Nikko National Park, the Toshogu Shrine and Edo Wonderland

What is the closest station to the above locations? We were thinking of going with this tour http://www.viator.com/tours/Tokyo/Best-of-Edo-Japan-Nikko-National-Park-and-Edo-Wonderland-Day-Trip-from-Tokyo/d334-2142TYO_F310.

However, after posting a question about another destination, we learned that it may not be that difficult for us with our 2 children (9 and 11) to just use the JR Pass.

Are the above 3 destinations on the tour close to each other? Thanks.

Hi,

It is easy to go from Tokyo to JR Nikko Station. If you have a JR Pass, you can use it for the trip. There is also a Tobu Nikko Free Pass which you can use to see many good places there.

There are also nice hot springs there, which your family should experience at least once in Japan.

There is no need at all to spend hundreds of dollars on some tour company, when you can just do it yourself at your own pace and pleasure.
