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.

  • Beautiful shrine that buries the shogan Dokukawa. My highlight of this shrine was that the display gunpla as part of the shrine. (As shizuoka is the home of Japan plastic model manufacturing) If you live at Nippondaira Hotel, they will take you to the rope way station to rude over.
  • I love walking to the shrine, there was so many stairs and in every step you could more to the Pacific Ocean
  • Quite nice scene!
  • 世界遺産! World Heritage Site!
