With its serene lakes, mountainous forests, and picturesque waterfalls, Nikko National Park is one of Japan’s most stunning nature reserves, situated on the incredibly scenic—and hard to reach on your own—Romantic Road. On this exciting tour, escape the bustle of Tokyo with an invigorating day in the Japanese countryside, including a visit to a spectacularly decorated UNESCO World Heritage­–listed Shinto shrine.

As the reviews state, nantai is no joke. Unrelenting steepness from bottom to top. It took 6 of us 2 hours to summit and was definitely one of the harder climbs I've done. Views are all worth it when you finally finish.

Used the reliable bus service from Nikko to bus stop ‘Chuzenji Ibsen - stop 26’ from there it was a 10 minute walk with lake Chuzenji on your left where you will find the start of the walk inside of the shrine. It’s a 500 yen donation to start. From here you are confronted with a very steep incline from start to finish (about 2.5 - 4 hours) to the top, with challenging surfaces including rocks, mud and steps along the way. The path is clearly marked and well populated so it’s easily navigated. Once at the top though the views are outstanding on a clear day, and Mt Fuji can be seen in the distance towering above the clouds. Good walking boots, 3-5 litres of water and some food at the top definitely required. Some poles for the descent would have been handy too, as it is very steep. A hard walk but the end result is an excellent one, would recommend to anyone with a decent fitness level.

JR日光駅のみどりの窓口 または 東武日光駅で 中禅寺温泉フリーパスを買うとお得です。 二荒山神社中宮祠でバスを降ります。 社務所で500円を納めて、登山開始です。 はじめは階段を上ります。 樹林帯を歩きます。 3合目から4合目は舗装道路です。 岩が出てきます。 登山靴の着用をお勧めします。トレッキングポールもあった方が良いと思います。 途中トイレはありません。 It is advantageous to buy a Chuzenji Onsen free pass at JR Nikko Station's counter or Tobu Nikko Station.Get off the bus at Chugushi Pass at Futarasan Shrine.Pay 500 yen at the shrine office and start climbing.First up the stairs.Walk the forest zone.The 3rd to 4th stations are paved roads.A rock comes out.We recommend wearing mountaineering shoes. I think it's better to bring a trekking pole.There is no toilet on the way.
