Tochigi

About Tochigi

Tochigi is famed for its onsen (hot springs), ski resorts and large natural parks. Approximately 21% of the prefecture is designated as parks. Its capital, Utsunomiya, is famous for gyoza (fried dumplings) and the most per capita consumption of dumplings in Japan. Located one hour away from Tokyo, most Tokyoites prefer to get out of the city and relax in the natural beauty of Tochigi.
