We went up the mountains from Nikko at the start of March. As we got up higher there was more snow about. One problem is that at this time of the year some of the attractions such as the Ropewlk are closed.

Nikko is a must when in Japan. The number of attractions such as Kegon Falls, Lake Chuzenji, Ryuzu Falls etc make this a MUST VISIT destination. Enjoyed Nikko very much and Highly Recommended.

You can get excellent maps of the local walking trails from the tourist office. There is very good bus coverage to take you to the trails. Spectacular waterfalls, and beautiful mountains. Make sure to wear long trousers as we got bitten by insects.

Quite a far bus ride from Tokyo but this UNESCO World Heritage Site is worth the visit. It is quite large so you need hustle a bit to see the entire place given a short time given by the tour.

This view is good and we can enjoy the weather. But the transportation is not so good. We need to wait almost 5 hours in the open space and cold weather and no other option to back to the station. Need more solution for transportation

It is winter now. You would expect snow in Nikko by early Jan 2019 and the temperature ranges from -5C to 5C there. Japan is always nice for travelers and it depends on what you expect. No flowers nor autumn leaves by now... More

I‘m not aware that there is a free bus pass. You can buy different passes depending on the area you’d like to visit and the length of your stay in Nikkō.
