Nikko

— 2 nights
A gateway to a sprawling and diverse national park, a center of Shinto spiritualism and place of Buddhist worship, an emblem of the riches and dominance of the Tokugawa shogunate: Nikko means many things to many people.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Wed): steep yourself in history at Taiyuimbyo Shrine, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Nikko Tosho-gu, then take in the views from Shinkyo Bridge, and finally sample some tasty brews at Katayama Shuzo. Keep things going the next day: take in the dramatic scenery at Kegon Falls, then contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Chuzenji, and then make a trip to Senjogahara Field.
