Nikko is one of the UNESCO world heritages in Japan, famous for the most
decorated shrine and the mausoleum of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of
the Tokugawa shogunate.
Lake Chuzenji is a scenic lake in the mountain above the town of Nikko, and at the foot of Mount Nantai. In the lake area, there are two famous waterfalls called as Kegon Waterfall and Ryuzu Waterfall. Viewing autumn colorful leaves (koyo) is popular as well as cherry blossoms in spring. Leaves in mountain area change color from the beginning of October. You can refresh there by about one hour drive.
