Akechidaira Plateau


Located near the top of Irohazaka Slope, Akechidaira Plateau has sweeping views over a winding road and a dramatic mountain backdrop. Take the ropeway up to the observation platform for even more panoramic views, including Kegon Falls and Lake Chuzenji. Alternatively, you can join a hiking trail that runs from the lake to the observation platform via Akechidaira Plateau.

How to get there:
35 minutes from Nikko Station or Tobu-Nikko Station by buses bound for Chuzenji Onsen/Yumoto Onsen, then a short walk from Akechidaira bus stop.
