Iemitsu, the third Tokugawa Shogun, was not content with building the world’s most elaborately decorated shrine for his grandfather. He also build an elaborate mausoleum for himself, located a short distance away. This is the Taiyuinbyo, which also serves as a functioning Buddhist temple.
The outer gate of the Taiyuinbyo is another Thunder Gate,
guarded by the gods of Wind
From there a pathway (with no shops) leads to a middle gate with four impressive guardians.
Another path and flight of stairs leads to the inner gate, with its own guardians.
The view looking down the steps.
Here is the entrance of the actual temple building. As usual no photographs are allowed inside.
