Nikko World Heritage Tour

Nikko Daytrip

Head north from Tokyo and experience a mountain resort area that gained prominence in the late 1800s. This grand escape from Tokyo can be luxuriously yours from 90,000 yen (about US$831).

Luxury Trip to Nikko Toshogu Shrine

Nikko is one of Japan’s top destinations.

The World Heritage Sites surrounding and including Toshogu comprise Nikko’s main attraction, together forming Japan’s most lavishly decorated shrine and mausoleum complex, all created for Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate.

For a taste of the region’s big nature, the mountains west of the main city are part of Nikko National Park, and contain some of the country’s most spectacular waterfalls and scenic trails. There are also many famous hot springs in the area.

Meet your personal travel guide at your hotel for an early departure by Shinkansen (bullet train) and then explore Nikko by guided taxi.

During the tour, you will visit Nikko Toshogu, Iroha-zaka (a pair of winding roads that connect the lower elevations near central Nikko to the higher, mountainous elevations of the Okunikko region), and Kegon-no-taki (a waterfall)—all in the hours before the large groups of tourists arrive.

After exploring this amazing countryside part of Japan, head back to Tokyo by Shinkansen.

Other attractive sights:
・ Walking Kurano-machi (traditional-style storehouse town) and river cruising in city of Tochigi
・ Nikko Edo-mura (Edo Wonderland Village), a historic village
