Let's find out.

UNESCO World Hertiage Site

A complex comprising Nikko Toshogu Shrine, Futarasan Shrine, and Rinnoji Temple, the area officially became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999. This sacred and religious site is renowned for its beautiful natural surroundings and impressive and decorative architecture.

Hot Springs

Whether you are looking to treat your skin in the natural geothermal waters of Nikko or just want to relax your muscles amidst a backdrop of picturesque landscapes, the hot springs of Nikko await your visit.

Mesmerizing Foliage

The dense forests enveloping Nikko transform into a breathtaking spectacle when the leaves change colors, showcasing fiery reds, amber yellows, and vivid oranges throughout the region. This stunning display crafts a truly unforgettable sight.

Nikko Toshogu Shrine

As the mausoleum built for the shogun who ended Japan's warring states period, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is known for its lavish decorations, including structures covered in gold leaf.


Intentionally designed to be less grandiose than Toshogu Shrine, this mausoleum still impresses with its magnificent gold leaf-covered gates and its structures combining elements taken from both Shintoism and Buddhism.

Rinnoji Temple

Housing many historical artifacts and three impressive Buddhist statues, this temple was a significant spiritual center from which Buddhist philosophy spread across Japan.
