Kyoto doesn't have the monopoly when it comes to cultural Japan; there are more places to travel in the Land of the Rising Sun for those who want to learn and get a glimpse of Japan's heritage and past. One of them is the city of Nikko in Tochigi prefecture, one hundred forty kilometers from the capital city of Tokyo.
What awaits you here? Nikko is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to temples, shrines, and gardens that date way back to Japan's first emperors. There are many temples in the city and the most popular is the Toshogu Shrine. The shrine is the mausoleum of Tokugawa Ieyasu -- founder and first shogun of the Tokogawa Shogunate. The Tokogawa is one of the longest and most significant shogunate in Japanese history. His mausoleum is a feast for the eyes -- it is lavishly decorated with impeccable designs.
Another must-visit in Nikko is the Rinnoji Temple. The Tamoza Villa is another famous attraction being the former summer residence of Japan's Imperial family. Nikko does more than bring you back to the past, it is also an outdoor destination. The city and its surrounding areas offer hiking; trekking; or simply communing with nature courtesy of its mountains, lakes, and hot springs.
Nikko is one of the Japan's most visited places and international tourists should not shy away from this destination. Even frugal travelers and backpackers must include Nikko on their list to visit while in Japan. There are quite a few affordable accommodations in the city. Hostels in Nikko have good locations. Many of them are within minutes of walking from train stations. Hostels in Nikko also offer different amenities -- some even have air conditioners and restaurants, while others offer basic services like a communal kitchen for you to create your own meals.
Many hostels have Japanese-style rooms and these are perfect to have that holistic Japanese culture experience. There are also hostels in Nikko that offer Western-style rooms, like those country-style rooms. Staying in these Nikko hostels will not only give you savings, but let you meet other travelers. Prior to your stay, call and reserve in advance. Some Nikko hostels do not accept credit cards, so inquire about this prior to your travel.

Nikko Park Lodge
"Very disappointed - I booked a room at the mountain lodge for the 31st of December (today), and have been told to go to the one closest to the station between 3 and 5pm in order to call the car which will accompany us to the mountain lodge. When I arrived at the one closest to the station, I've been told that they've made a "mistake" and that I can't have a room at the mountain, but there's one for me at the station one. I was really...
"Best hostel I've stayed in - Don't let the relatively high (for a hostel) price scare you off, you will completely get your money's worth. The owner makes fantastic western breakfast that you'd pay well over 1000¥ for at a restaurant, and offers a shuttle service to and from the hostel's relatively remote (and absolutely beautiful) location. On top of this there is no charge for amenities such as bath towels, and the Internet is free and...
Nikko Guesthouse Sumica
"The best place I stayed at in Japan - I just returned from a 3-week trip to Japan, and Nikko Guesthouse Sumica was the first place I stayed at. I stayed at some pretty great places thereafter, but they still fell shot of the hospitality I enjoyed at Sumica. Sato and Kumiko, the proprietors take such a personal interest in their guests, and basically treat you like family. They really go out of their way to be helpful and make your experience...

Nikko Travel Tips & Suggestions
It's so amazing. I loved it.
I love Nikko. I have been there twice to visit my wife's family. Nikko is beautiful and the Toshogu Shrines are amazing. Definitely take the drive up to Lake Chuzenji. Any visit to Japan should include a trip to Nikko.
