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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
