Nice scenery and it was a good rest stop between 鬼怒川温泉 and 中禅寺湖 area. Lots of bikers and cyclists riding on the roads leading to the place.

At an altitude of 1,400 m above sea level, Senjogahara covers the plateau between Chuzenjiko and Yumoto Onsen. It is particularly beautiful during the autumn leaf season in October when the marshland's grasses turn into a reddish yellow and the larch trees into a shiny...More

Pathway to walk. Very beautiful but also cold and windy. We went in November. There are small eateries where we had warm Yasai Soba (Vegetable buckwheat noodles) before our walk.

赤沼から湯滝まで歩きました。戦場ヶ原の木道の両側には広々とした美しい自然が広がり、ここが特別な場所であることは歩き始めてすぐわかりました。とても大きな滝である、湯滝の脇の石段を登ると湯ノ湖がありました。それから、湯ノ湖の岸を歩き、対岸の宿泊宿につきました。四時間ぐらいはかかりました。宿の温泉には野天風呂もあり良かったです。 We walked from Akanuma to Yudaki. I realized soon after I started to walk that this is an extraordinary walking trail. I saw really breathtaking views and a river along side of the wooden trails. Yudaki is a big fall. We climbed the stone...More

Would recommend for anyone heading to nikko. Beautiful surrounds and clear paths. Great bird life. Recommend booking somewhere that has a good host though as the bus up from nikko can take hours if you pick the incorrect time!!!

If you enjoy nature, it’s a must do if you can afford the time. We caught a bus 🚌 to stop 44 (yutaki-iriguchi) on the Yumoto Onsen route and made our way south. We started at yukaki falls, which was breathtaking. There is a wooden...More

Very nice area to walk around. You cannot get lost as it is all well described in the hiking map you get at the tourist office in Nikko. Many bus stops around.

It takes about 3 hours from Tokyo to Nikko Station and 2 hours from Nikko Station to Senjogahara. It is possible to have a day trip if you leave Tokyo early morning. However, I recommend you should stay for one night. Yumoto... More
