  • Superb place. Great visit both inside the building, and outside through the garden. A must see in Nikko.
  • Went during the momiji period. Amazing colors, peaceful garden, very interesting history. There are many short explanations inside, and the staff can also gives you more details. They are truly passionate, and it enhances your experience.
