October 14th 2001, Sunday

The nikko trip was with Abe san and his kind family. First of all I should thank him and his family for taking me to there. It was a very nice trip. We started from my apartment by 5.30 am in the morning, and reached nikko by 7.30 am. There are a lot of places to see there in the nokko. 

The Nikko National Park (about 1400 square kilometres) contains beautiful forests lakes and mountains such as the Nantai volcano. There are many water falls, kegon falls, ryusus falls, yudaki falls etc etc. Each and every water fall has it own specialty. The Keogn water fall is unique with its height (more details will be added latter). Then there is one famous shrine in nokko - oshogo shrine. The Toshogu Shrine was built for Tokugawa Ieyasu after his death. It contains the mausoleum of Ieyasu who is one of the most important figures in Japanese history, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate that lasted for over 250 years until 1867. The Toshogu Shrine is very famous for its colorful and sumptuously decorated buildings which are untypical for - usually in simple styles built. (Please visit again. I shall add photos of Toshugu shrine soon). Then we could enjoy the beautiful nature of Oku Nikko where are Mt. Nantai, the tableland of Senjogahara(It is a mountain) and Lake Chuzenji-ko. Also we could see the color changes of the leaves.
