Day Trip

I will in Tokyo in mid February for 7 days. I am thinking spending 4 day in Tokyo and other day doing some day trip by train to some interesting place within 2 hour train ride. Prefer to have direct connection or maximum 1 transfer as I am travelling with my daughter in light wheelchair. My family is staying at near UENO station.

Hi there,

There are a couple of options to mind. For some ideas have a look at our easy day trips from Tokyo page.

Especially Nikko is a nice visit to make and is only one transfer from Ueno.

You can also head up to Matsumoto. There's a limited express route from Shinjuku, Tokyo there and the ride itself is very scenic to make.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

There are many possibilities. Some of the more popular places are Nikko, Kamakura/Enoshima, Kusatsu, Karuizawa, Izu, Hakone, the Fuji 5 Lakes area, Kawagoe and the Boso Peninsula. It is all up to your interests.

Hi there,

While I have no personal experience with Wheelchairs in Nikko. I think this website will be a big help:
