This is from a series of films by Global Television shot all over world, giving well photographed introductions to various places, of which we will be focusing on the ones of interest to Buddhists.
The films are quite light introductions to their subjects, mainly good photography, well chosen soundtracks, and a reasonable, but sometimes inaccurate, narration giving a cultural and historical introduction to its subject.

This week’s video is about the Shinto and Buddhist pilgrimage site of Nikko, which lies north of Tokyo. We visit some of the more famlous shrines and temples and see its natural surroundings, as well as learn about its founding, history and modern significance.
