as you walk through numerous buildings in a beautiful forest setting. Also, the national treasure Yomeimon Gate was once again opened to the public in 2017, after about 4 years of the shrine's large-scale repairs which cost around JPY 1.2 billion (USD 10.4 million). Lay your eyes on the richly colored structures that have been restored to their former glory.

Break for a delicious Japanese lunch, and after that, making your way to Lake Chuzenji. This is a scenic lake with a circumference of about 25 km and a depth of 163 m, created about 20,000 years ago from an eruption of Mt. Nantai which blocked the valley.

Next, take a hike to the observatory deck located in front of one of Japan’s three greatest waterfalls, Kegon Waterfall, whose water descends from a height of 319 feet (97 m).

Finally, via Tobu Nikko Station, Stop over at Hanyu Parking Area. You may feels like traveling back in time to the Edo Period (1603-1868) there! See the beautiful structures and famous long-established shops dating back to the Edo Period, and enjoy shopping for souvenirs.

Continue to the parts of Tokyo that doesn’t sleep—Shinjuku—where your guide will explain how to return to your hotel. But feel free to experience some of the nightlife of this remarkable area before you go.
