Nikko Things to Do: 202 reviews and 460 photos
Probably the most famous wooden monkeys in Japan, and the most well-known attraction in Nikko. The lively wood carvings are located on the outside wall of the staple close to Omotemon Gate in the Toshogu Shrine complex.
There are 8 panels altogether, and the most famous one is the "See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil", a Buddhist teaching which means we won't be evil if we don't see, speak, or hear evil.
Directions: Inside Toshogu Shrine close to Omotemon Gate
