Rinnoji Temple / Nikko / Tokyo & Kanto Area

Rinnoji is Nikko's most important temple. It was founded by Shodo Shonin, the Buddhist monk who introduced Buddhism to Nikko in the 8th century.
The temple's main building, the Sanbutsudo, houses large, gold lacquered, wooden statues of Amida, Senju-Kannon ("Kannon with a thousand arms") and Bato-Kannon ("Kannon with a horse head"). The three deities are regarded as Buddhist manifestations of Nikko's three mountain kami ("Shinto gods") enshrined at Futarasan Shrine.

Opposite Sanbutsudo stands the temple's treasure house with Buddhist and Tokugawa related exhibits. Shoyoen, a small Japanese style garden, is located next to the treasure house.

To view the interior of the Sanbutsudo, it is recommended to purchase a combination ticket which also includes admission to the Toshogu, Taiyuinbyo and Futarasan Shrine. However, a separate admission fee applies to Rinnoji's treasure house and Shoyoen. See details below.

How to get there

Rinnoji stands just a few steps east of Toshogu, a 30-40 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride (300 yen one way, 500 yen day pass, covered by the free passes) from Tobu and JR Nikko Stations.
