Nasushiobara: Where Royalty Relax

Food, activities, onsen, history and culture

 By Louise Archer   Oct 19, 2014

Nasushiobara is one of the places where the Imperial family has a villa, coming here to relax and get away from the hustle of the city. Nasu and the surrounding area has so much to see and do. It is especially stunning in autumn with the colors of the foliage, but the views are amazing all year round.  There are many hiking trails and lots of onsen to soak in after a day spent in the outdoors. Easily accessible from Tokyo by Shinkansen, there are buses regularly going to most of the major spots and hire cars available at the station. Here are around 20 interesting places to enjoy!

I was just in Tochigi, Louise, but you really make me want to go back! It looks lovely in autumn.
