1.There is a train to return at 19:00?
2.Is it not worth and too short time to travel there only 1 day if I purchase this pass?
3.I'm from thailand and hope to touch some snow.Is it high possible to see the snow at that time(3-jan).

    We went to Nikko this year, we took the first train just before 7 am, and return at around 5-6 pm. The time was fine, we got to see everything, but didnt use that pass since we had the 7 day pass. We were there end of March and there was snow on the ground.

    The pass is usually cheaper if you go to all the places that they include.

    For a day, you'll have enough time for the temples, but not sure if you'll have enough time to see the waterfalls, the mountains and the lake beyond Nikko town.

    If you go, I'm not sure if it's worth the all day pass. It would probably be a rushed visit. When I visited, I drove up and returned late. The main temples can take all day to visit, so I wouldn't plan to visit the lake and waterfall in the mountains. It's a beautiful drive, but due to winter, you may have a little trouble getting up there.

    If you do want to see the lake and waterfall, do it early (first thing) and you can do the temples afterwards.

    We got so see everything in one day including the waterfalls and we didnt rush. Just make sure you take the first train, and do the waterfalls first then the temples
