On the road: Autumn in Nikko

It’s a long weekend and I’m making the most of the extra day off! I’m spending a couple of days sightseeing in the beautiful town of Nikko, a few hours north of Tokyo. I came up to see the autumn leaves, and so did half the country it seems! Traffic has been crazy!! We had wanted to visit a few waterfalls out of town but were told the usual 50 minute bus ride would take about 4 hours!! Boo. So we decided to stay around the World Heritage temples and shrines. It was still a fantastic trip. Nikko never disappoints! Here are a few sneak peak snaps from my iPhone. I’ll share my ‘real camera’ photos later :)

    • 日光の紅葉は本当に素晴らしかったですよ! 奥日光にめっちゃ行きたかったんですが、交通渋滞がひどかったので、行けなかったことはとても残念だと思いますね。
