Tochigi, Japan

Utsunomiya is the capital of Tochigi and the largest city in the prefecture, located less than one hour north of Tokyo by shinkansen and just southeast of the famous temples and shrines of Nikko. A modern-day commercial and industrial center, the area has roots in the mining industry, and the local oya stone has been quarried over the centuries to be used as building material.
