Find A Grave - Kodaiji Temple - Higashiyama Ward
Kodaiji Temple Memorial Site. This temple was specifically founded in 1605 by the widow of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who was the second of three great military leaders in the process to unify Japan from its period of warring feudal states, in order to give repose to his soul. It is one of several sites were Toyotomi's spirit is enshrined. Within are unique seated statues of Hideyoshi and his wife as well as other items celebrated for their decorative metal lacquer.
