Welcome dear travel fans! I've been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and will be happy to share this passion with you.

Additional information

Explore the beautiful attractions around Nikko, a place of natural beauty and World Heritage Sites. It is an amazing park with a lot of things to see.

There are 3 sections of the Park that you can choose to visit. And you must take a Tobu Bus to go to those places.

 

Section 1 is from Nikko station to Bus stop #26.

Section 2 is from Bus stop #26 to 35

Section 3 is from Bus stop 35 to beyond

 

Most people go to section 1 with lots of sightseeing like shrines, temples and a big lake (where you can board a boat cruise)

 

Section 2 and 3 are less people but more romantic if you are a couple and want more romantic time together.

 

What to expect there?

  • Discover the temples and shrines of Nikko – historical and architectural masterpieces: Nikko Toshogu Shrine, Futarayama-jinja Shrine, and Rinno-ji Temple
  • Wash away all your tiredness with a dip in the Kinugawa Hot Spring
  • Admire an ultimate beauty of nature and Kegon no-taki Falls (97 m high) in particular
  • Take iconic pictures with Setoaikyo Canyon
  • Walk around Shiobara Gorge
  • Enjoy the great view on the mountains (Chausu, Asahi, Sambonyari) surrounded by forests

 

Opening hours: from 10 am to 5 pm between March & October, from 10 am to 4:30 pm between November and February 

It’s highly recommended to get an early train from Tokyo as many visitors visit Nikko late in the morning.

 

Admission: Free but you will have to pay for each site separately

We recommend purchasing the Nikko World Heritage Area Pass that will cover the round trip from Tokyo and unlimited travel on buses in central Nikko and on trains between Nikko and the Kinugawa Onsen area. The pass is valid for 2 days and costs 2,120 yen. Buy here
