Overview :

1. This bus tour takes customers efficiently and directly to Nikko's sightseeing spots which are difficult to visit on one's own using route buses. The National Government Licensed English Guide Interpreter will lead participants on a tour of Nikko Toshogu Shrine, registered as a World Heritage Site, while telling them about its rich history.
2. Visit Kegon Falls, counted among the greatest waterfalls in Japan. (Except some tour dates. *See Remarks.)
3. Visit Lake Chuzenji, 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. (Excluding some dates)
4. After finishing the shrine's large-scale repairs which took around 4 years and cost around JPY 1.2 billion (approx. USD 11 million), the national treasure Yomeimon Gate was opened to the public in 2017. Lay your eyes on the richly colored structures that have been restored to their former glory.
5. Travel back in time to the Edo Period (1603-1868)! There will be a stopover at the Hanyu Parking Area, which reproduces the Edo-style atmosphere. See the beautiful structures and famous long-established shops dating back to the Edo Period, and enjoy shopping for souvenirs. *See Remarks.
6. Customers may opt to end the tour at Tobu Nikko Station.
