When I go hiking it usually means climbing a mountain to be able to take in the beautiful scenery from a bird`s eye view. The trail through Nikko`s marshlands, however, is almost flat; nonetheless, it is definitely one of my favorite hikes in the area. It is an easy and relaxing walk; it takes only 2.5 to 3 hours to complete. You will be surprised how quickly and how often the landscape changes—simply amazing!
