You'll also visit Nikko, a small city at the entrance to the national park. The highlight here is the world-famous Toshogu Shrine, the mausoleum of the first Tokugawa Shogun. It's a gorgeous complex of colorful structures featuring the superb craftsmanship of Japan's 17th century artisans. Look out for the famous carving of the hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil monkeys.

Spend some time at the Tamozawa Imperial Villa featuring architecture from the Edo, Meiji and Taisho periods. The villa was originally built as a resting place for Emperor Taisho and has since housed other illustrious guests, most notably the Showra Emperor during World War 2.

Take a break for lunch and afterward, travel to the Kirifuri Waterfall, considered one of the three most beautiful waterfalls in Nikko. The waterfall takes its name from the mist created by the water hitting the rocks below and producing an enchanting fog-like (Kirafuri) quality.

Finish your tour at Shinjuku, one of Tokyo's most popular shopping and entertainment districts. Browse the shopping areas or relax with dinner and a drink at one of the many restaurants (at own expense), before making your own way back to your hotel.

    This was actually my kids favorite tour. Well organized, our guide took good care of us. The traffic was bad, but that's out of anyone's control. It's a long day, but well worth the time.

    Amazing tour! Do not let the 3 hour travel discourage you. Toshogu is stunning and well worth it alone...the waterfall and imperial residence are just icing on the cake. The guide and driver from JBT (Misako San and Yamamato San) were extremely pleasant,polite and knowlegdable. The tour was well structured with interesting guided portions and then significant free time to explore on your own at each site. Lunch was traditional tempura and iron at a resteraunt in nikko city..and well it was great. Better than any tempura I ever found in the states. I say if you have a day to chill in Tokyo do this over Mt Fujitsu
