My guide, Ikuko-ssn, met me at my hotel where we discussed a plan for our half day guided trip. She incorporated my wishes and showed great flexibility as to what we saw in Nikko and how. Thus our plan was to focus on the temples and shrines of Nikko and we would walk everywhere. However if I’d have desired it she’d have got a bus or taken me somewhere else. I found her to be very informative and flexible. She had lots of good suggestions including what restaurant and dish to try as well as a free bus pass promotion. Highly recommended!!
