You will only be responsible for the cancellation fee specified in the Standard Cancellation Policy. Please carefully review the terms and conditions specified on the checkout page.

    • Why am I charged a service fee if I make a cancellation after you started planning the trip?
    • With many options and attractions to choose from in the city, it may seem easier to just choose a set tour that’s already available out there, but after you book this Custom Tour, we’ll work closely with you on designing the perfect tour that is only for you. To make it easier for you, after the tour is booked, you’ll receive a Custom Tour form with various potential options and themes for you to easily choose from. We’ll also consider all your preferences: whether you are into Japanese culture, history, food, nature and scenery, seasonal experiences such as Winter Illuminations, or other, you’ll be able to easily make your selections and identify any spots on your wish-list before we start planning away for you.
    • As for mode of transportation, you’ll have the option to choose public transportation option (utilizing the excellent train and bus systems) or the private vehicle option (with a meticulously clean and comfortable chartered vehicle with personal driver) to take you around the city for your own comfort. The choice is yours. We are just here to make the planning and arranging process easy for you.
    • Passports may be required to verify age on the day of the tour.

      Perfect Half-Day Tour
      Even though our time was limited, we hit the highlights and memorable, including the castle (presumably Toshogu Shrine) and the markets. Highly recommended for anyone with a short stay in Nikko!

    My wife and I had a very good time. It was great because we could choose where to go, making it special for us. The guide was very good, and we liked it very much. Especially, we liked the freedom on the tour. It's good for couples who want a special time. Highly recommended!
