No other country except Japan makes me want to visit over and over again and with each visit, my affection and admiration just increase. On my last trip, I told myself that I have enough with Japan but after a few months later, I found myself missing Japan. Their highly-defined culture is something that attracts me the most and of course, the seemingly endless varieties in their cuisine – both staple and seasonal.
It was early Autumn time when we were there, so the leaves started turning red and Nikko looked really beautiful in different shades of colors – ranging from luscious green to yellow and bright red.
Kanmangafuchi Abyss is a dream came true for me. I can’t remember how long was it ago that I watched a documentary on Japan and have been wanting to visit there. Thanks to Teddy to putting up with walking for a long distance in the windy rainy weather.
If you are in Nikko, you definitely need to make a visit to Toshogu Shrine and Futarasan Shrine. There are many shrines in the area but we decided to skip them since there are too many of them to visit on a day trip.
