What to Expect
We enjoy hiking along the coast line of Lake Chuzenji or in Senjogahara wetland which is registered under the Ramsar Convention as “Oku-Nikko-shitsugen” (the wetland in Highland Nikko) and cruising in the lake. Spring (May to Jun) and Autumn (Sept. to Oct.) are good seasons for this tour. In Spring, you can enjoy a variety of flowers and fresh young leaves. In Autumn, you should be fascinated by autumn leaves as well as schools of red-colored kokanee salmon coming up into a stream from the lake for spawning.
From Nikko station, we take a bus to Oku-Nikko, or Highland Nikko, after lunch we hike along the coast of Lake Chuzenji or in Senjogahara wetland, and cruise in the lake.
