A day of visiting many temples for a run of good fortune. A place where the first japan coin was made.

A shrine with over 2100 years of history, rebuilt in the 1500s by Ieyasu is well preserved. The outside walls of the temple has exquisite carvings. Lots of tigers featured since Ieyasu was born in the year, day and hour of the tiger. . There is a carving of 3 monkeys. The 3 monkeys carving of the Nikko Toshogu Shrine features See No Evil, Speak No Evil and Hear No Evil monkeys that were meant for kids. The Chichibu monkeys are for adults and it’s said that adults have fine morals if they Listen Well, Observe Carefully, and Talk to prevent fights.

Chichibu is famous for its hot springs close to Tokyo. If you have an opportunity to go to Chichibu, you should visit this shrine. Art lovers must be pleased to see the dragon sculptures. Hope every visitor feels something good from a spiritual perspective!
