Nikko, Japan

... by 15 Tokugawa shoguns until restoration of imperial power in 1868. After lunch, three of us and our tour guide caught a 45 minute bus ride to Chuzenji. We had to wind up a mountain to reach this little town and it was here that we visited Kegon waterfall. We took an elevator down so we could get a better view. It definitely isn't anything close to Niagara Falls but it was still nice to see. The water was coming over the falls at a rate of 4 tons ...

... pretty shocking, (lashing rain, thunder and lightning) but it made for some spectacular scenery.

This morning Cole and I got up at 5:00 am and walked about a mile to
Tenmongu Shrine this morning. As we walked along the road, the buildings
became older and older as we approached the base of the mountain. The
architecture is very rustic and intricate. The 30 foot walls of the shrine
were covered in relief, and even a 6 inch bird had every single feather
depicted. Detail is very important here. This is also true to everyday
life. When the maids ...

... crazy!

The ink workshop we had was very interesting. We had to paint Mount Fuji along with the master. The placement of the marks was very important with the ink. You were not trying to make long flowing beautiful lines. Instead the rougher they appeared the better. Thankfully we had practice paper. After painting twice, the Sensei asked me if I found it easy; apparently he thought I caught on fast because he told me he liked ...
