4.6 5 Reviews

Arguably one of the most important religious sites in Japan, the Nikko Toshogu Shrine sits in the forests of Tochigi Prefecture. The shrine houses the spirit of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the samurai leader who united Japan in the early 1600s and became the first ruler of the eponymous Tokugawa Shogunate.
