Nikko | See no Evil, Speak no Evil, Hear no Evil

Nikko Toshogu is dedicated to Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shougunate, completed by Iemitsu, the third Tokugawa shogun, in 1636.

A panes above the stable for the sacred horse bears the caving of three monkeys referred to as "See no Evil, Speak no Evil, Hear no Evil" as one each is covering his eyes, mouth and ears. The Japanese have a saying; Don't say Kekko (wonderful) without seeing Nikko. This saying derives from the location of Toshogu shrine, Nikko.
