overview icon Overview

Nikko was a renowned Buddhist-Shinto religious center. Two shrines and one temple are registered as World Heritage sites, dating back to the 8th century. Let’s get out of Tokyo and feel the Edo shoguns’ great power by visiting the grand temples!

overview icon Highlights

  • Visit to the most famous Toshogu shrine, and Futarasan Shrine which is thought to bring good luck for establishing good connection with deities, partners, friends.
  • You can explore the nature, breath fresh air, walking the forested paths. Enjoyable place in all 4 seasons
  • You can taste local yuba or tofu milk (bean curd sheet) dish for lunch.
  • Let’s take a tea/coffee break made of sacred water at a tea house in the precinct of temple. The water is said to be good for eyes and skin.
  • You can buy a talisman with the Tokugawa crest as a souvenir.

Important Information

Please wear walking shoes. Especially if you want to go to the grave site of Ieyasu, you have to climb long stone stairs.

There are not many places to eat or rest in the temple or shrine areas.

Experiencing lunch box is also very fun, a very Japanese thing.

Strongly recommend to buy and reserve train tickets in advance.
