Weekend Trip to Nikko #nofilter Part1

In less than 3 hours from Shibuya,

you can come here to Nikko, the city with 1,200 years of history

 

I came here with a car ( Do scroll down for further information) to this sacred place where Shintoism and Buddhism harmonize each other.

Surprisingly, this is a view from a free parking lot called Utagahama. (歌が浜駐車場)

Until 1872, some places at the lake did not allow women, horses and cows to maintain its purity and sacred ground.
