Marvel at the shrines and temples of Nikko, munch on Utsunomiya gyoza and play in nature
Nestled between the Kanto plain and the central mountains of Japan, Tochigi is an accessible peek into rural and ancient Japan. Nikko is home to some of the country’s most magnificent temples and shrines, spread over three complexes. Stop in Utsunomiya for ultra-famous gyoza, or the hot spring resort of Kinugawa Onsen for a dip and a river cruise. Lake Chuzenji is a picturesque backdrop for a variety of outdoor activities.
