Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Chubu / Tokai / Shizuoka Prefecture / Shizuoka / Kunozan Toshogu Shrine
Pay a visit to the historic, spiritual, and strikingly ornamental Kunozan Toshogu Shrine, a Shinto shrine located on a mountain. Particularly well known as the burial place of the first Shogun of the Tokugawa Shogunate--the last feudal Japanese military government--the shrine was founded in 1617. The main hall and area for offerings represent two of the most notable structures of the shrine, designated National Important Cultural Properties by the Japanese government. They feature ornate wood carvings, painted patterns over black lacquer, and gold leaf showing the colorful and vibrant style of the late Momoyama period.

Kunozan Toshogu Shrine reviews
Climb uneven stone steps to the coloured shrine. Then keep climbing up up up to the tomb at the very top. A peaceful resting place and worth over 200 big steps. Nice bronze & stone lanterns & pillars.... more »

It’s beautiful historical building. I liked a trail to the top of the mountain to visit shrine.
Very good shrine with a long history. The stairs leading to the shrine gives an added adventure to reach the shrine from below. One can get to Nihondira zoo by car and take the ropeway to reach the shrine also. The view of the ocean from this place is also very good. The entry fees to the shrine is 1500¥ for adults.
