Ueno Toshogu, an Important Cultural Property of Japan, in connection with the Tokugawa's

Toshogu is any Shinto shrine in which Tokugawa Ieyasu is enshrined with the name Tosho Daigongen. Ieyasu was the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate (1603-1868). It is part of Shrines and Temples of Nikko UNESCO World Heritage site.
Ueno Toshogu was constructed in 1627 and remodeled in 1651 by the 3rd Shogun, Iemitsu Tokugawa and this is what you can see now at Ueno Toshogu. In spite of all the disasters it's been through, it's never been down and still given a touch of Edo Period. Seasonal flowers are seen each season and other events are held.
The main building has been restored to its former condition and under construction until a least December 31, 2013.
