[Welcome to Nikko] [Ieyasu's Toshogu] [Credits]

The toriíi are the official sign that you have entered the Toshogu at Nikko.

These grantile pillars are found in some form at every Shinto shrine.  However, as you will soon see, this site represents a syncretic fusion between Buddhism and Shintoism, for it contains important elements of each.
