Nikko - pictures - 10-13-2010, 11:02 PM

I decided to focus more on building lavish decorative motives (especially the dragons), and some details usually missed in a tour de frenzy.

Pictures were taken in the shinto shrine complex of Nikko, called Toshogu, which is a UNESCO world heritage site.

Nikkō Tōshō-gū - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Unfortunately main building was undergoing renovation, and if I remember correctly, it has spectacular dragons on its roof. Ah well, I'll get them next time.

Ah this one as well, but i was referring to the building in the main complex, where you can see the sleeping cat and the dragon painting on the ceiling.

Thanks Sheemy, sure we can as long as it does not involve cutting hands and doing the blood bonding
