It is definately one of the most beautiful places on this entire planet. I've been lucky enough to see it in two different seasons. In the fall, the leaves turn the color of fire, and in the winter, everything is covered in perfect white snow.
This is Toshogu Shrine. It is famous for the "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" Monkeys.
As you can see, it was snowing like CRAZY!
Nikko is a good workout, as their are stairways everywhere, all over the mountains.

We climbed a really difficult staircase that was covered in snow, fell down ma ny times, but finally made it - YAY!

This delicious creature is a whelk, called Bai. I was scared to eat it at first, but its really tastey!
