I did not visit the Peony Garden just the main temple and the gold details of the gate and the temple are spectacular. It is not a very big temple, but the details will make you stop and look.

Built in 1616 this one of many shrines dedicated to the shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. It can be accessed when you go to Ueno Park. Take a peek up at the ceilings for some magnificent dragons

We were only able to view this Ueno Park shrine from the outside on a rainy, rainy day. Still the path with the many stone lanterns was impressive. There was also had a good view of the Kan-ei-ji Pagoda from the pathway.
