Nikko (Japan) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Nikko in Japan.
North of Tokyo, and surrounded by extensive woodland, is the shrine complex of Nikko. The elegant Taiyuin-Byo Shrine uniquely combines the shrine and temple architecture of the Momayama Era. The Futarasan Shrine lies opposite, almost hidden within the hills and forests which, particularly in autumn, enchant with a blaze of vivid colour. The first Tokugawa-Shogun, Ieyasu, left precise regulations for his burial. As both an incarnation of a Buddhist and Shinto deity, the powerful ruler wanted to protect his empire even in death. Twenty years after Ieyasu‘s demise, his grandson Iemitsu assembled up to fifteen thousand craftsmen and over a hundred of the most important artists of the time. Influenced by the Chinese Kano School, and in only two years of construction, they created massive monuments on the edge of the Nikko Mountains, the complex of which comprises both a Buddhist and Shinto area. Past a five-storey pagoda and stone and bronze lanterns, the route leads to the Holy Stable. Three Wise Monkeys decorate the building which see, hear and speak no evil. For two years, craftsmen were constantly busy with construction work, design, gilding, painting and varnishing. Thus, without doubt, came into being the most powerful and magnificent temple complex in Japan. Nikko encapsulates history, highly-revered burial ground and a refuge of faith.

Kyoto (Japan) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Kyoto in Japan.
Kyoto is considered to be the cradle of Japanese culture, an ancient imperial city with twelve hundred years of history. Emperor Saga honoured the monk, Kukai, by giving him the eastern Toji Temple as the centre of Shingon Buddhism. The lecture hall is home to a figurine-mandala consisting of twenty-one wooden sculptures and in the centre is the mighty figure of cosmic Buddha, Dainichi. On the northern edge of the city is the Kinkakuji Temple, the Golden Pavilion. It is one of the most beautiful buildings of the Muromachi Period whose gilded facade reflects in a pond. The Kamigamo Shrine was one of the most influential and powerful shrines during Heian times. It was here that nobles and members of the imperial court sought proximity to the Shinto heads of the shrine. It was founded in the late seventh centuryand its thirty-six buildings are classified as national cultural treasures. The well-preserved Gion Quarter east of the Kamo River is known for its traditional performances, such as that of koto music. Gagaku music and dance is also featured, as once performed in the Japanese royal court.Kyoto is ancient Japan, a place of both culture and religion.

Complete Trip Guide From Tokyo to Nikko JAPAN - UNCUT VERSION

Nikko is a small city in Japan’s Tochigi Prefecture, in the mountains north of Tokyo. It’s the site of Toshogu, the famed Shinto shrine established in 1617 as a lavish memorial for Tokugawa Ieyasu, founding ruler of the Tokugawa shogunate, or Edo Period. The shrine comprises the gilded Yomeimon Gate, the main sanctuary set in a cedar grove and the tomb itself.

Japan is a lovely country to be visited and we loved to go there again someday.

Latvia Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Latvia.
Latvia is a small Baltic republic, a country with a strong national identity, situated within the centre of the Baltic States. Throughout the course of history its desire for freedom has always taken it forward. Riga is the capital of Latvia, a Hanseatic city and European capital of culture. Saint Petri Church is one of the oldest in the centre of the city and, at the same time, a main landmark. It is one of the most important sacred buildings of the Middle Ages and is closely linked with the development of the city. Close to Riga is Jurmala, today a popular health resort on the Latvian Riviera, with splendid bay-windowed villas, battlements and towers, formerly Baroque and later with a nod at Gothic. Thirty kilometres of beaches with bright erinaceous quartz and a mild climate created a holiday paradise in the nineteenth century. Amid the fertile Zemgale Plain is the magnificent, huge Baroque Jelgava Castle, the largest in Latvia. In 1737 the residence of the then secular ruler of the Duchy Of Kurland was built on the ramparts of an ancient castle of the Livonian Order. Beneath the southeast corner of the castle is the Crypt Of The Dukes, a tomb vault with thirty superbly decorated sarcophagi of tin and wood. The picturesque primordial river valley of Gauja has for centuries attracted travellers from each corner of the world. This Livonian Switzerland not only has the charm of primary nature, but also all the ambience of the Middle Ages. Today’s Latvia is now striking a healthy balance between a market economy, ancient traditions and the burdensome legacy of a turbulent past. Its journey into the European Union has been a success, thanks to courage, strength and faith!

Riga (Latvia) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Riga in Latvia.
Riga is the capital of Latvia, a Hanseatic city and European capital of culture. Petri Church has been at the centre of various conflicts between the military order of the Livonian Brothers Of The Sword, and the local population. In 1666, its tower collapsed, buried eight people and, in 1721, lightning destroyed it completely. Czar Peter The Great had it rebuilt, a hundred and twenty seven metres high and with a wonderful view. Mentzendorff House was a manorial property which German merchants had built at the end of the seventeenth century. Carefully renovated, its original splendour has been fully restored along with its splendid ceilings. Marien Cathedral is situated in the centre of the city and is the most important religious building in the Baltic States. Its age, dimensions and contrasting architectural styles bear witness to a long history and its famous organ, built in 1883, contains a hundred and twenty four registers and almost seven thousand wooden and metal pipes. Where today is the highest television tower in Europe, the Latvians strived to fight for their independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. Latvia has frequently been occupied by the Crusaders, the Teutonic Order, the Swedes, and finally, the Tsars. The Open Air Museum Of Folk Culture was built in 1924 and is one of the oldest open air museums in Europe. From each of Latvia’s regions, dwelling houses, churches and windmills have been re-assembled, with furniture and everyday objects. Situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Juglas the museum recalls the daily life of Latvia’s farmers, craftsmen and fishermen. In keeping with the age-old traditions of the Hanseatic League, the very heart of the Baltic beats within Latvia's metropolis, and also with an elegant lust for life, Riga is an extraordinary treasure!

Gaujas (Latvia) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Guajas in Latvia.
The picturesque and primordial river valley of Gauja lies within the heart of Latvia and has for centuries attracted travellers from each corner of the world. This ‘Livonian Switzerland’ not only possesses the charm of primary nature but also all of the ambience of a mysterious past. From 1878 the new Sigulda Castle was built for Russian prince, Cropotkin, on the site of the outer bailey of an Order castle. Sigulda Castle was built by the Order Of The Brothers Of The Sword but, following union with the Teutonic Order, passed over to the Livonians. Cesis is located in the middle of the Highlands and is one of the oldest and most splendid towns in the country. Saint John‘s Church is also the country’s oldest basilica. It is the largest Gothic church outside Riga and was founded in 1282 as the main church of the Brothers Of The Sword. From 1778 the ‘New Castle’ was inhabited by the noble Von Silvers Family and today the Museum Of History And Art is housed there. Since the thirteenth century, the mediaeval castle has shared its fate together with the city in fighting against Russian, Polish and Swedish armies. Despite much damage, today the ruins are still impressive and is where unique nature combines with atmospheric historic buildings.
