Under repair. Did walk around the grounds and looked at other parts that were open . Nice but not the best to see on the Heritage site. Save for last and if you have remaining time I would then check it out.

There really is not much there to see. Since, this was right next to Taiyuinbyo, we went in anyhow. There was however, a beautiful forest.

Our self-guided tour focused on the world cultural heritage site of temples and shrines about 1/2 hour walk from the Nikko Station. We followed the trail starting near the photogenic Shinkyo Bridge and walked up past the stature of a monk, the Nikko Futarasan Jinja...More
