What you can expect

Join this tour from central Tokyo to visit one of the most famous sightseeing spots of the Kanto region, the UNESCO World Heritage Site Toshogu Shrine. Enhance your experience if you are lucky enough to travel in Autumn and see one of the best displays of Autumn colors near Tokyo. Japanese Autumn attract thousands of visitor every year and Nikko is the best foliage viewing spot of the region.

The tour will start with a stop at the main sightseeing spot of the day, one of Japan's main holy sites: Nikko Toshogu Shrine, the final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate that ruled Japan for over 250 years until 1868. Here you will be overwhelmed by the gold plating that makes of each building a unique treasure. Nikko Toshogu Shrine is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Visit its main hall, behold the famous “Three Monkeys” and walk a stone stairway into the forest in a Shinto complex that will make you travel back in time!

After lunch, get back on the bus and enjoy a fantastic drive through the Irohazaka winding road, the famous slope and its 48 hairpins.

Once past Irohazaka, the tour will stop at Kegon Waterfall, one of the Three Famous Waterfalls of Japan. The landscape there is breathtaking in every season, but it is particularly beautiful in Autumn and Winter. Follow the stream to get to Lake Chuzenji, at the foot of Mt. Futara, a sleeping volcano.

The tour will be over around 18:30 when you will be brought back to Shinjuku station.
