This sightseeing ship operates in Nikko National Park in Nikko City, Tochigi Prefecture. Passengers can choose from a wide variety of courses including one that takes the ship around Lake Chuzenji and one that visits the lake’s most famous spots.

Hourly boats circle the lake counter-clockwise, stopping at Chuzenjiko Onsen, Shobugahama Pier near Ryuzu Waterfall, a pier near the Italian and British embassy villas and Chuzenji Temple. In June only, a line also serves Senjugahama at the lake’s western end.

Passengers can view the beautiful seasonal scenery from the ship, which is especially popular with tourists around the autumn foliage season.

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.
