This 1-day guided tour from Tokyo takes you to some of Nikko's most popular sightseeing spots like World Heritage Site Toshogu Shrine, the mesmerising 97 meter high Kegon Falls, and beautiful Lake Chuzenji. It includes round-trip transportation from Tokyo by bus.

This tour visits scenic places that are very popular with Japanese tourists during fall (late Oct. - early Nov.) and spring (late Apr. - early May). On weekends and national holidays at these times, traffic can get extremely heavy and alterations to the itinerary are likely (see "Remarks"). As such, we highly recommend AVOIDING weekends and holidays during these seasons and joining on weekdays when typically fewer domestic tourists are visiting. Please note that traffic and other circumstances may cause changes to the itinerary on weekdays as well.
