As we mentioned in our 7 month update, we visited Nikko to get a glimpse of Japan outside of Tokyo. We had read a few articles about the temples and untouched nature in the surrounding areas, but we mostly went to see a different side of the country.
So we spent the day taking it easy, exploring the area with camera in hand. The quiet forests and eerily calm lake made for a relaxing day away from the city and some great photos, if I do say so myself. 😉
Here are a few of our favorites if you’d like to see.
