Tochigi Prefecture (栃木県, Tochigi-ken) is home to Nikko Toshogu. Dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, it is surrounded by other noteworthy shrines and temples, and the whole district has been designated a World Heritage Site. Also located in the Nikko area are Kegon Falls, Kinugawa Onsen, and Edo Wonderland, a theme park where visitors can experience what life was like during the Edo Period.

The Nasu area is also known for its hot springs, and is a great resort spot during the summer and winter. Sano is famous for its ramen and the capital Utsunomiya for its gyoza dumplings, while nature lovers will want to visit Lake Chuzenji.
