Slide to Digital – Tribute to a Shogun

Nikko, which means “sunlight” in Japanese, was founded in the 8th century by the Buddhist priest Shodo and is an extant showcase of the wealth and power of the Tokugawa clan. Nikko is famous for Toshogu, the mausoleum of the Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, and an outstanding cultural legacy of Japan’s Edo era. Image circa 1985.
