Last day of the cultural visit.
Just like Kamakura, by train Nikko is about one hour away from Tokyo too.
The visit to the temples and the sanctuaries takes nearly the whole morning, but the breathtaking sights pay off for the hard climb.
And if those were not enough, it must be considered that right in Nikko I bought the cult object of this journey; a little box to imitate the animated series “Invincible Shogun”..I too will finally be able to carelessly show the power gadget and shout “Bow in presence of the Shogun Mittsukuni Mito!!!” - and the background music starts -
The faces of the temples sported some very nice and worthy zoomorphic decorations, the famous sleeping cat and the even more famous three monkeys from the legend: I don't see, I don't hear and I don't speak.. to which we immediately shot some pictures in a revised and corrected version that exposed us as usual to the public laugh, while the other tourists took pictures of us laughing and imitating us ^_^.
The boys, who didn't want to be left behind, spoof the two statues guarding the temple, which resemble those of Hokuto... wonderful!
Moreover, climbing some sort of a hill along the path shown on the map, and selling a lung or two, the grave of Yasuo Tokugawa, the famous Shogun, can be reached.
