What To Expect

Lake Chuzenji
Lake Chuzenji is Japan’s highest natural lake, located just west of Nikko and is part of the Nikko National Park. It formed about 20,000 years ago when neighboring Mt. Nantai erupted and its lava flow dammed the Daiyo River. The lake tips the altitude scales at 1,269 meters.

Nikko one day tour: Ohayo Travel is the best
Mkondapi, 06-01-2023
We visited Japan in December of 2022. We booked our tour on TripAdvisor before we landed in Japan. We were not sure what to expect from the tour but Saqib, the tour operator, made us feel so welcome and put us at ease immediately by offering us all the information that we needed. We booked all our day trips with him and he is one of the best tour guides we have had in our overseas travels. Saqib knows the area so well. He understood our time constraints and was ready to accommodate us even at the last moment. It was so easy to work with him. He is so cordial, polite and friendly and kind. We highly recommend him to anyone. We will gladly work with him again if and when we visit Japan again. We wish there’s a Saqib in every country we visit
Great Nikko trip from Tokyo

We had a wonderful trip with Ohayo travel. We spent relatively more time at the Tosho-gu shrine and other shrines in the area. In early November, the fall colors were amazing. We also saw Chuzenji lake and Shinkyo bridge. All in all, a great day trip from Tokyo, thanks in no small part to the knowledge as well as flexibility of the owner/guide. He was patient and accommodating, and we made his day far too long.
Wonderful day trip in Nikko

We booked a day trip in Nikko with Ohayo Travel and highly recommend it. It was really convenient to have a private car and we managed to see many sights as a result. The tour guide/ driver was polite and punctual, and gave us good suggestions at each spot to enhance our experience.
Good Job!

Enjoyed the tour, driver was very accommodating and helped out a lot, although room for improvement is lunch suggestion. But overall good service.
