Shrines and Temples of Nikko

Received on: 3 Jun, 2013
Distance: 7,775 km (4,831 miles)
Travel time: 9 days

Masayo from Tokyo sent me this card showing Yomeimon gate of Nikko Toshogu Temple. It is one of the most magnificent structures in Japan. The two-story "Yomei-mon Gate" is decorated with brilliant colors and over 500 sculptures. It is also called "Higurashi-mon (sunset gate)", because people spend all day long gazing at its beauty.
Added to UNESCO sites in 1999.
