Nikko has been a well-known center of Shinto and Buddhist mountain worship since Toshogu was built in 1617 and Nikko National Park continues to offer scenic, mountainous landscapes, lakes, waterfalls. However, there are still many unfamiliar places of odd sight in Nikko. One of them is Kanmangafuchi abyss. This trip is to visit not only popular sight-seeing spots but also spot of odd sight.


Feel free to personalize this offer with Nao.

  • Kanmangafuchi Abyss was created by an eruption of nearby Mt. Nantai. This gorge, near the center of Nikko is only a few hundred meters long and can be enjoyed from a pleasant riverside walking trail.

  • Tamosawa is a park in Nikko city. Originally this building and garden were founded for the villa for the emperor Taishio and now it is opened to the public. This is only one left intact among villas constructed after Meiji area.

  • Toshogu Shrine is the final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate that ruled Japan for about 260 years. You can enjoy the lavishly decorated shrine complex consists of more than a dozen buildings set in a beautiful forest, countless wood carvings and large amounts of gold leaf decorated buildings.

  • Taiyuin is the mausoleum of the third Tokugawa shogun, Iemitsu, the grandson of Ieyasu. The Taiyuinbyo features a mix of Buddhist and Shinto structures. It was common for places of worship to contain elements of both religions.
