We did the temples, shrines and the Imperial Villa, but this was the best thing we did in Nikko. The trail starts near the Shinkyo Sacred Bridge and proceeds up the mountain past the Toshogu Shrine. The shrines were very busy, but we basically had the trail to ourselves with just an occasional group or individual walker. On the way up the trail went parallel to a rural road through cedar and bamboo forests (some of the cedar trees are enormous) and past small shrines, stones and waterfalls to the Takino'o Shrine. The trail consists of large smooth stones (which could be slippery if it was raining) and some flights of starirs. It was mistly and foggy when we were there, but was not raining. Definitely worth the time. Be sure to see the statues under the cliff at the Hotoke Iwa.

The Takinoo Shrine is the final destination of a beautiful peaceful walk through Japanese cedars. It was the walk that was most memorable for me, rather than this simple shrine.

It is an excellent place to get away from the crowded touristic attractions. Wear proper shoes for the walk. There is also a small waterfall you can enjoy. The shrine is a kind of magical. It is an absolute must to see! :-)

This is the end of a 5km hike up and back, it is worth the trip, there is more than just the shrine, there is some hidden waterfalls behind this.

Although a bit of a walk (on a very humid day) it was well worth it for the peace and quiet after all the crowds in the main World Heritage site. Excellent for photographers or people who want to get away from it all.
