World Heritage Site Shrines and Temples of Nikkō | Nikkō, Tochigi Japan

Nikko Toshogu Shrine, Rinnoji Temple, and Nikko Futarasan Shrine in Nikko City, Tochigi Prefecture Japan, have been registered as UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites as Shrines and Temples of Nikkō.
Nikko Toshogu, one of the shrines and temples of Nikko, is a shrine dedicated to Tosho Daigongen, who deified Ieyasu Tokugawa, the first shogun of the Edo Shogunate.
After the death of Ieyasu Tokugawa, the body was buried in Kunozan in Sunpu (now Shizuoka City, Shizuoka Prefecture Japan).
After the first anniversary of Ieyasu Tokugawa’s death, he was reburied at Toshosha in Nikko according to his will, and was given the Shinto god of Tosho Daigongen on February 21, 3rd year of Genwa.
At that time, it was enshrined by syncretistic fusion of Shintoism and Buddhism rituals, but due to the separation of Shinto and Buddhism in the Meiji era, Nikko became the form of two shrines and one temple divided into the present Nikko Toshogu, Futarasan Shrine, and Rinnoji.
