I think this was a one day trip to Nikko by train and bus to visit one of Japan's premier sites, the Tokugawa Shrine.

Found this on the internet:
"Ieyasu Tokugawa was born in the warring states period. He survived the chaos, and unified entire the country. Ieyasu was assigned as Seii-taishogun (Great generalissimo) in 1603 and opened the Tokugawa Shogunate in Edo (Tokyo). He watched the whole nation even after he retired. Ieyasu left last instruction, which was about after the death."

"Enshrine my dead body in Mt. Kuno (His hometown in Shizuoka prefecture) for the first year of the death. (Omission) And built a small shrine in Nikko and enshrine me as the God.I will be the guardian of Japan."
