Tokugawa Ieyasu is enshrined here in Ueno Park as well as in Nikkō; why is it that anything to do with Tokugawa Ieyasu is so over the top? Too much gold and glimmer, not very tasteful and it reeks of a personality cult, if you ask me.
I know that it is a popular tourist attraction, but I confess, Nikkō didn’t do much for me. I had high hopes and was really looking forward to it, but it was just so very kitsch….
