The park was beautiful, I loved the Nikko Toshogu Shrine, the carvings were magnificent. It was such a pleasure to get away from the noise and people of Tokyo for a day and ensure the beauty of the mountains. Pure pleasure. I am definitely glad...More

We spent 3 days in Nikko and that was not enough. Everywhere we went at Okunikko we saw many groups (mostly senior citizens) trekking the trials. There are many here and one can spend days doing them all. Will be back to come do them....More

We were here end of May and it was not too busy. A good network of busses helps to get around and do several hikes without having an own car. Beautiful area!

Nikko is a small city in Japan’s Tochigi Prefecture, in the mountains north of Tokyo. It’s the site of Toshogu, the famed Shinto shrine established in 1617 as a lavish memorial for Tokugawa Ieyasu, founding ruler of the Tokugawa shogunate, or Edo Period. The shrine...More

This was perhaps the best day tour we booked in the whole trip. Everything done through Viator. English speaking guide. Breath taking views and feeling one with nature. Make sure you have a camera and are ready to climb 207+ steps. The lunch was delicious...More

Impressive compound of temples and monuments . I would suggest the day tour from Keio hotel in English . Travel time and tour takes up the entire day from Tokyo

Our plan was to get “away from the lights and crowd” of Tokyo and headed north to the world heritage Shrines and Temples of Nikko. A sacred site tucked away in the Nikko National Park. It was about a 2 hour drive into the rural...More

The main point with temples was nice, but that's all. The lake and the falls did not impress me whatsoever. Of course, I must confess that I am not so keen on Buddhism or Shintoism and their temples. All this dragon obsession leaves me aloof.

Nikko is a MUST SEE for everyone. The shrines and sights here are incredibly well maintained and the mountain scenery is wonderful. It’s easy to see why the Shogun fell in love with this place. It has a spiritual feel to it. Mid March temperatures...More

From Nikkō take the bus to Yumoto. Nice hike around the lake then Yudaki falls and along to the river and through the moor. Interesting hiking well indicated and maintained. Board the bus again on the main road.

Hi I strongly recommend to be as early as possible in Nikko as it is always extremely crowded, especially the Tosho gu temple. There are tourist offices, as well as bus stops at both JR and Tobu Rail stations. Here my... More
