Nikko Photodiary: Short Escape from Tokyo Summer

Nikko

Hey everyone! Recently we did a short trip to Nikko when the weather was super good with pleasant rains and clouds.

Though I have been to Nikko before as well (check here), this time it was purely to enjoy the weather and a long drive along with a bunch of friends. It was a very wise decision to go out and skip Tokyo heat for a while; we loved the weather in Nikko and for the very first time we stayed at a traditional ryokan...yay! 😀

Today I am sharing photos from this Nikko trip with you all, I hope you enjoy watching these! 🙂

Nikko I fail at words for this beauty. We stopped at a random area with a stream flowing next to this road. It was so relaxing to witness nature at its purest best! Nature at its best! We actually stopped the car, took our slippers off, and enjoyed this time, which we will always be so special and unforgettable for us! Nature at its best!
