1 day

Matsudaira Toshogu Shrine is a shrine that deifies Tokugawa Ieyasu and Matsudaira Chikauji, the founder of the Matsudaira clan. Family heirlooms belonging to the Matsudaira clan are displayed in the Matsudaira-go Museum, and there is also a heritage walking route running through the Matsudaira-go township which includes many remnants of the Matsudaira clan, such as the birthing well used by the Matsudaira clan during childbirth. Why not go for a walk throughout the town and take in the seasonal views?
Stay overnight in Shimoyama, before moving on to Mikawa Lake for the next day. After floating along the lake in a rental boat, or going for a spot of lure fishing, you can enjoy a range of nature-based activities at the Mikawa Highlands, such as camping, tennis and golf.

Matsudaira Toshogu Shrine consecrates Chikauji Matsudaira, the ancestral patriarch of the Matsudaira clan, to which shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu traced his roots. The shrine grounds were once the villa of Matsudaira. Immediately adjacent to the worship hall is the Matsudairago Hall, which features various items tied to the Matsudaira and Tokugawa clans. There you will also find the well at which Matsudaira was first bathed. It is held to confer benefits like longevity and safe birth and is held as sacred water for visitors.
