Nikko, located in Tochigi, 3 hours by train from Tokyo, is a true gem of Japan.
I spent 3 days there and enjoyed every second.
The life and the street are quiet like in an ancient movie.
The forests look like they’ve never changed in the last thousands of years.
The lakes are untouched. On the morning I visited Chuzenji Lake, there were not even another tourist.
When I was breathing the purely pure air of the town, I wondered just how many good things one had done in the past life to be able to be born here in this life.
That was an absolute peace.
