Japan Guide Travel – What To Do In Japan Trip – Nikko Toshogu Shrine highlights mentioned in this video.


SHINTO VS BUDDHIST TEMPLES The temple complex actually has temples from different eastern religions.

We walked into one temple that was a Buddist temple, and the Shinto Priest explained the protocol for entering a Shinto temple.

And then as we left that temple and entered the Buddhist Temple, the Buddhist Monk “un”-explained the previous temple’s rules and explained the protocol for entering a Buddhist Temple.
