We went to Nikko for the dude's birthday back in December, but it was rather cold! We should have known not to go north in the wintertime. We saw many World Heritage sites, a waterfall, and a sign that monkeys may bite us and steal our food if we carry plastic bags around the Lake Chuzeni area. We did not try going into an onsen (hot spring), even though these are quite popular. We just couldn't fathom being naked around strangers!
