- travel simply -

Millions of tourists visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Nikko each year to see the uniquely ornate architecture of Japan’s “baroque period”. Nikko has been a Buddhist sanctuary since over 1200 years ago, when the great priest Shodo Shonin first saw the region’s forests, mountains and waterways. Today, Nikko’s chief draw is the complex surrounding the Toshogu Shrine, burial place of Japan’s most powerful Shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu. The shrine buildings are located within a wonderful old cryptomeria (Japanese cedar) forest.
