What a great place to visit, just two hours from Tokyo. Cool, fresh mountain air and waterfalls. Unforgettable!

We visited Nikko in early October 2014 on a day trip from Tokyo, just as the leaves were starting to turn, and were completely blown away by the stunning beauty of the place. The first thing to say is don't necessarily trust TripAdvisor's map reference for Taiyuinbyo temple. Quite by chance (and in ignorance of the area) I used the... More

I visited Nikko in the mid 1980's, my guide was a cab driver, cost me about $90 for the day at that time. I found the park to be awe inspiring, very strong spiritual presence, a wonderful peace. If I ever have the opportunity to return to Japan I will definitely go back to Nikko

We planned on spending 2 days in Nikko and decided to travel there by Tobu train. Went to the Asakusa station and spoke with the sales clerks. The 2-day pass is not based on 48 hours. For example our plan is to depart by 9am on the 19, and depart by 9am on the 21. The sales clerk said this... More

i live close by so I have taken many trips there in the last 5 years. I went there the first time 33 years ago and I miss all the crafts people that are no longer there. Age and price has killed the craft. They used to make beautiful wood products from the local trees/ Still this is a must... More

When you get far from the street where you cannot hear the noise of the cars, you feel in a different world... you can visit severals famous shrines all at walking distance, although, unfortunately, some of them are closed because under restoration (but they didn't change the ticket prices...).

Really worth spending the whole day or two in Nikko, not only it has the shrines and cultural heritage sites but the waterfalls are absolutely amazing. Make sure you get the hiking map and take the bus to the falls, then go for 1 hour hike along the lake and you will end up agh the cascade of waterfalls. Really... More

After spending a week in Tokyo , the amazing natural sceneries at the Nikko Park provided the much needed breathing space . Together with my wonderful local friend Tomoyuki I experienced a very quite day of hiking , listening to waterfalls and relaxing at a Onsen . If you have the chance to go here and love to be outdoors... More

We hiked about six hours in the park. The views are wonderful and the waterfalls are gorgeous. The hiking trails are used by people of all ages, although some of the areas require slippery, two-foot high steps.
