Easy to get to from Nikko station. Just take a bus for 200Yen from the station or get an all day pass if seeing all the sites and have time on hand. The shrine is amazing craftsmanship in honor to Ieyasu Tokugawa Japans first Shogun after the warring states period. I visited third week of November and there was still some lovely Autumn foliage to be seen. The Cedars lined walkways and surrounding shrines and temples were lovely but this is definitely in my top 3 of all places visited in Japan.

What a great day trip from Tokyo. The train trip from Tokyo was relaxing and once there you get on the bus that takes you to the Shrine. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you will know why when you visit. The Shrine was completed in 1636 and it took 4.5 million artisans and workers 1.5 years to complete the groups of buildings that are more elaborate and gorgeous than any other Japanese temple or shrine. There are a lot of steps but it is doable if you are not rushed. Especially the steps to Leuasu Toshogu's grave site. One thing to know is that the Shinzo Sacred Bridge is an extra fee to cross and once you get across you have to go back across to exit that site and go on to the Shrine.

This beautiful temple is a must-see if you're visiting Japan. Wander through the temple, admire the exquisite attention to detail, and soak in the history (it was built in the 16th century). Specifically, look for the carving of the Three Monkeys, which are the basis for the "hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil" monkeys that are common nowadays. It's a calm place, even when there are a lot of visitors.
