Travel to Nikko via deluxe coach from Tokyo. Visit Toshogu Shrine, which dates back to 1617 and has been named a World Heritage Site. An exception to most others in Japan, this shrine is renowned for its enumerable wood carvings, copious gilding, and brilliant colors throughout. Admire the elaborate architecture and the omnipresent mythical beasts meticulously carved on the various structures and watching over the grounds. Keep an eye out for the famous carving of the “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” monkeys at the Sacred Stable.

Enjoy lunch at a Japanese-style restaurant before traveling on to the Nikko Tamozawa Imperial Villa, a registered Important Cultural Property. (You may include or exclude the price of lunch by selecting the corresponding ticket type.) The villa feature architecture from the late Edo period, Meiji period, and Taisho period, as well as a beautiful garden.

Next, enjoy a stop at the Kirifuri Waterfall, considered to be one of Nikko’s most beautiful waterfalls, before returning to Ginza or Shinjuku.
