A pleasant walk especially welcome at times when the Toshogu and Futarasan-jinja shrines and the Rinnoji temples are crowded. Collect a copy of the Nikko Historical Walking Map from the helpful tourist information office. A circular route marked on the map in green commences from the red lacquered Shinkyo Bridge upwards through the Nikko Shrines and Temples and meanders upwards past a small waterfall to the Shrine. Vary the return journey downhill by following a path which branches off below the Shrine and runs parallel to a quiet road back down through the temple area finishing at the Bridge and Nikko town. The whole circuit including the temple area is around 5 km.
