Day trip from Yokohama to Nikko

We are staying at JAL Kannai Yokohama and would like to do a day trip to Nikko National Park around August 8,on our own. Exactly how do we get there, how much does it cost? Once we get to Nikko, is there a bus to the National Park, and once in the park, can one get on and off buses at various locations. Or must we use a guided tour? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - thank you.

You don't need a guide, you can do it yourself. There are many options to get to Nikko and cost depends on which you choose: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3805.html

You can use www.hyperdia.com to see even more options. Just plug in your information on when you want to go from Kannai station to Nikko station.

Take JR line to Yokohama Station and transfer to Keikyu line to Asakusa.

Transfer to Tobu asakusa and take Tobu line.

ALL NIKKO PASS is usefull.

Thank you for all the info. It is very helpful., though at first glance seems a bit confusing-too many choices!

While we are in Yokohama, we are planning on visiting Hakone one day and Nikko one day. So, we only have the 2 days to see both. Is there any type of short term transportation pass (bus or train)that would save us money even if we only use it 2-3 days.? ( We also have to get transportation back and forth from Narita airport )

Thanks in advance for the help!

This was helpful. If I understand correctly, I could buy a 3 day JR Kanto Area Pass in Yokohama, and visit Nikko on one day, and Hakone one day. This sounds like the best deal. Then I would need to only buy a bus pass at each location. Does this sound correct?

Thanks to all!

Note that the Kanto Area Pass only covers JR East trains. That means going to Nikko, you can get to Nikko station itself. You will then need to buy bus tickets to head into Nikko proper or go up Lake Chuzenji.

For Hakone, you can take Tokaido Line to Odawara but not Shinkansen since this bullet train line is not run by JR East. Once at Odawara, buy the Hakone Free Pass from Odakyu Rail without the Tokyo transfers.

You will still come out ahead with the Kanto Area Pass. Use your third day of the pass wisely.
