What is Tochigi?

Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi's capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.

Getting Around

Fifty minutes north on the Tohoku Shinkansen brings you into the heart of Tochigi prefecture, first stopping at the prefectural capital, Utsunomiya, followed by Nasushiobara in the north. The inevitable trip to Nikko can be made from Utsunomiya, just a 45-minute train ride on the JR Nikko Line. Buses are often the most economical way to travel, with several options from Tokyo to Tochigi, including a limousine bus directly from Haneda Airport to Utsunomiya Station for 3,600 yen in three hours.
