Nestled next to the Taiyuinbyo Shrine, the Rinno-ji temple is supposed to be Nikko’s most important temple. Founded by Shodo Shonin in the 8th century, while pioneering Buddhism in Nikko, the Rinnoji temple is home to three deities’ statues, that are considered to be manifestations of Nikko’s mountains’ deities. Thus, you have here huge wooden statues, of the deities Amida, Senju-Kannon and Bato-Kannon, varnished with gold.

There are several Buddhist as well as Tokugawa related exhibitions happening at this attraction, almost any given time of the year, the hall where they take place is referred to as the treasure house. Then there is the Shoyoen, a small Japanese style garden, verdant with amber maple trees.
