Toshougu Shrine, Nikko, Japan

Nikko is the location of the Toshogu Shrine

It might be the most garish shrine in Japan

Tokugawa Ieyasu was deified after his death

He was the Shogun in "Shogun"

This is in the rock garden around his tomb

The detail is dizzying

Don't I look dizzy?

It just goes on and on

And there is gold everywhere.
