Kodai-ji Temple -高台寺-

530 shimogawara-cho Kodai-ji, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto

Kitanomandokoro Nene, who was the wife of Hideyoshi Toyotomi (1537-1598) who unified Japan at the Warring State Period, opened Kodai-ji temple for enshrining Hideyoshi after he died. It’s 400 years ago. And she ordered to move the Kesho-palace and the front yard of Fushimi-castle into Kodai-ji temple site, because she had many memories in Fushimi-castle with Hideyoshi, and she lived there. A lot of people, Japanese feudal lords, monks, tea masters, poets, painters, ceramicists and etc…, came to the place for meeting her. She spent for 19 years in the place until she died when she was 76years old.
Iesada Kinoshita who was an older brother of Nene and Toshifusa who was a son of Iesada supported Nene. Toshifusa opened Entoku-in for a memorial service for the Kinoshita family in the place where Nene lived after she died. It became one of minor temples with Kodai-ji temple.

Entoku-in has two dry landscape garden (south garden and north garden).
The north garden, there are a lot of rocks. This garden was brought from Fushimi castle. It is a famous garden in the Momoyama Period.
