Ueno Toshogu (上野東照宮)

This was established in 1627 to enshrine Tokugawa Ieyasu, and it also enshrines Tokugawa Yoshimune and Tokugawa Yoshinobu. The shrine is located within Ueno-onshi-koen Park and after undergoing major renovations in 1651, it escaped calamities such as wars and earthquakes that followed, and is an important spot to see authentic architecture from the Edo period. The heavily gilded and splendid main building is also known as the shrine of gold. There is a peony garden on the premises and the shrine’s “peony festival” that takes place in spring is well-known.

This is a Toshogu, which is dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of Edo shogunate. Although this one is not so famous as a Toshogu in Nikko, the beauty of the main building deserves attention...

Well worth a visit even though there wasn’t any flowers really out. It’s a quiet and peaceful place and found the whole area somewhere to just chill out and soak up Japan. A photographers dream...

Loved this structure and the surrounding lanterns and statues. You can see the 5 story pagoda from here also. The gates on this building are incredible as are the grounds and loads of huge bronze...

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
