Travel Guide - Nikko Toshogu Shrine

InformationInformation

Toshogu is one of numerous shrines that enshrine Tokugawa Ieyasu, first Shogun of the Edo Shogunate. It was completed in its present splendor in 1636 by the second Shogun, Tokugawa Hidetada, for dedication to the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate. The structure is representative of Toshogu style, with a dazzling multicolored gate decorated with 508 sculptures. Its Yomei-mon Gate, the gate to the main shrine building of Toshogu, reflects Shogun’s wish for Japanese peace. Most of the shrine buildings and many parts are designated as National Treasures or Important Cultural Properties.
