A gateway to a sprawling and diverse national park, a center of Shinto spiritualism and place of Buddhist worship, an emblem of the riches and dominance of the Tokugawa shogunate: Nikko means many things to many people.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Nikko: Utsunomiya (Oya temple, Oya Stone Museum, & more), Nasu-machi (Minamigaoka Ranch, Mt. Nasu, & more) and Shimogo-machi (Ouchijuku & Tonohetsuri). Pack the 29th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Edo Wonderland Nikko Edomura. Spend the 12th (Tue) exploring nature at Oze National Park. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Nikko Tosho-gu, take in the views from Shinkyo Bridge, contemplate the long history of Taiyuimbyo Shrine, and take in the dramatic scenery at Yudaki Falls.
