Narita is not only the entrance to Japan but a temple town of ‘Shinshoji’ with a long history. Nikko Toshogu Shrine with lavish and spectacular decorations and Mt. Fuji are symbols of Japan.
Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain (3,773 meters) in Japan and also regarded female. Japanese people say that she is so bashful that she only shows herself to pure people. If you can’t see her, well…………
Joke aside, you have to pray for good luck as you can see this beautiful mountain only on clear days.
People say that you cannot tell others that you’ve visited Japan before visiting Nikko.
It is worthwhile to spend one day to visit this spot because you can enjoy beautifully curved sculptures that decorate the buildings. And you may learn many interesting stories about the each buildings.
