A hiking trail with good steps and clear signages. If you hike through the 1445 steps the view up there is just extraordinary. We had wonderful hike during the winter with some snow fall. The facility is in good condition and staffs are very friendly.

Visited this place in mid-July, and they have orange daylily along the hiking path. Amazing and Beautiful!! The flower season is from June to mid-July. Don’t miss this fairytale-like place when you visit Nikko.

It takes about 30min to climb to the top but the view is nice and you get a bit of exercise also. There is no vending machine or shop at the top, so if you want to eat or drink something, buy that before you start climbing.
