Nikko and Tochigi Travel Guide

Nikko and Tochigi Prefecture | Travel Guide

Don’t say ‘kekko’ before you’ve seen Nikko (don’t say ‘I’m good’ until you’ve seen Nikko) is Nikko’s slogan for good reasons; one of Japan’s most beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites can be found here. The ancient Shinto shrines, mausoleums, and Buddhist temples are incredibly impressive, and the surrounding countryside is wonderful for hiking. This is our travel guide to give you some ideas on what to see in the area.

Furthermore, Togichi prefecture, in which Nikko is situated, boasts good natural hot springs and ski resorts. It is also known for producing good sake, so you can imagine why the area makes for a good trip destination in Japan.
