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.
