... The rest of morning was spent at Tosyogu Shrine. As you walk through the gate in front of the main shrine, you are facing directly North of Tokyo. It was built this way as then the shrine can watch over Tokyo that is directly to the south. This shrine is significant as it is one of the most elaborately coloured shrines in Japan. It is dedicated to Tokugawa who conquered most of Japan. His rule was known as the Edo era. It lasted 260 years of ...

... as if no time had passed at all. But he is very helpful, a great cook (he made us New York Style pizzas for dinner and french toast for breakfast), and above all, he's EXTREMELY passionate about Nikko; he basically planned our day for us and gave us some great tips about seeing the local sights.

... scrollwork decorated almost every surface. We also climbed up a winding and steep staircase (200 steps even) through a serene forest to the austere and sacred mausoleum of Ieyasu Tokugawa. It was quite a pleasant change from the busy atmosphere (countless busloads of tourists and school trips) of the buildings below.

After a few hours wandering around there, we walked by the Futarasan Shrine and Taiyuinbuyo, and ...

... is dedicated to the spirit of Tokugawa Ieyatsu. It is a riots of colours, gold, and carvings, with birds, flowers, elephants and dragons. Ieyatsu used the best craftsmen of the Edo era to build this marvel. Compared with the exuberance of the shrine, the mausoleum of Ieyastu a very sober.
Jokoji Temple: this place is on the western side of Nikko, off the beaten track, tucked away within the streets of small houses. At the entrance was a ...
