Hi! I'm Takeshi Hamano.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

Nikko is located about 125 kilometers north of Tokyo and makes a good one-day trip from Tokyo.
It will take about two hours from Tokyo with a limited express. It is a home to world heritage sites including Toshogu Shrine, Futarasan Shrine, and Rinnoji Temple, but also it has great nature surroundings.
We will visit Nikko by public transportation and walk around the sacred area surrounded by beautiful nature.
The main highlight of the tour is the Toshogu Shrine. We will see some famous animal decorative ornaments such as Three Wise Monkeys and The Sleeping Cat or “Nemuri Neko”.

Hello! My name is Takeshi. Please call me Tony.
My hometown is Tokyo. I worked for a Japanese company for more than 30 years. Before joining the company, I received a master's degree in engineering in the United States.
After retiring from the company two years ago, I began working as a licensed guide interpreter in English for foreign visitors.
I would like to guide you to places you are interested in and share with you the Japanese culture in my guided tours.

Hope to see you soon.
