This was lit up at night so the atmosphere was energetic yet mysterious. Even my young son could feel something magical about it then after enjoy the free refreshments served at the entrance in a festival atmosphere. It was good comparing it to Toshogu.

Located in the same vicinity as Toshogu, Taiyuinbyo is the mausoleum of Tokugawa Iemitsu, who was the grandson of Ieyasu. Although the mausoleum complex resembles that of Toshogu in its layout and architecture, it was intentionally built somewhat more modest due to Iemitsu's deep respect...More

Taiyuimbyo Shrine is very beautiful not only the structures itself but also the environment. During our visit to Nikko by early Nov., momiji was in full color. Many visitors were seen taking photos on the surrounding area.

A great respite from the commotion that is Tokyo. Easy to get to via trains. The shrine itself is about a 30 minute walk from the station on a busy, uninteresting road so either figure out the bus schedule or hop a cab.
