(4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Going to see castles and ruins of a castle the next morning, family travel, Izu stayed in the car and start to shun National Park. Visited the excavation site of the Castle Tower in there. To try and feel so close, is going to look after Kakegawa Castle was heard from the direction of the excavation kunouzan Toshogu Shrine. Sea view from the hotel is the closest seems to be everywhere 500 yen. Less than 1200 steps up the stairs climb from the parking lot. In the elementary school boys just like in exercise, I went ahead and slowly climbed up with my wife. Admire the view of the Ocean on the way to. Whether stone had built the old man how deep emotion. Talisman INRO bought the kids a shrine and shrine Temple and is favorite to became. Staff at the Museum and exhibits include the Tokugawa Shogun armor from generation to generation, but children seem intrigued little visit was unscheduled.

  • In the aerial tramway went from Japan. Kunouzan Toshogu Shrine, other treasures tea can rest. Go up stairs and Toshogu Shrine and Tomb of Ieyasu in deeper? There. Stone was very slippery in the rain, so be careful.

  • Go Japan ropeway is a ridiculous exercise and stairs from the Toshogu Shrine was dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, at the foot of access is good, so sunlight will be Nikko Toshogu Shrine and a solemn shrine, and Ieyasu's Tomb and sacred feelings, since people could visit slowly.
