M and I spent the day up in Nikko yesterday, at a friend's wedding. It was lots of fun; our friends dressed in Japanese Hakama and Shiroi Kimono (white Kimono), the traditional wedding garb and were married in a Shinto ceremony at one of the shrines there. After, we all (20 people or so) went to a nearby restaurant for a fantastic dinner and reception for a few hours.
One of the parts I really enjoyed was the groom getting behind the drum kit to run through a short set with his band. They're very talented guys and that was just a nice touch to add to the reception.
Other than that, there aren't too many details I can give out on a public blog, but, suffice to say that if you're in this area, and you're thinking of getting married, Nikko Toshogu Shrine is a great venue and the Misty Mountain Restaurant is an excellent place for a reception.
Now, I'm going to go try to walk off a little bit more of this hangover.
