Nikko World Heritage Day Tour from Tokyo

A wonderful experience, well worth doing. The guide was very knowledgable and very pleasant . Lunch was fantastic! The snow, an added bonus. Freezing cold at the waterfall, but lovely. Only part I wouldn't recommend is walking up the 200 plus steps to the tomb, no view from the top and the steps were treacherous in the ice and snow. ...Marylyn D., United Kingdom – See more reviews
