Sneak Peek of Kathryn’s Japan Trip: Nikko, Tokyo and Utsunomiya!

After over 24 hours of travelling I’m finally home from my first trip to Japan. While I was there for work there was still plenty of time to explore! Now I’m trying to adjust back to a 13 hour time difference, but in the meantime enjoy this sneak peek until I have time to write about everything!

Our first stop was Nikko, Japan. Here we explored Toshogu Shrine, Nikko Futarasan Jinja shrine and made a visit to Kegon Falls by Lake Chuzenji!
