It's a very pretty shrine with very nice view over the city but you need to walk and climb up hundreds of steps before reaching the top. So please ensure you have at least 40 minutes.

Kishu Toshogu is a great shrine. It enshrines Tokugawa Ieyasu, who was the founder and first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan. This shrine containes very beautiful and complicated sculpture and very gorgeous. Also, it is covered by sacread forest.
