Only slightly more subtle that it's neighbor, Toshogu, this is a beautiful shrine with lots of color, intricate carving and interesting architecture. It is built up the side of a mountain, so you always seem to be moving toward the sky. Less crowded than Toshogu, especially the day I was there, so a better experience for me. Like Toshogu, however, there is renovation under way. It's being done in stages, so there is still plenty to see.
