Nikko National Park
A dramatic landscape of mountains, lakes and intricate temples give this park its character
With a long history as an important area for both Shinto and Buddhist mountain worship, Nikko National Park is home to some beautifully decorated spiritual sites, including Toshogu, the country’s most lavish shrine.
Often considered one of the most spectacular parks in the country, Nikko National Park is undoubtedly one of the most diverse, with iconic mountains, active volcanoes, lakes, wetlands, waterfalls and valleys all offering spectacular views at every turn. Thrill-seekers should take part in the park's stand-up paddleboarding, snowshoe expeditions and cycle tours.
