wic***itWe took a bus from JR Station and got off here. it was a nice walk around noon time. Very nice structure and decoration. It was cold here although the sun was shining and sky was blue and clear. There was a coffee house and a museum nearby. We didn't go inside any site so only have photos of the exterior. Walking back to JR Station is easy and taking about half an hour. I saw the signage Nikko National Park before entering this area..
_We***66It was quite easy to get to from Kinugawa Onsen. the bus ticket is a little expensive but it will save you some walking time. Edo wonderland is a theme park based on Japan from the 17th century. there are actors "living" there who will talk to you and help you around. there are some shows. the ninja shows is not to be missed, there's English presentation and not a lot of talk during the show so it's worth it. unfortunately for most of the others, Japanese language is needed. people working there are super friendly and willing to help if you have any questions (average English is good) the entrance ticket is a little pricey but you get nice décor but then you'll need to pay more if you want to do archery/shirunken/feeding horses. some activities are fun and free. everything related to the ninjas were very fun.
wic***itWe took a bus from JR Nikko Station and got off here, cost 200 Yen per person. That is a bus going through World Heritage sites. A fee is required to walk on the red bridge. It is March 2020 during the Coronavirus spreading period so people are wearing face masks. The other site of the street is Nikko National Park. Water flowing under this bridge is so clear. Sun is not strong that day. It is cold in day time. A jacket is recommended and gloves too. We walked back to JR Station and it took about 30 minutes, about 2km.
小月亮弯弯Tobu World Plaza, it was 4 o’clock and we told it to close at 5 o’clock. We still chose to go in. It was very stressful for an hour and was in a hurry, but I was very satisfied, because the entrance fee does not cost money, and it usually costs about 2800 per person. Yen ticket
Japan has a great enthusiasm for world heritage. From their first 4 most important world heritage sites at the end of 1993, there have been new projects almost every year. So far, 21 sites have been listed in the world heritage list, including 17 cultural heritage sites and 4 natural heritage sites.
When traveling in Tokyo, instead of just going to the classic landmarks inside this metropolitan city, you can also consider nearby attractions, including cities, historic sites, scenic spots, and hot springs. The traffic is much lighter in the Kanto region, and it only takes you 1-2 hours by JR to get to many nearby cities. If you go to Hakone, Kamakura, Yokohama and other nearby cities, there is a traffic ticket package that comes with a discount.
nestled in the northwestern part of Tochigi prefecture. From Tokyo, it can be reached in approximately 2 hours by train, making it a perfect weekend trip destination. It is home to Nikko Toshogu, a world-famous Shinto shrine dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu. He was the first Shogun of Tokugawa Shogunate which once ruled the entire country for 260 years from the beginning of the 17th century. The original establishment of the shrine dates back to 1617, and it has been visited by numerous tourists as a symbolic structure listed on UNESCO World Heritage Site along with other historical sites in the Nikko area. You can explore the sacred shrine grounds full of magnificent buildings, including 8 National Treasure and 34 Important Cultural Properties. Kegon Falls is another popular spot which offers a refreshing experience in nature with an impressive scenery created by the beautiful waterfall and surroundings!
A view of Shinkyo Bridge in Nikko, Japan. The view almost captures the transition between winter and fall. #naturalwonders #couplestrip

it’s in the countryside, outside of the city that you’ll get to see japan’s true identity...

We traveled all around the world by going to Tobu World Square! This attraction has miniatures of landmarks all over the world including the Pyramids of Egypt, the castles of Japan, the Eiffel Tower of Paris, the Forbidden City of Beijing, and many more! It was such a great experience seeing all of these landmarks at least in their miniature form.
This shrine is said to be the final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, who is the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate. This shrine is already a part of the Nikko UNESCO World Heritage Sites. For me, I am very impressed with how detailed and how high quality the artifacts and the displays in the shrine. The whole place is well-preserved. Ticket is for ¥2100, both for the shrine and the museum.
We time-travelled back to the Edo Period (17th century) of Japan by going to Nikko Edo Mura. It is known in English as Edo Wonderland. It is located in Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture. It is a village referenced from the designs of the villages during Edo Period. People can avail of the Kimono Rentals and all the other shows once a ticket is bought. When we went there, we wore Kimono, rented swords, and took lots of pictures!
