A beautiful escape to nature just outside of Tokyo.

Most visitors head to Nikko for a day of temple hopping, but Nikko has so much more to offer. Get a little further out and you have amazing hiking and camping. Up in the mountains there a little towns where the culture of living of the land still thrives and you can try delicious meals of freshly caught game and veggies gathered from nature. Plus, hot springs!

Highly recommended during the autumn leaves season.


This national park in the Kanto region is spread out over four prefectures. Popular with walkers, hikers, skilled or not, you’ll find yourself surrounded by beautiful scenery. Visiting the park in autumn is especially pretty, when you can see all the leaves turning from green to orange and red. This UNESCO World Heritage site is home to many striking buildings and intricate shrines which makes a trip to Nikko well worth a visit. It takes around 2 hours to get to Nikko from Asakusa Station in Tokyo.
