Visitors reach these steps after passing under the famous "Nemurineko" (sleeping cat) carving in the east corridor of the main hall at Nikko Toshogu and going through Sakashita Gate. At the top the stairs is the "Okusha" (inner shrine) containing the tomb of Tokugawa Ieyasu. Each step is made from a solid slab of stone. The Okusha is visible in the upper part of the photograph.
