Nikko’s Nature

Hi everyone,

I’m back in Tokyo after a short trip up north to Nikko. I had a great, relaxing time there, surrounded by amazing natural sceneries.

I spent my time there hiking through World Heritage sites (for which I definitely did not dress appropriately by wearing pants and a sweater when it was so humid), going to onsen a couple times, and then hopping on a 1-hour bus up to Lake Chuzenji and Kegon Falls, one of the three most famous waterfalls in Japan.

There’s an observation deck near the top that opens onto a panaroma of the mountains, lake, town and waterfall all at once. I stayed there for maybe 20 minutes, enjoying the view and taking pictures.

I then went closer to the falls, which were also a fantastic site.

All in all, Nikko was a perfect break from Tokyo’s big-city aura. Everything in the town was quaint, and it was very easy to stroll through the small streets. To top it off, my hostel threw a cooking party on my last night which was loads of fun. We made Japanese food together while of course drinking and practicing Japanese.

I’m back in Tokyo now until Monday, so time for more crazy city life!

Thanks! Here are some more pics:
