    Frustrated experience!

    The Nikko Tour was really interesting as our guide taught us a lot about the city of Tokyo and Nikko. Regarding the tour on itself, I had a great time in the Tosho-gu Shrine as it was a beautiful sanctuary, where we could hear the interesting history of this temple. Then, we had a typical delicious japaneese lunch with some tempura, ramen, grilled beef and some vegetables. However, because of the foggy weather, the experience in the Kegon Falls and Lake Chuzenji was really disappointing. Indeed, we could not see a lot, especially in the Keggon falls as we did not see this anything of one the most beautiful waterfall in japan. Hence, I can conclude that our guide was really friendly and I learned a lot from this tour, nevertheless I felt really frustrated not to see much of the lake and nothing about the waterfall.
