Today you will travel to Nikko and stay in one of their famous Japanese ryokan inns. Nikko’s colorful shrines and temples, and its national park offer the visitor a wonderful combination of both Japanese history and natural beauty. Nikko means “sunlight,” and its shrines and temples were constructed in the 17th century in honor of the great shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu. This complex of temples and shrines at Toshogu are the highlight of Nikko.
You will have dinner served at your ryokan and breakfast the following morning. After dinner we suggest bathing in one of the ryokan’s natural hot spring baths.
