The ornate Chinese-influenced shrines of the Tokugawa Shoguns lie hidden in amongst temples in the forests of Nikko north of Tokyo. If you set off early you have time to take the switchback road up to Chuzenji Lake plateau, an area of outstanding natural beauty with three impressive waterfalls and also a couple of very good Japanese-style ryokan if you would like to unwind and stay for the night.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.
