Nikko’s shrine and the temple is a world heritage that represents Japan. The most famous of these, Nikko Toshogu Shrine, is the shrine where Ieyasu Tokugawa was enshrined, and most of the current shrines were rebuilt by Kanei 13th Shogun Iemitsu’s third-generation Shogun Iemitsu. On the grounds, there are 55 buildings including 8 national treasures and 34 important cultural properties, and their gorgeous beauty is a highlight. Buildings are decorated with lacquer and brilliant colors by master craftsmen from all over the country, and pillars are decorated with many sculptures.
As you pass through the stone torii gate, you will see the five-storied pagoda immediately on your left. This five-story pagoda, which is more than 30 meters high, was dedicated by Obama feudal lord Tadakatsu Sakai in 1650 but was burned down in 1815 due to lightning strikes. It was rebuilt in 1818.
There is a famous episode that the seismic structure used when reconstructed has been applied to the construction design of Tokyo Sky Tree.
Here is a sculpture of the famous “Three Monkeys”.
There is a lesson in all the monkey sculptures.
These three monkeys teach the lesson, “I give only good things when I’m innocent and susceptible to the surroundings. If I wear good things, I can make the right decisions and act on bad things.”
After seeing the three monkeys, head to the gorgeous Yomei Gate, which is just ahead. The Yomeimon can see from the Tang Dynasty Gate, which looks up to the Polar Star above it. And It is the strongest power spot.
The enormous number of sculptures can inadvertently catch your eye.
There are 508 sculptures at Yomeimon. The beauty of sculptures and architectural patterns that combine the best technologies of the Edo era not tired of looking all day, so it is also called the “Higurashi Gate”.
