Nikko is Nippon, you can see both historical and natural in Nikko. It’s very nice place to go. But you have to spend more 2 hours ride from Tokyo.

Such a beautiful place filled with historic temples, shrines, wildlife, and activities. This is a MUST VISIT if you have not been. There are train stations in Nikko and buses to get to different points of interest.
