Hi there,

Using the JR Pass: take a local train from Ikebukuro to either Ueno or Tokyo station. There transfer to the Tohoku Shinkansen to Utsunomiya. Here transfer to the local JR Nikko line (to Nikko).

You can also use the Tobu Nikko ltd. express train from Shinjuku, this requires an additional fare around 1,500yen.

Hope this helps,
