The glory of the first shogun Apr 29, 2013
This shrine is dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun of the Edo Shogunate. Ieyasu had unified the nation and founded the Tokugawa shogunate government in Tokyo. Ieyasu wanted to bury himself in Kuno mountain. After his death, this shrine was build in 1617. Ieyasu's corpse was moved to Nikko after the first anniversary of his death. Ieyasu enjoyed both power and fortune, but this shrine was smaller than I expected. We went there by Nihondaira ropeway, but you can go up there by climbing 1,100 stone steps. A hall of worship is very vivid. From the ropeway, I could see a calm Pacific and vinyl houses of a strawberry.
