  • 東照宮位於上野公園最深處,東照宮外表看起來像有貼著金箔,進東照宮前,旁邊有收費的花園可逛,但考量行程時間,也就沒有進去參觀,東照宮在販售御守及赤朱印旁有著參觀東照宮的入口,只是入內要參觀是要收費的,對於趕時間的我們,參觀神社外,就已感到壯觀,非常推薦可以慢慢地到此一遊 
  • Located inside the Ueno Park this is one of a number of temples and shrines worthy of a visit and this is probably one of the best. 
  • This shrine is stunning and a visit should be a must on anyone's agenda. It easily reached from Ueno Station and is easily located in Ueno park. There are a couple of things that shouldn't be missed -...  more »

  • A small shrine to take a break from museums and zoo. Just to chill out for few minutes. Access to the inner garden is 500yen, but there is noaccess to inner shrine so you can basically skip that visit. Nice place to run away from crowd in the park.
  • Breathtakingly beautiful shrine to see. Built in 1651, this shrine is dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate. You can also see "the Flame of Hiroshima and Nagasaki" by the shrine and there are also many copper lanterns as well!
  • Beautiful golden shrine with a great venue.
  • Feel the power of History. never miss it.
  • Small but beautiful Shrine in a park like Ueno!
