What to Expect
We will appreciate Nikko’s natural beauty and traditional sites that have been religious center of Buddhism and Shintoism, Japan’s indigenous religion. The main highlight is Toshogu Shrine which is dedicated to the deified spirit of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of Tokugawa Shogunate. The shrine has a lot of traditional structures featuring lavish and exquisite carvings in colors. The combination of its natural and man-made beauties is Nikko’s attraction. There is an old proverb: Never say wonderful without seeing Nikko.
