Located in the Japanese region of Kanto, on the main island of Honshu, the stunning Nikko National Park will surprise you with its beautiful mountains, lakes and rich flora and fauna. Join me on this 3-day guided hike and I’ll let you in to all of its secrets!

During this 3-day, 2-night itinerary, we’ll cover some of Nikko National Park’s highlights. These include: Mt Nikko Shirane, Mt Nantai and the Senjogahara plateau.

Nikko National Park is located just 2 hours away from Tokyo. It is also easily accessible. Therefore, this 3-day guided hike could fit very well into your vacation in Japan. Don’t hesitate to contact me to find out about dates!

We will start with a hike around the Senjogahara plateau. There, we will get to appreciate some of its amazing scenery. Its beautiful waterfalls are unforgettable! We’ll walk for around 5 hours on this first day. The terrain here is quite flat and suitable for everyone.

Climbing to the summit of Mt Nantai on the second day will also be a special experience. Our hike starts with a visit to the shrine at the mountain gate, where we will receive a “charm” for our ascent. The route to the top takes around 6 hours to complete.

From the summit, you’ll enjoy views of the Chuzenji Lake. And, on a clear day, you may even see the Pacific coast 100 km away. Take into account that although the hike presents no technical difficulties, the terrain is quite steep and requires a good physical condition.

The third day is reserved for Mt Nikko Shirane. During our hike to the top, you’ll enjoy the ever-changing scenery of Japanese landscapes. From wild flowers to lush forests and culminating in a majestic volcanic lake at the top, the sheer beauty of the scenery will leave you in awe! We’ll hike for around 7 hours on this third day.

This 3-day hiking program in Nikko National Park is ideal for intermediate hikers. You also need to have a very good physical condition to handle some long days.

This hiking program is a great way to get off-the-beaten track. It’s also a good opportunity to get to know Japan and its culture in the company of a local guide. So don’t hesitate to contact me to book your hike!
