Taiyuimbyo Shrine Reviews
我們在日光的第一站就是到大猷院。當時人不大多，也有文字解說，只是較難理解。內裏還有專人作日語解說，可惜本人日語能力有限，只懂一點點單字，如再加文字解說為佳。 more »Our first stop in daylight is to the Grand Court. At that time people are not most, there are text explanations, just understanding. There are still people to explain the day, but I have limited ability to understand only a little bit of words, such as adding words to explain as good.
最初に口コミ投稿してから６年が経ちます。この間、私は１度拝観していますが、今回は妻の強っての希望で改めて拝観しました。いつもながら東照宮の金色の鮮やかさや参拝者の賑わいの雰囲気とは異なり、静かで清閑な空間に祖父家康を凌いではならないという家光の遺言による黒を基調にした重厚な造りの仁王門を潜ると、拝殿から本殿までの道のりには比較的疎らな拝観者の中に多くの外国人観光客が見受けられました。彼等も大猶院廟... more »It has been six years since I first posted a word of mouth. The other day, I have seen it once, but this time I visited it again with my wife's strong hope.

They also looked into national treasures and important cultural properties from the Niomen Gate to the main shrine, as if they were studying the history and origin of the Daiyoin Pass. It was my first experience of being lucky, but I received valuable explanations from monks about iemitsu's love for Ieyasu, which was hidden in Daijo-in, as well as related national treasures and cultural properties in the main shrine. In addition, I purchased "Ryujin Fumaya" as a gift of Daiyoin. It is a broken arrow that it is enshrined for the rest of one's life when a bad thing is cursed, and the wish is fulfilled.
