A sacred site for both Shinto and Buddhists since the 8th century, Nikko is home to a number of UNESCO World Heritage temples and shrines and gorgeous nature.
Yasukuni Shrine, one of the best known Shinto shrines, has often been seen as a symbol of imperial Japan’s war history.
Easily one of the most recognizable and most popular of Japan’s shrines, Fushimi Inari sits at the foot of the 764-foot-high Inariyama Mountain.
