This is a smaller version of the shrine in Nikko. It was built first and was the original shrine/temple for TOKUGAWA Ieyasu. It is very similar to Nikko but on a slightly smaller scale though I think the setting is more dramatic overlooking the Pacific. Very easy to get there by bus from Shizuoka station. It is a 35 minute drive thru scenic forested valleys. Then you take a gondola over beautiful valleys to the shrine. Wear comfortable shoes cause you will walk a lot up stairs to the shrine. There is a small museum which is nice and can be be seen in about 10-15 minutes.
