10 days Tohoku Tour report – day1 Tokyo to Kinugawa

Welcome again from Malaysia! It’s been six years since we last met.
After departing from Tokyo, we headed towards Nikko. As we entered the Nikko-Utsunomiya Toll Road, the scenery changed dramatically with fresh green mountains in view. First, we drove up the steep curves of Irohazaka to reach Akechidaira.From the observation deck, we could see Mt. Nantai, Lake Chuzenji and Kegon Falls stretching out below us. After that we made our way to Kegon Falls. The waterfall’s basin, where the water from Lake Chuzenji falls from a 97-meter-high cliff, was spectacular, with water splashing everywhere. Tonight, we stay at a hotel in Kinugawa Onsen and celebrate our reunion with delicious food and Sake. Kanpai,Cheers!!
