Kunozan Toshogu Shrine
Kunouzan Toshogu Shrine locates in Shizuoka City. The first Tokugawa shogun, Ieyasu, is enshrined here. Ieyasu spent his finals years here in current day Shizuoka. “Tosho-gu” points to any shrine that enshrines Ieyasu, and this is the first one out of the many in Japan. The shrine was designated as a National Treasure in 2010 for its outstanding Edo period style architecture. In the museum building, you can find over 2000 artifacts, such as weapons and everyday items, which were used by Ieyasu. You can access the shrine via ropeway or by going up a 1100 step staircase.
