While visiting Japan, one of the easiest world heritage sites to visit is Nikko. A national park, shrines, and much more await you. Taking a day trip to Nikko will make your Japan trip that much more memorable.
Getting to Nikko was half the fun, especially on a snowy January day. The train takes well over an hour from Tokyo and then it’s a bus ride or a walk to the temple. It was a cold, wet snow so every step made me colder than the one before it. Of course photographing in this weather brings a whole new set of challenges. Trying not to get the camera wet, yet finding a good exposure…all very tough. I loved Nikko. If you are in or near Tokyo, don’t miss it.
