Weekend Photo Theme is a weekly photography article where Dale or Franca choose a theme, select 5 pictures to sum that theme up & tie them together with their interests of Architecture, Art, Design & Travel.

Going to Nikko National Park was a fantastic opportunity to not only see the old heart of the country, but also for Franca to see one of her longest friends who she’d met whilst studying English back when we still lived in the UK.

The national treasure of Nikko is best seen in person such is the magnificent beauty of the colors that surround these old temples, and should you ever get the chance to visit Japan, Nikko is a must-not-miss.

Here is a brief glimpse at the age and beauty of the national park in Nikko.
