The legendary land of Fleeing Heike Ochiudo warriors

A village of old, traditional Japanese thatched-roofed houses was relocated and reconstructed in order to preserve Heike Ochiudo culture for future generations. In this area, the “Heike mounds” where Fleeing Heike Ochiudo warriors buried their weapons and treasures can be seen. And, of course, there are plenty of local dishes to enjoy.

Nikko Area

The Nikko area, in the northwestern part of the prefecture, is particularly mountainous. In the midst of the rich nature, including the 2,486-meter-high volcano Mt. Nantai, Lake Chuzenji, and Kegon Falls, there are numerous shrines and temples that are registered as UNESCO Cultural Heritage sites. From Kinugawa Onsen to Kawaji Onsen, hot springs can also be found throughout the area. There are a wide range of outdoor activities to enjoy as well, such as stand-up paddleboarding in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter.
