Time of year
We didn’t really spend any time here as our main aim was the Toshogo shrine but passed it on the way through. If we had had more time there to see in this area and is all part of one admission fee.
Once you're in Nikko, it's worth paying to see all the temples. This isn't the nicest one, but it's a quite one, with lots of details.
This place is very nice. I can vouch for it to be the #1 must place to visit in nikko. Solemn and peaceful. Try to give respect to the deities.
This shrine was very nice but it was not the highlight of my one-day trip in Nikko. Try to avoid the crowd visit Nikko in the afternoon and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature.
I had the feeling while I was there it had something to do with young girls, but I could be wrong. I found it a nice shrine with several very nices gates.
