Toshogu Shrine and Futarasan

This begin the journey into the Toshogu Shrine. The lavishly decorated shrine complex consists of more than a dozen buildings set in a beautiful forest. Countless wood carvings and large amounts of gold leaf were used to decorate the buildings in a way not seen elsewhere in Japan, where simplicity has been traditionally stressed in shrine architecture.

Visitors may note that Toshogu contains both Shinto and Buddhist elements. It was common for places of worship to contain elements of both religions until the Meiji Period when Shinto was deliberately separated from Buddhism. Across the country, Buddhist elements were removed from shrines and vice versa, but at Toshogu the two religions were so intermingled that the separation was not carried out completely.

Nikko-Sanraku

Give a Nikko original taste a try at this popular spot for travelers. Sample some of Nikko’s famous tofu skin, a delicacy and local favorite in the area, boiled into a broth of fresh vegetables from locally sourced farms. This is the proper meal for a day at Nikko, something hearty and warm for the cold months of Japan. Please note this lunch is not included in this tour.

Shinkyo Bridge

For some, this sound, simple, and serene bridge is often the highlight of a trip to Nikko, and for very good reason. It seems that often the most unintentional of sights stay in your mind the most, and the Shinkyo Bridge may just be that. As the day just begins to darken, this tour captures Shinkyo Bridge at one of its most peaceful moments. Photography is strongly encouraged!

Lake Chuzenji

Lake Chuzenji sits at 1,269m and, in the category of naturally formed lakes, it is the highest lake in Japan. Because of this high altitude, Lake Chuzenji is very cool even in the summer months, and many people visit this lake for this very reason to enjoy the cool summer with some camping! There are many restaurants and tourist attractions like boat riding or fishing as well. There are many waterfalls, including world famous Kegon Falls.

Kegon Falls

Kegon Falls is one of the three greatest waterfalls in Japan, and that isn’t just our opinion! Japanese rate this category and take it quite seriously, and your tour will see it front and center. Moreover, Kegon Falls might just be the most famous waterfall in all of Japan. This mighty waterfall stands at about 97 meters, and is over 7 meters in width.
