Nikko is a small town 100 km north of Tokyo which is full of attractions. There is a bunch of temples and shrines that are World Heritages. Nikko is in the mountains, and there plenty of hiking opportunities. Another 10 km from Nikko, but 800 more metres above sea level is Chuzenji where is a spectacular waterfall.

To see all this in one day is of course impossible, but I had grown tired of my backpack and did Nikko as a day excursion from Tokyo. I had a plan. And, no, it did not work out.
