About Ueno Toshogu

It is famous for healthy longevity, success, success, victory, happiness and good luck prayers.

With the will of Tokugawa Ieyasu, Tenkai Zosho and Todo Takatora were built in 1627. The Tokugawa Iemitsu was rebuilt into the present building in 1651.

The deities are Ieyasu Tokugawa, Yoshimune Tokugawa, and Tokugawa Yoshinobu. The shrine is golden and gorgeous.

The shrine, Sukibei, Karamon, torii, bronze lanterns, etc. are valuable national designated important cultural properties that convey the Edo architectural style without collapsing even in the war or earthquake.

Rising dragons and falling dragons carved on pillars of the Karamon are works of Hidari Jingoro who carved “sleeping cats” of Nikko Toshogu. There is a legend that when it comes to the night, you get out of the pillars and go drinking the water of the Shinobazu pond.

The 200 stone lamps are also a masterpiece.

We hold winter peony festival from New Year’s Day to the end of February. The winter peony, which has been regarded as a flower to celebrate the New Year since ancient times, blooms pretty in the fence.
