  • A smaller complex than Toshogu, with architecture similar to the mausoleum of Tokugawa Iemitsu's grandfather. While the crowds are comparatively less, Taiyuinbyo is by no means deserted and still has decent footfall. There are almost no English explanations displayed on the temple grounds.

  • This Temple is about 80% as nice as the other bigger temple East of here but only about 20% as busy as you can see from the pictures so an awesome retreat from the crowds. Entrance is about half the cost of the main temple. I suggest to do both if you have made the 2.5h journey from Tokyo.

  • Very interesting but overpriced and the staff is not friendly neither speak English in such a turístic places with people coming from around the world. I would completely drop visiting Nikko in favour of Nara, much nicer.

  • Quiet temple and therefore, a great area to relax from the hustle and bustle.

  • Very nice and not as nearly as much tourists here as in Tosho-gu.
