  • 輪王寺大猷院是德川家光的靈位所在地。這個地方和日光的各個寺院神社相比一點也不差,但是人卻沒有那麼多,絕對值得來看看。不會令人失望的。

  • 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.
