Toshogu - Poem by Ahmad Shiddiqi

Ieyasu Tokugawa mausoleum
First shogun of seminal Edo Period
An awe-inspiring Shinto Shrine

Two story Youmei-mon Gate
The brilliantly colorful
Adorned with over 500 sculptures

The Daiyo River
The Kegon Falls
Shinkyo sacred bridge

Twilight Gate
Superb and splendor

5,000 ornate woodcarvongs
Nemuri Neko, Sleeping Cat
San Zaru, Three Monkeys
