... and off we go to the little town of Nikko, a little mountain town with a wonderful mountain stream running through it. We find the bus to the shrines and we settle in for a lovely ride. It's all very green and the pine trees remind me of coastal redwoods-and nestled among them is the Toshogu shrine complex.
