Today was spent exploring Nikko. This is a city of approximately 90 000 people but I honestly do not know where they were all hiding as it seemed like a quiet, sleepy village. It very much reminded me of Kimberley, BC as it seemed very similar in nature. We started with a short walk by our guest house toward Kanman-ga-fuchi abyss. There were rows of Buddhas along the river. The river also had a bunch of rapids along it with the water looking ...

... Nikko, and it turned out to be a real gem. Run by a young American guy called Scout, who was a real character, this place was fairly off the beaten path, about a 20 minute drive away from the nearest train station.

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

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 ...
