Travel Tips for Nikko

The Sacred Horse

by Wild_Orchid


This beautiful white horse was a gift from the government of New Zealand to the Japanese government. It lives in a stable within the compounds of this massive Toshogu temple complex. The sacred horse is only brought out for public viewing only twice a day for a few minutes. We were lucky because we were there during one of these times.
Isn't he just magnificent? I was lucky enough to see him up close and managed to take a few photos.

There is some protocol to be observed. We were informed to keep very quiet in order not to startle the horse. In addition, no one must come near the sacred horse or try to touch it. The path is cleared before the keeper brings the horse out. The horse allows itself to be photographed, and after a few minutes is led away back to its stables.
