Pay a visit to the historic, spiritual, and strikingly ornamental Kunozan Toshogu Shrine, a Shinto shrine located on a mountain. Particularly well known as the burial place of the first Shogun of the Tokugawa Shogunate--the last feudal Japanese military government--the shrine was founded in 1617. The main hall and area for offerings represent two of the most notable structures of the shrine, designated National Important Cultural Properties by the Japanese government. They feature ornate wood carvings, painted patterns over black lacquer, and gold leaf showing the colorful and vibrant style of the late Momoyama period.

  • I went by ropeway from Nippondaira. There are a few stairs from the station, but I think it's very easy considering coming from the Kuno coast. It was my first visit at this age, but the exhibits were also interesting. It is gorgeous.

  • You can go up the stairs to Toshogu Shrine, but it is easy to use the ropeway from Nippondaira because it is quite steep. There is ieyasu's bill.

  • It’s beautiful historical building. I liked a trail to the top of the mountain to visit shrine.
  • Very good shrine with a long history. The stairs leading to the shrine gives an added adventure to reach the shrine from below. One can get to Nihondira zoo by car and take the ropeway to reach the shrine also. The view of the ocean from this place is also very good. The entry fees to the shrine is 1500¥ for adults.
