Lake Chuzenji

Nikko
Lake Chuzenji is a scenic lake in the mountains above the town of Nikko. It is located at the foot of Mount Nantai, Nikko's sacred volcano, whose eruption blocked the valley below, thereby creating Lake Chuzenji about 20,000 years ago. Chuzenjiko's shores are mostly undeveloped and forested except at the lake's eastern end where the small hot spring town of Chuzenjiko Onsen was built. From the late 19th to the early 20th centuries, villas of European embassies were built around this lake as a summer resort. Today, there are the villas of embassies of France, Belgium and Britain. In 1998, Tochigi Prefecture bought the Italian Embassy Villa built in 1928.

Toshogu Shrine

Nikko
Toshogu Shrine is the final resting place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate that ruled Japan for over 250 years until 1868. Ieyasu is enshrined at Toshogu as the deity Tosho Daigongen, "Great Deity of the East Shining Light". Initially a relatively simple mausoleum, Toshogu was enlarged into the spectacular complex seen today by Ieyasu's grandson Iemitsu during the first half of the 1600s. The lavishly decorated shrine complex consists of more than a dozen buildings set in a beautiful forest. Countless wood carvings and large amounts of gold leaf were used to decorate the buildings in a way not seen elsewhere in Japan, where simplicity has been traditionally stressed in shrine architecture. Visitors may note that Toshogu contains both Shinto and Buddhist elements. It was common for places of worship to contain elements of both religions until the Meiji Period when Shinto was deliberately separated from Buddhism. Across the country, Buddhist elements were removed from shrines and vice versa, but at Toshogu the two religions were so intermingled that the separation was not carried out completely.

Kegon waterfall

Visit Kurashiki Canal town

Kurashiki
Kurashiki Canal Area is located in Okayama Prefecture and was once an important distribution center for large quantities of rice during the Edo Period (1603-1868). From Kurashiki large amounts of rice were distributed to the surrounding areas. It is one of the reasons you will see many warehouses along the canal. Although today they are no longer used as storage, but have been converted into restaurants, shops, and museums. The canal area is also known as Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter and is one of the most picturesque old merchant quarters in Japan. Kurashiki was placed under the direct control of the Tokugawa Shogunate because of its value as a trade center for rice. It stored rice that would later be transferred to Osaka and Edo (present day Tokyo). The canals were built as a way to allow boats and barges to move easily to the different storehouses. Great efforts were made to maintain the look and atmosphere of the Edo merchant days. Even though not all of the Kurashiki Canal Area was preserved, the ones located in the center provide a good idea on how the system used to be. The white walls and black tiles are indicators on which buildings were once storehouses.

Todai-ji Temple With Deer park

Nara
Todaiji is one of the most impressive temples in Japan, and plays a major role in Japanese history through the ages. You approach Todaiji Temple through the Nandaimon (Great Southern Gate), where you are confronted by the fierce Nio figures that guard the approach to the Great Buddha. Carved by famous sculptors Unkei and Kaikei, around the 12th century AD, they are two of the finest examples in Japan. The Daibutsuden (Great Buddha Hall), one of the world’s largest wooden structures, is breathtaking in its scale and architecture. Standing in front of the hall, you will see a large octagonal bronze lantern: one of the temple’s oldest treasures. Completed around 752 during the Nara Period, this World Heritage temple was commissioned by Emperor Shomu to bring peace to a tumultuous period: in addition to losing his infant son, there had been a smallpox epidemic, crop failures and an attempted coup. The Daibutsu (Great Buddha) is Japan’s largest at 15m high. Cast from over 400 tons of bronze and originally gilded, the whole nation was involved in its construction. Several attempts at casting the Buddha failed before success was finally achieved in 752. Ambassadors from as far away from India, Persia and China attended the dedication ceremony and the gifts they brought with them were kept in the Shoso-in treasure house, behind the hall. Be sure to walk behind the statue to see the models of how the temple site originally looked. The grounds around the main temple are also well worth visiting. There are extensive gardens and several museums and treasure halls. To the right of the main temple, the Nigatsudo hall features some fine Buddhist carvings and sweeping views over Nara. From there the path continues to Kasugataisha Shrine. Also nearby are the Isuien traditional Japanese garden, Kohfukuji Temple and its renown Buddhist statue museum, and the Nara National Museum, with its superb collections of Nara Period art.

Kinkakuji Temple

Kyoto
Discussing about a gorgeous sight the gold-plated primary corridor of this tremendously famous sanctuary in northwest Kyoto is apparently the greatest sight in the whole city. The lobby transcends its reflecting lake like a phantom and in case you're sufficiently fortunate to be here on a splendid bright day, you nearly need shades to take a gander at it.

Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine

Kyoto
Fushimi shrine is an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. Shrine means a holy place, which is famous for its thousands of vermilion torri gates, which connect a network of trails behind its main buildings. The hike to the summit of the mountain and the back takes about 2-3 hours. Many hikers only venture as far as here as the trails splits into circle route of the summit. It is simply the most impressive and the most memorable sights in Kyoto.
