The building constitutes as two Shrines, it support 20 populations and attracts up to eight hunting or herding animals. The Toshogu Shrine also increases the gather rates of all Shrines.

Strategy Edit

Players should build the Toshogu Shrine while advancing to the Fortress Age, with the Colonial Age Wonder being the Torii Gates, Industrial Age Wonder being the Shogunate and Imperial Age Wonder being the Golden Pavilion. Depending on the tactic, this order of build may differ, however, it is still useful to have the Shrine early in the game. The amount of Export the Toshogu Shrine delivers varies according to the Age it advances towards. The Toshogu Shrine is a invaluable economic asset as it boost the production of other Shrines and acts as a Shrine itself.
