The following photographs were made on April 20th, within 400 meters east and 400 meters west of Zen Hostel in Nikko Japan. Rt. 149 is certainly the most beautiful road to get to the world heritage area, Toshogu Shrine, Chuzenji Lake, and Senjogahara.
It is a very scenic road that follows Black River.
