The Sorin tower of Rinnoji Temple in Nikko was located at Futarasan Shrine together with the Sanbutsudo, but it was moved in 1875, and the Sanbutsudo in 1881, to Rinnoji in accordance with the Buddhism and Shintoism separation order. The Sorin tower is a memorial tower with many scriptures stored in it, construction initiated by Shogun Iemitsu. This is a picture taken from the side of Gohotendo. To the left is a scaffold, and in front lumber is piled up, showing that restoration is taking place.
