In Nikko Unesco world heritage

My first planned trip durng my stay in Tokyo was visiting Nikko. The best thing you can do first is buying the 2 Day Nikko Pass for 267o YEN.  This Pass gives you the chance to discover Nikko in 2 Days (incl. return ticket but only for the section rapid trains (no express trains) and free use of the heritage bus 2C in Nikko itself). Admission fees for any shrines or temples ar not included. I just used it for one day, so I travelled back on the same day.

The Nikko Line starts in Asakusa at the Tobu Skytree Line station and is a direct connection to Nikko. Make sure you look for a seat in Asakusa into the 2 last train cars (Nr. 5 or 6!) because the train will be separated at Shimoimaichi station!

Nikko world heritage bus 2CIn Nikko you can board the world heritage bus Nr. 2C or you walk about 15-20min to the sites. For myself the bus map was a little bit confusing so I decided after a short ride to disembark and walk the whole day.

As I mentionned before the admission fees for the entrance to each shrines aren’t included. Prices for the shrines are as follows: Toshogu 1300, Futarasan 200, Rinoji temple 400 and Taiyui Mausoleum 550 YEN.

As a coincidence I bumped first into the beautiful Shoyo-en garden at Rinnoji temple as you might see on the following pictures:
