Kunozan Toshogu Shrine, Shizuoka

4.3
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.

  • But climb the stairs with a cable car route, down the stairs is recommended. 1159-may, less steep, but if you climb slowly around the pool and fitness.

  • Stopped in the middle of bike walk. You must climb 1000 stone steps going from a Tosho-gu shrine. Climbing is pretty tight, and great view of plastic greenhouse of the strawberry patch of the Pacific Ocean and the lower bound. Enter in the Toshogu Shrine and Museum also paid the admission fee of 800 yen. In richly-colored as well as sunlight Tosho-gu shrine, the instant shines. The Gundam or dedication. Ieyasu Kung Temple is also at the top, the description of the "money tree" is very interesting. Exhibits in the Museum, and Spain's 16th-century clock, this is pretty nice. I think including the view of the ocean when the stone is quite tight but the weather is nice, very fun spot.
