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.

  • A stone stairs feel history-and was kind to explain, like a travel guide and looking around while I do. It seems to say and see the main hall from the stone lantern and off-center, it does not complete the building. Aerial tramway in return, in the car and go on the seaward side, strawberry picking to walk a few minutes from the sea and took it easy.

  • I visited 2017 / 1 / 5. Two approaches how to climb the mountain on foot from the coast and way down from Japan with a ropeway. Use the ropeway roundtrip and admission ticket set is 1750 yen. I think it's expensive. Coast since stairs are so steep stairs, not idle uphill remorse was gone here, so what. Toshogu Shrine is only be designated as a national treasure, is respectable in its own way. Loves was Tokugawa who might be impressed.

  • To the lack of exercise beforehand went down the stairs of the coast. It was crowded because it was the 1/2 with strawberry picking farms parking lot (paid access), the smooth. Gorgeous small shrine is a decoration is a sight to see. Grave and was buried at the beginning of Ieyasu, feel the history.
