Nikko Toshogu Shrine (日光東照宮)

A shrine located in Sannai, Nikko City. It was founded in 1617 as a shrine dedicated to the Tosho Daigongen (Tokugawa Ieyasu). There are many buildings including eight National Treasures and 34 Important Cultural Properties in the shrine grounds as well as the beautifully adorned and richly colored carvings of the Three Wise Monkeys—Mizaru, Iwazaru and Kikazaru (see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil)—and the Nemuri-neko (sleepy cat) attributed to Hidari Jingoro. Nikko Toshogu is also registered as a World Heritage Site as one of the Shrines and Temples of Nikko.

Review of Okumiya

There are too many valuable things in Nikko, but what you cannot miss is Toshogu, and its highlights are Yomeimon Gate and Okumiya. This is the bottom part of the shrine, and once only Shogun was...

Es el mausoleo del Shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu, hay que subir bastantes escaleras desde donde tendras unas buenas vistas.

階段を10分くらい登ったところにあるため体力が必要です。他の建物に比べると派手さは少ないですが、厳かな雰囲気あります。

          Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi’s capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
