Ueno Toshogu: Main Entrance

This shrine is one of many in Japan dedicated to founder of the Tokugawa bakufu, Ieyasu. Miraculously, the shrine is an original structure despite the natural disasters and civils wars that it had to survive. The original was built by Tokugawa vassal and daimyo of Iga/Ise, Todo Takatora.

 

Ueno Park. Ueno, Tokyo.
