Day 2 in Nikko!!

The Grade 6 students and chaperones enjoyed a great 2nd day in Nikko! We started out the morning with a traditional Japanese breakfast, followed by a stroll to the Rinno-Ji Temple and Tosho-go Shrine. The tour guide showed us around explaining all the stories, history and facts about the sacred area. We saw the original See no Evil, Speak no Evil and Hear no Evil Monkey shrine as well as the Sleeping Cat shrine. We had a few light showers throughout the walk but otherwise the sun was out and great temperature! After our curry lunch at the hotel we headed to Edo Wonderland where we experienced what times were like in the Edo Era in a village setting. Dressing up in kimonos, peasant and samurai outfits. The girls enjoyed a traditional Edo school lesson and crafted a Japanese bean bag, otedama. Strolling around the Edo village was a great way to spend the afternoon before heading back to dinner. The talent show is kicking off soon and the girls are preparing! A great way to celebrate Day 2 of the Grade 6 trip!
