... most of the crowd there. Waterfalls trickled down the hillsides and green moss covered giant stone lanterns lining the paths to the shrines. Over a dozen buildings make up the complex, and unlike most shrines (Shrines hold the deified spirits of the dead-not the bodies) in Japan, these are elaborately carved and painted or covered in gold leaf. It's absolutely breathtaking when combined with the natural beauty of the place. There was so much to ...

Tokugawa and many of his sons are buried at the Toshogu Shrine, one of the most ...

During the day there were other people around but at night there ...

... then into the park with all the temples and shrines. We decided on two: Toshogu shrine and Rinnoji temple. First we went to Rinnoji, which is under construction. This was a little disappointing at first, but revealed itself as a great way to see how they restore these buildings. It was really quite remarkable, but they wouldn't let me take any photos. We climbed up to the 7th floor of the construction building to see everything from above, and got beautiful views of ...
