Nikko Day Trip

Japan travel journal, continued:

Today we took a day trip to Nikko, the resting place of Japanโ€™s first Shogun.

A graceful red bridge arches over a winding river. A tall skinny pagoda with red, carved wood walls and gold-edged eaves stands amid Japanese umbrella pines. A small group of humans is dwarfed by enormous pine trees as they walk a gravel path through the forest.A gold and red prayer house made to honor Japan's first shogun (feudal governor) after his death. Two rows of moss-covered pillars in the shape of lanterns. They look like enormous chess pieces on a lawn of green grass.
