      Ciao! My husband and I will spend new year's eve in Nikko. We would like to spend it in an authentic japanese restaurant, looking for great food, not looking for parties or fashionabe places. Something real, real japanese style and food. We fear tourist traps by looking at the usual websites... Any suggestion? Grazie, thanks! Mary

    • Trains to Nikko

      by queue1114 Online Now May 20, 2011 at 11:15 PM

      I find the trains in Japan to be very confusing. I have found an English schedule link online, but it seems to have all the names wrong. Does anyone know (have heard of) the "Nasuno line" that runs between Saitama and Utsunomiya? I think it's the "Bullet" train, but I'm not sure. Also, there is (according to my link) a train that covers 80KM in 12 minutes. Is that for real?

      I`m trying to locate the bus schedule for the bus from the JR train station to Ryuzu Falls for November, and back again to the train station. Can someone assist in locating an english website for the schedules, or (if you can read Japanese) find the information on the tobu-bus.com website? thanks!

      Tobu World/ monkey mountains bus service

      by Dean&Vanessa Online Now May 12, 2010 at 3:10 AM

      Hi

      The Nikko part of our Japan trip is coming together,

      but we were looking at doing Tobu World and the kinugawa hot springs ropeway/monkey mountains.
      The only information that we can find is that monkey mountain is about a 30 minute walk from kinugawa Onsen Station. If we do Tobu World first this will make it a 45 minute walk, which could be painful with a 3 year old.
      We cannot find any bus information to get between the two places.

      Any information will be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance

      Hi

      We think we have decided to have a couple of nights in Nikko. But we are having a nightmare trying to find budget accomodation in Nikko. All the websites are in Japanese. Does anybody know of any budget accomodation near the JR Station or a good English Website that has Nikko accomodation.

      We also have a similar question for Odawara/Hakone.

      Many Thanks

    • Question about the Tobu passes

      by maestramele Online Now Oct 2, 2009 at 11:21 AM

      I'm arriving in Nikko for 4 days in late October from Utsunomiya, not Tokyo. Can I get an All-Nikko pass to use the unlimited bus rides and just the one-way train back to Tokyo, or would Tobu invalidate my pass if I don't start out from their Asakusa station?

      If I can do this, can I obtain all the necessary pass validations either over the internet or IN Nikko, since I will NOT be going to Tokyo before Nikko. (Am going straight from Narita by bus to Utsunomiya.)

      Is it possible to get to Nikko from Narita Airport without going through Tokyo?
      Is there, perhaps, a direct bus?

      If I rent a car in Narita, how long it will take me to reach Nikko?

      Does it make sense to rent a car for a day or two in Nikko instead of going by buses to onsens and places to see? Will I have to pay for parking at each place? How much?

      How much does bus cost? Is there such thing as an unlimited day bus pass?

      Can we take a bus from JR station to this pension or do we have to take taxi? If so, any idea about the cost?

      By viewing their web-site, we like their rooms but need to know how we can access to and from JR station and the temple area.
