Today we want to share with you something special:
Enjoy this complete Guide & all you need to know before visit Nikko National Park!
Where to stay
Nikko has no shortage of accommodation options, from budget hostels to five-star hotels and Japanese ryokan. The best areas to stay in include Nikko Town, Chuzenjiko Onsen, Yumoto Onsen, and Kinugawa Onsen, all with extensive facilities and plenty to do.
If you are short on time, staying in Nikko town is ideal, as you can easily reach the main sights and the train station. If you want to spend some time rejuvenating in a natural environment with easy access to hiking trails, one of the onsen towns will be the best option. Some of our top hosting recommendations include:
Nikko Hoshino Yado: In Nikko town, a short walk from the famous Nikko Toshogu Shrine, this mid-range Japanese inn also features an onsen.
Shikisai Hotel: A traditional yet luxurious ryokan inn in Chuzenjiko Onsen, surrounded by dense forest and waterfalls. There are private hot springs available, as well as exquisite dining experiences.
Okunikko Park Lodge Miyama: A lodge with stunning mountain views and easy access to the slopes of Yumoto Ski Resort, Japanese breakfasts and dinners are served, and there is access to a hot spring bath.
How to get there
Easily accessible by train, the Shinkansen bullet train goes directly from Tokyo Station to Nikko Station in about an hour and a half.
Once there, it is easy to get around the park using public transport and the regular buses that run between the train station and the park. You can pick up a Nikko pass for all areas at the tourist information center, which covers all bus trips to and from the park.
The tourist bus will take you to the main places, but many people also choose to rent a car. There are small car parks near the most popular places and car rental shops can be found near Nikko station.
Tips for your visit
- The shrines get crowded in the afternoon, especially the Toshogu Shrine, so get out early and visit these areas first if you want to take pictures.
- Make sure to bring some cash with you when you arrive at the train station to use in the park.
- Rain can be sudden in Nikko, so bring a light raincoat at any time of the year.
- Just a few minutes walk from the train station, you will find the Nikko Tourist Information Center, which will provide you with free walking brochures and other useful information.
