We loved this national park and hiking to see several waterfalls. The trails are in excellent condition and there are amenities such as a tea house at the larger stops on the trail.

We did this as a day trip from Tokyo, and loved how different it was to the bustling city. It's the Japan of old that you imagine, with beautiful temples hidden in woods, and fantastic hikes. I cannot recommend coming to Nikko enough.

The Nikko National Park is a vast land covering the UNESCO World Heritage Toshogu-temple. It’s a good 1 day trip from Tokyo visiting the lovely temples and the waterfalls. Truly a majestic place to appreciate nature and Japanese History.

We spent 3 days in Nikko and that was not enough. Everywhere we went at Okunikko we saw many groups (mostly senior citizens) trekking the trials. There are many here and one can spend days doing them all. Will be back to come do them....More
