    Matsudaira Toshogu Shrine

    • \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

    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 Matsudaira-Go Hall, which features various items tied to the Matsudaira and Tokugawa clans. There you will also find the well whose water was used to bathe newborn babies of the Matsudaira clan, including Tokugawa Ieyasu. The sacred water is believed to confer benefits like longevity and safe birth, and is given to visitors as well. Matsudaira Toshogu Shrine holds a range of festivals and is thronged with people year-round.
