It was a day jam packed with temples and shrine visits. What I remember is that it was pretty empty when we visited this place as compared to some of the others. On a way , it's peaceful and nice to visit.

The street between Nikko Toshogu Shrine and Futarasan Shrine is famous for power spot. It was surrounded by a lot of lanterns and trees. Very beautiful! I could feel relaxing. パワースポットとして有名な日光東照宮と二荒山神社を結ぶ参道。灯篭と杉に囲まれ、とても美しく気持ちの良い通りでした。

This is one of the must stops when visiting Nikko. The craftsmanship of the construction and the beauty of both the buildings and the grounds are wonderful. Currently a small amount of refurbishment is ongoing but not significant
