Japan 2012 Nikko 1

The next set of photos are from an overnight trip to Nikko. I had already visited Nikko in 2009 for a short day trip, but this time I had a lot more time to take photos and explore around the temple/shrine grounds. Renovations were taking place at the Rinnoji temple, fortunately the Toshogu complex was still open. I really enjoyed the architecture and the intricately carved details of the temples and shrines.
