The UNESCO World Heritage Site, Nikko Temple is about a 90 min bullet train ride from Tokyo. After the Senja Matsuri festival was over, Kian took the trip to check out this amazing place.┬áSomething that is a less well known fact, is that a lot of Japanese tattoo reference can be traced directly back to Nikko Temple where the great artists we all know and love got much of their reference from for both paintings and woodblock prints. There are 103 buildings or structures at Nikko, all surrounded by nature, peace and tranquiltiy. There are two Shinto Shrines, a Buddhist temple, nine of the structures are designated “National Treasures of Japan” and the remaining 94 are “Important Cultural Properties”
