Tokyo Five - Nikko

For our excursion out of the city, we chose Nikko, about a 2 hour train ride from Tokyo. Nikko is home to the Shrines and Temples of Nikko - a world heritage site. It was a wet, rainy day, making everything foggy and lush. The trees were the tallest I've seen and the shrines and temples were phenomenal - so rich in color and detail, and each unique.

On day 2, we rode a bus to see the Kegon Falls near Lake Chūzenji in Nikko National Park. Even with no green foilage in November, the falls were magnificent.

Pin It!
