... Shrine and the Rinnoji Temple. Due to the higher elevation of Nikko, it was the coolest day so far but the warm sun streaming through the giant cedar forest made it very pleasant to negotiate the many many stairs leading up to the stunning shrines and temple complexes. I would thoroughly recommend this area, it is stunningly beautiful and a standout attraction in Japan. We were pleased we started out early as by the time we were leaving busloads of tour groups ...

A visit to Kirifuri waterfalls that involved a short walk along a quite uneven path with quite a few steps in poor light finished off the day before the long slow drive back to Tokyo.

As I said the other day, Iiyama was a perfect experience and it may be sometime before I feel that way again. I may have been spoiled for life and nothing else will compare.
Tomorrow will also be the final ride of my tour before I return to Tokyo on Sunday and get ready to fly back.
