Meg's Nikko Trip Web Post!
Hi, Meg here!
We went to Nikko on March 10th. It took me about 4 hours to get there from my house.
It was so far and I had to wake up at 4am in order to get ready!
When we got to Nikko station we all went to buy food. Then we got on a bus to go to Toshogu shrine.
Mel, Michiru and I bought Daifuku [What is Daifuku? It's sweet mochi usually filled with red bean paste, but here it was filled with custard and other delicious flavours. See wikipedia's article for more information! - PW]. It was delicious!!! We even took a picture with the guy selling the Daifuku.
We also took a picture with all the students at the entrance.
We saw a lot of Japanese traditional buildings that have been here for many hundreds of yearsand there were many hidden animals!
Mel, Michiru and I were in a team so we took many pictures of the statue
After that we climbed the steps to Tokugawa's tomb. It was so long that when I got to the top I couldn't feel my legs! At the top we all had a break on a bench but then it started raining. It was cold ...... But it felt to me as if it were only raining while we were high up.
On the way back home we had lunch /dinner together. We went to a restaurant
and I ate ramen and curry. We walked on a bridge and the view from there was
