Ieyasu was the first Shogun of the Tokugawa clan, who seized power and effective rule of Japan in 1600. He led the country for a further 16 years until his death, but his legacy continued and the Tokugawa Shogunate ruled Japan through to the Meiji Period until 1868. Ieyasu was enshrined at Tōshōgū Shrine in Nikkō and the region played a big part in his life.

Take a scenic train ride out from Tōkyō to the picturesque mountains of Tochigi Prefecture to learn about this iconic leader, credited with unifying Japan, and his powerful Tokugawa clan through the atmospheric UNESCO site which now houses his mausoleum, together with a complex of spectacular shrines. In addition to its rich history and culture, Nikkō is also well-known for its beautiful nature. After exploring the central area, travel deeper into Nikkō's varied landscape to Oku-Nikkō, to enjoy exhilarating hiking through the marshlands towards Nikkō Yumoto Onsen, a hot spring village with comfortable inns, spending two further days hiking in the region.
