All reviews the bus swan boats boat trip above sea level early spring surrounded by mountains autumn leaves small town hairpin bends fresh air nikko station nikko national park beautiful scenery worth the effort the main road visit nikko day pass
We visited the lake because of a blog that wrote about it that mentioned most people miss this when they visit Nikko.. Perhaps if one spends 2+ days in Nikko, I would visit this area but we took a day trip from Tokyo and if...More
We took a day trip from Nikko to this area to see Lake Chuzenji and the Kegon Falls. The lake itself was pretty but the area itself would likely be more lively in warmer weather. Other than the lake and the falls, there was not...More
If you like the thought of a lake in the mountains, this is the place to be. When we went, there weren't any boats in the lake, but there are facilities for people to rent swan boats or ride larger ferries through the water. We...More
Excellent tour and the transport arrangements organised by Toshi worked well so that we looked at much more than would otherwise have been possible, including cherry blossom which was a great thrill to see so late in May. Toshi was a very good guide from...More
We caught the bus from Nikko up to Yukono Lake and then back here. The 4 day pass gets you all the way out and back. The Lake is very pretty and worth stopping to admire although you can equally view it from the bus...More
We got off at the ropeway on the way up and did the round trip. Views were quite good of falls but a long way away. One hour Cruise on the lake was great and reasonably priced. Even Chillean red wine we bought was good...More
Spectacular views & fresh air…no wonder why many embassies have their villas in this area. We saw very little tourists during our visit.
We did not have too much time, but every minute spent there was unforgettable.
In the off-season this small town is very quiet but it can offer a lot if it is good weather. We hired bikes from in front of the information centre (who are very helpful) and spent a lovely day biking up to the falls and...More
One of the highest lake in Japan, Lake Chuzenji is such a stunning place with tranquility, beautiful view, lovely village as well as people, culture and many interesting spots around there. Where you can enjoy their local natural onsen and mineral water too.
There are two train stations in Nikki, JR Nikki and Tobu Nikki. These two stations are very close, just 2 minutes walking. You can buy travel bus tickets from both stations. The bus will stop at both stations. Don’t worry... More
There are two train stations in Nikki, JR Nikki and Tobu Nikki. These two stations are very close, just 2 minutes walking. You can buy travel bus tickets from both stations. The bus will stop at both stations. Don’t worry. Just ask the guy in the ticket office. He/she will tell you everything. Study the bus ticket closely. There are numbers representing bus stops. Even if you don’t know Japanese, you can still check the bus number of the next stop. You can also find the bus schedule at the bus stop back to Nikki.The bus travel time from Nikko to Chuzenji Lake is around 45 minutes, very very punctual. From Chuzenji Lake to Nikki, another 45 minutes. As I remember, there is a train from Tobu Nikki station to Shinjuku of Tokyo every 30 minutes.

There are many onsens nearby, you can find one for example at the end of a bus line. Sorry i dont remember which i visited couple of month ago but they can help at the bus station at Nikko. I recommend search for the one that fits best to your taste and budget. Dont miss the boat trip on the lake, well worth!
