Matsudaira Toshogu Shrine
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 Matsudairagou 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. Matsudaira Toshogu Shrine holds a range of festivals and is thronged with people year-round.
