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.

This is such a scenic place relatively close to Tokyo, yet you will need to plan a good day away for it! And be sure to be camera ready! Ideally Autumn with the magical color display by nature! (Visited November)

The entire park is very walkable we did it in half day including visiting all the shrines and museums within. Not a difficult walk at all and scenery demands we walk slowly to enjoy and take in the crisp winter air and lovely sun. On...More

Beautiful are with several Shrines. Access from Tokyo is easy, if you take the limited express tobu line from asakusa - worth the higher price. When there easy bus access to the world heritage park. Most temples/shrines and the bridge are pay-to-see, but the outside...More
