    That photo of the Shinkyo Bridge over the Daiya river is so pretty! Nikko definitely seems like a worthwhile stop in Japan.

      It’s a pretty famous place in Japan. You’ll often see pictures of it in train stations and such. It’s actually what inspired me to visit Nikko in the first place!

    Your second photo in the Taiyuinbio section is actually from the Toshogu shrine. I’ve been to NIkko twice and have a detailed post on my site also.

  4. This is a great guide! Were heading to Tokyo in April, so im going to save this for our planning! The temples and shrines look amazing!

      The shrines and temples are some of my favorite parts of Japan (in Nikko and the rest of Japan). Have fun on your trip to Tokyo!

    I am always looking for more things to do in Japan. Haven’t had a chance to check out Nikko yet. Thanks for sharing this!

      I know Nikko usually doesn’t make the top of the list when people are planning their trips to Japan, but I’m glad you’ll consider it for the next to you go! It’s definitely an amazing place!

    Japan has so much to see outside of its main towns, saving this for the next time i head up there 🙂

      I know I definitely didn’t appreciate some of the smaller suburbs when I first arrived in Japan, but once I did, I found they were absolutely amazing. I hope you get to check this one out!

    Beautiful pictures! I actually did consider doing a day trip to Nikko when I was in Japan but didn’t end up doing it. Now, wishing I would have. Hopefully I get to go back to Japan!

    Lovely pictures. Japan is on my bucket list. This makes for a great day trip from Tokyo. Bookmarked it for a later time 🙂

      I think it’s a place a lot of people overlook when planning their trip to Tokyo. I hope you’ll get to visit soon!

  9. This is such a lovely place!! And your photographs are amazing, you definitely have an eye for this stuff <3

    These are very lovely pictures! I’m planning a trip to Japan in the following months and willdefinitely be adding Nikko to the schedule. I’m a sucker for historical places.
