Your Experience

Walk straight into Japan’s beautiful culture and traditions on this partially guided one-day tour to Nikko and discover the curious ways of the ninja. After a convenient pick up from the meeting point, an expert English-speaking guide will lead you to the famous Nikko Toshogu Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the final resting place of Tokigawa Ieyasu, who laid the foundation of scholarship and industry for over 260 years of peace and culture during the Edo Period.

After exploring the shrine, you will set off on your own to see the Nikko Edomura, a historical themed park that lets you feel the palpable atmosphere of the Edo Period on your skin with its five areas (Kaido, the road to Edo; Shukuba-machi, a town of inns; Shokagai, the market district; Bukeyashiki, a samurai residence district; and the Ninja Village). Take your time here and discover the lifestyle of 17th century Japan. Try your hand at the Samurai Swordsman Experience, practice some archery, enjoy watching ninja performances and dress up like an Edo-era townsperson yourself!
