My Tsukuba Life

Foods, Sightseeing, and Experience in Tsukuba, JAPAN

Let’s Go on a Hike, not Hichhike, before Rainy Season Comes

Cold winter passed through Japan. Cherries have already stared loosing their flower leaves and grown their new green leaves. bloomed in our area. Good season for a stroll has come. Where should we walk? I found an interesting event that planned by East Japan Railway Company (JR-EAST) that is one of very famous companies in Japan. The event is hiking in Nikko, that will be held from 16 April to 30 June, 2015. Nikko locates in Tochigi prefecture that is in the north of Tokyo.

English maps and staffs who can speak English will be available. No tour fee will be needed. You just need to check in reception desk at JR Nikko station from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM and then visit shrines, temple, museum, and historical bridge (for example, Shinkyo Bridge of Futarasan Shrine) with other participants. As you see in the picture below, Shinkyo Bridge is quite beautiful although the picture was taken in the autumn season, not the spring, because I can see colored leaves. I’m sorry but the picture is too nice to leave. The museum needs entrance fee. You will walk approximately 8 km to get to the goal. It will take about 2 and a half hour for just walking.

If you are looking for any activity related to Japanese culture and interested in the event, please check it. You may make new friends in the hiking and want to go to Nikko again when the autumn comes.
