Kishu Toshogu Shrine

Shrine
This Gongen-style shrine was built in 1621 by Tokugawa Yorinobu, the first lord of the Kishu domain, to provide protection for the Nankaido road. Tokugawa Ieyasu and Tokugawa Yorinobu are enshrined here as deities. The shrine is brilliantly decorated with lacquerware and sculptures featuring both the Kano and Tosa styles, and it is called the “Nikko of Kansai.” It has been designated an Important Cultural Property as a representative structure from the early Edo period.

Review

  • Pretty shrine with very nice view over the city, need to climb up hundreds of steps

    Its a very pretty shrine with very nice view over the city but you need to walk and climb up hundreds of steps before reaching the top. So please ensure you have at least 40 minutes.
  • コロナで前年の特別拝観が無くなった分を繰り越していたのでお参り出来ました。

    本来なら2020年の春に行われた特別拝観を緊急事態宣言で中止になった分が繰り越されましたのでお参り出来ました。当然長い石段を登りますが次の機会は困難なので頑張りました。
  • 長い石段の上にある東照宮

    徳川御三家の紀州、その東照宮です。杜を抜けると、108段の石段の上に楼門があります。本殿は左甚五郎の彫刻や狩野探幽の襖絵があり、コロナ前は1時間に一度、巫女さんや神職さんによる案内がありました。
