Nasushiobara: Where Royalty Relax

Food, activities, onsen, history and culture

By Louise Archer    - 1 min read

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 am an Aussie expat (ex Sydney, Perth, ex UK) living in rural Japan. Im very passionate about people seeing more of Japan than the big cities, which are wonderful places, but there are so many hidden treasures in the countryside and lesser known regions. For the three years I have been living here I've been keeping a blog called "Just life (in Japan)"  about my life in Japan, the places I visit and Tochigi Prefecture where I live.
