Tottori Toshogu Shrine
This shrine was originally built in 1650, when Ikeda Mitsunaka, the Lord of the Tottori Domain, asked the Shogunate for permission to divide the deity honored at Nikko Toshogu to worship him in Tottori. The shrine used to be called Inaba Toshogu, but was renamed as Ouchidani Shrine in 1874. Later the shrine changed its name again in 2012, and is now called Tottori Taishogu.
