Nikko Toshogu Shrine

Nikko Toshogu Shrine

Nikko Toshogu Shrine enshrines Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun of the Edo Shogunate. Toshogu was enlarged into its current state (the lap of luxury!!) by the 3rd Shogun, Tokugawa Iemitsu, grandson of Ieyasu. Toshogu is famous for its brightly colored elaborate carvings and the famous Yomeimon gate which has over 500 engravings which taken all together, form the symbol of the shrine. Do not miss 3 of Toshogu's most famous carvings, namely, the 3 monkeys posing the “see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil”, the Sleeping Cat and Imagined elephants.

* The Yomeimon Gate is currently undergoing renovation work, which is scheduled to be completed by March 2019
