“Breathing space !”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

After spending a week in Tokyo , the amazing natural sceneries at the Nikko Park provided the much needed breathing space .

Together with my wonderful local friend Tomoyuki I experienced a very quite day of hiking , listening to waterfalls and relaxing at a Onsen .

If you have the chance to go here and love to be outdoors and just admire the beauty of mother nature . . . GO ! Just GO ! You won't regret it .

“Impressive forest and water views”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We hiked about six hours in the park. The views are wonderful and the waterfalls are gorgeous. The hiking trails are used by people of all ages, although some of the areas require slippery, two-foot high steps.

“Worth the effort. A highlight.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Sitting in our Tokyo hotel room and reading reviews on this area it was with some trepidation that we decided to spend our last full day in Japan taking the shinkansen and local train to Nikko to view the park and temples.

A short tourist bus ride from Nikko station got us to the main temple area and we set off up the hill, on the way passing some of the most magnificent temples and shrines we were to see on our entire journey through Japan.

Take time to admire the ornate carvings and craftsmanship which are stunning

Even though some of the structures were undergoing renovation it was hard not to be impressed by the ancient buildings and statues that dot the area in between the large area of forests.

Be prepared for steps, steps and more steps but the effort in reaching the top of the hill and the upper most temple is worth it.

As always there were crowds but because the area is so large this wasn't really a problem.

This was a highlight of our trip and well worth the effort.

“Best of the Best Historical Site”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

UNESCO awarded this shrine complex Historic status in 1999. This is by far the most intricate and beautiful of all the shrine complexes in Japan. Even though this is a sacred areas, vendor stations fill the area with talismans, charms, and other icons--in a very tasteful way.
