Nikko is a town at the entrance to Nikko National Park,
most famous for Toshogu, Japan's most lavishly decorated shrine and the
mausoleum of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate. There
are several view points such as Toshogu Shrine, Taiyuinbyo, Rinnoji Temple,
Tamozawa Villla, Futarasan Shrine etc.
Toshogu Shrine still attracts large numbers of worshippers today, is the
final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun of the long-reigning
Yomei-mon Gate, one of Japan's most magnificent national treasures, is
especially breathtaking in winter because sunlight reflected by the snow
shows all of the stunning woodwork's exquisite detail. Worshippers come
to this shrine from all over Japan, and various festivals and other events
are held year-round. This is full day course.
