Nijo Castle

Nijo Castle built in 1603 in Kyoto by the first Tokugawa shogun Ieyasu is a sublime walk into the aesthetic world of the long-reigning Tokugawas in the artistic tradition of the Kano school, the sliding-door and wall paintings of tigers and towering pines in the great hall contrasting the shoguns’ power with the soothing elegance of their living quarters.
