'This is one of the most beautiful parks in Japan. Historic heritages such as shrines and temples there harmonize with the excellent natu- ral scenery, and a number of foreign tourists enjoy the Japanese culture and traditional art.

Among the Nikko mountains, famous ones are Mt. Okushirane (2,578m) , Mt. Nantai, Mt. Nasu, and Mt. Hiuchi. On the summit of Mt. Nantai, there is a volcanic crater. Numerous plateaus, rivers, cascades, water-falls, Iakes and deep for- ests are forming together picturesque land- scapes. Ozega-hara, the highest moorland in Japan, is particularly beautiful when Mizu-basho (Lysichiton camtschatcense) and other moor- plants bloom from June to July.
