Nikko Kirifuri Highland, Kisuge-daira Park is located around 30 minutes' drive from the Nikko Interchange of the Nikko Utsunomiya Road, via the Kirifuri-ohashi Bridge and Kirifuri Highland Road. The Park is a highland area at an elevation of around 1,200 meters on the slopes of Mt. Akanagi. It is a treasure-house of alpine plants; it is particularly famous for Brown Dwarf Day Lily flowers, around 260,000 of which can be seen in bloom from late June through into mid-July. Kisuge-daira, the area where the flowers grow, also has hiking trails for visitors to use. Starting in late October, there is beautiful autumn foliage, and in winter visitors can enjoy skiing. There is also the Nikko Kirifuri Kogen Chirorin Village leisure facility, which is ideal for both couples and families.
