前天晚上睡得不好...結果昨晚就睡過頭了...
一早起來剛6:30...但已經誤了第一班新幹線...不過幸好有JR Pass...可以免費再訂一張票...
n640261152_1408798_3789
若沒有的話...這一覺就睡掉了4600日元... 這個月日本處於梅雨季節...每天早上天都是昏黑昏黑的...
但坐上新干線後...天氣就開始好轉... 順便給斑竹的新干線一個寫真...特大的車頭...就像飛機頭一樣...
n640261152_1408797_2486
或許這就是新干線跑的快的秘密???時速300km...
 
坐到宇都宮...換上日光線的普通電車...
n640261152_1408801_7460
天氣變得更好...
藍天白雲...

電車駛入一片衫樹林中...
n640261152_1408810_4709
車上的人很少...可以一個人坐在窗邊享受一下農田風光...
n640261152_1408816_5971 經過兩個小時的火車旅行...到達日光...
n640261152_1474117_8828
這是一個在東京北面的小鎮...來的人多數是遊客...所以早上的日光靜悄悄的...
n640261152_1408851_1857
可愛的Ladies準備去上學...
n640261152_1408871_6760 n640261152_1408852_3095 從車站走十五分鐘就到達日光的風景區...
n640261152_1408853_4408
第一個景點叫神橋...所有和神有關的東西一定是油成紅色...
不過這點紅在這青山綠水中...反而相當襯... 神橋是凡人不可走的...想走就要給錢...
給錢就昇 level 成神人了???
神橋後面便是日光的神社群... 詳細我就不多講了...大家看相吧...
n640261152_1408872_7578
n640261152_1408870_5972 n640261152_1408869_5142
這裡還供奉著真正統一日本的將軍...得川家康的墓...
不過爬上去蠻費力...要過近200台台階...
n640261152_1408957_2194
n640261152_1474120_9874
上去的人全都累趴下了...
但在墓旁還有顆600歲高齡的大樹...
德川奧宮的名物...睡貓...
n640261152_1474119_9521 在日本有很多鳥居...大部分也是油成紅色...但也有些用石頭做的...
n640261152_1408885_5121
有些用合金做的...
這合金據說是用金...銀...銅混起來做的...感覺就是什麼貴就往裡混...
 
這三只猴子是???
n640261152_1408877_2378
非禮勿看...非禮勿聽...非禮勿說...
日本還有很多地方留下了中國的痕跡...畢竟"本是同根生"... 在神社群逛到十一點多...用種滿衫樹的參道連起來的神社群實在太大...
n640261152_1408873_8413
n640261152_1408876_1512
人也太多...人怕出名豬怕壯...名人死了也無法安息哪...
神社的屋簷都閃閃發光...
n640261152_1474118_9175
或許是包了層金的緣故... 接下來就坐巴士去華嚴瀑布看看...這個瀑布被稱為是日本的三大瀑布...
剛上巴士的時候會發一張指定票...票上有個號碼...每個號碼就代表不同的上車口...
n640261152_1408886_5966
在車出口處會有個顯示板...板上標著不同號碼的價錢...
斑竹剛上車時拿了個三號...150yen...
但車途過了一半...票價已經跳到600yen...
到最後下車時...要給950yen...就像股市般說漲就漲... 從巴士下來...只感覺像去了冰洞...
n640261152_1408887_8924
華嚴瀑布在山谷中...斑竹估計當時只有十五度以下...
馬上穿上大衣...感覺好些...望望四周...一片大霧...什麼也看不見...
n640261152_1408888_9776
不祥的感覺... Poster上的華嚴瀑布應該是這樣...
n640261152_1408889_609
但斑竹去到時只聽得見水聲...一點瀑布的影子都看不見...一萬個無奈...
n640261152_1408890_1438
在山上吃個暖暖的咖哩飯...日本的飯菜份量都少得可憐...又少又貴啊...600yen...
吃完霧也沒退...只好選擇離開...
n640261152_1408891_2299 去巴士站途中的另一個鳥居...
n640261152_1408904_1142  
只顧著照相...霧中就誤了一輛巴士...
n640261152_1408906_2814
只好等待...
日光的巴士一小時一輛...今天的運氣真是最差了!!!斑竹想...
n640261152_1408905_1993
等待使人發狂...再加上路上的車不多...所以斑竹就跑到路中間玩自拍...小朋友千萬不要學!!! 但沒想到等著等著...突然一陣風吹來...霧開始散去...
n640261152_1408907_3640
斑竹馬上跑回瀑布...
n640261152_1408908_4467
情況有所改善...雖然無法認清瀑布...
n640261152_1408909_4067
但起碼能看到觀景台前面是有些東西... 所以斑竹決定等下去...
如果我是Wyee...我一定會向天父祈禱...
但現在斑竹在日本...所以斑竹改為向天照大神許願... 在等的同時認識到來自美國的Valerie...兩個人一邊吹吹水...一邊等霧散...
n640261152_1408910_4903
Valerie從美國中部來...剛辭了工作...想去學校再進修一下...主打護理...
大約等了一個小時...我們決定到別的地方先走走...
n640261152_1474122_571 n640261152_1408913_7387 n640261152_1408911_5730 在瀑布上游其實有個湖...叫中禪寺湖...十分平靜的湖水...
n640261152_1408915_3649 n640261152_1408914_2814 n640261152_1408912_6567
若下次有空一定要在上面划船玩玩...
在湖邊走的時候...太陽出來了...
n640261152_1474121_229
斑竹估計瀑布那邊霧也散得差不多...就再回去看看... 不錯...
n640261152_1474123_928
非常好!!!
n640261152_1408920_7471
看來天照神也蠻照顧斑竹的...
這就是斑竹干等三個小時的結果!!! 在現場看瀑布...氣勢就是不同...這好像是斑竹第一次見大瀑布呢...
n640261152_1408917_5313
觀景台下面有一條隧道...
n640261152_1408921_8350
可以在瀑布下面看...
n640261152_1408916_4454
一下去就好像進入黑色暴雨區域一般...全濕了... 今天不錯...心滿意足在陽光下離開...
n640261152_1408922_9208
但又要再等巴士...
n640261152_1408923_82
下次真要好好算算時間... 晚餐...在上野車站買的上野限定便當...蠻貴的...1000yen...
n640261152_1408928_188 n640261152_1408927_9292
味道也普通...
n640261152_1408926_8429
明早的早餐...飯團x2...

Don't say けっこ (Kekko) until you've seen 日光 (Nikko).  Nikko is considered a place that all Japanese people should visit before they die.  The nature is pristine.  Kegon waterfall is a must for anyone coming to Nikko.  Lake Chuzenji is another must see.  In the winter, the lake is a little somber, but in the summer and autumn, the water is a shade of blue matched only in paintings.  

Nikko has plenty of shrines and temples to keep any history nut happy.  My personal favorite is the Toshogu shrine (東照宮).  While this shrine with its extensive complex, collection of stone lanterns, and 5 story pagoda are truly amazing, I would recommend choosing a ryoukan (traditional Japanese hotel) closer to the Shinkyo bridge.  This sacred red bridge is famous and, when seen in the morning light, it is easy to understand why.  It is a marvelous sight when framed with the mist coming down from the mountains at daybreak.

If you do choose to visit Nikko in the winter, each of these attractions has a completely different atmosphere about them that is enchanting in a whole new way.  One word of warning however.  The wind in Nikko could bring a even a Korean warlord to his knees (anyone who has lived in Korea, especially close to the North Korean border, knows what I mean).  Remember to bring a warm coat.
