'City Conquest' Filiming Sites in Japan

As reported, Kim Hyun Joong's drama will start filming in Japan on July 10. Several spots in Japan now are becoming a hot topic just because of the drama and so I got curious about those places. I've read the book 1 of  the manhwa 'City Conquest' so I decided to take a look at the chosen places where uri Leader and the rest of the casts will start shooting and it quite impressed me. Japan really is a beautiful place. I remember when I was a kid, I dreamed of living in Japan because of it's nice places and when I saw those places again, I realized I still like to live there. ^^

The primary shooting sites will take its place in Nikko Edo Wonderland, Utsonomiya City and Kinugawa Hot Spring. They will also shoot in places like Tochigi Perfecture located in Kanto Region, the one located in the northern part the beautiful UNESCO world heritage site in the famous Nikko Toshogu Shrine. Another is the Oku-Nikko Waterfalls, the special natural monument designates as the world's longest tree-lined avenue in the world the 'Cedar Avenue of Nikko'.

To give you more idea about those sites here are some photos.
