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.

Kunozan Toshogu Shrine Reviews
国指定史跡となっている久能山には元来久能寺があったといわれています。江戸時代に徳川家康が死後、東照宮大権現となり廟が造られて、大権現となって眠っている東照宮です。この位置は、家康が生まれた岡崎から久能山を結び富士山につながる直線で結べる位置にあります。日光の東照宮の位置関係が江戸から直線で結んで富士山と三角形となる位置にあるように、何か考えられて作られた位置なのかと考えられるという説があります。ロ... more »It is said that there was originally Kuno-ji Temple in Kunoyama, which is a nationally designated historical site. After Tokugawa Ieyasu's death in the Edo period, the tomb was built to become the master of Toshogu, and it is toshogu shrine where it becomes a large right present and sleeps. This position is located in a straight line connecting Mt. Kuno from Okazaki where Ieyasu was born and connecting mt. Kunoyama. There is a theory that it is thought that it is a position made by thinking something so that the position relation of Toshogu of Nikko is connected in a straight line from Edo and it becomes a triangle with Mt. Fuji. There is a way to climb by ropeway or by stairs, but the ropeway is recommended.
來到靜岡市，絕對不能錯過這景點，坐公車往日本平大約快50分鐘的車程，看完日本平後坐纜車前往，路線十分順暢，纜車票加東照宮參拜與博物館，套票要1750日圓，也可選擇從前面山下一路爬上來，但這樣較累，那邊的公車班次也少，不建議這麼做。 東照宮在日光也有一個，這邊是依照德川家康遺願所建，規模較小但依舊是國寶等級的寺廟，不愧是統治日本近三百年的幕府創始者的廟，就跟我之前去的日光東照宮一樣，蓋的豪華燦爛，每... more »Come to the city, you can't go through this scene, take the bus to Japan Flat-da-Ka-soon 50 minutes, after watching the Japanese flat after sitting to go, the road is very good, the ticket plus the ticket to visit the museum, the ticket to 1750 days, can also be in front of the mountain road climb up, but this kind of shift, that shift is also less, Don't build to do that. There is also one in the daylight, this is in accordance with the Togawa family Kangyu built, the model is small but depending on the country and other temples, worthy of ruling Japan nearly three hundred years ago, the founder of the shogun, just like the sun i went before, the building, every one of the pillar semboes have a look, But a little stroll can find that this is much smaller than the daylight, half a hour can be finished, use a package of tickets, out of the can also go to the nearby museum, there is a display of some generation armor, but the viewing is low.
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.
