Beautiful forrest park with some great shrines and temples, but even if you won't visit them it's a beautiful and majestic park.
Nikko National Park is one of my favorite stops in Japan, as far as the nature side goes. This place is absolutely beautiful and very peaceful, too. I arrived mid-morning and stayed until late afternoon, keeping myself busy with all of the sights within the park. Pack a lunch and have a picnic!
I thought the best way to enjoy this park was to do so in the area immediately around the Toshogu Shrine. A great walking day is to start from the Nikko town center, walk past the Shinkyo, up to the Toshogu, and around the park to enjoy the nature. It can be a very serene and pleasant experience.
