Area Map

The Tokugawa Mausoleum
The Tokugawa Mousoleum is located in the northward from the holiest site in Koyasan, the Danjo garan and enshrined the first shogun of the Edo government, Tokugawa Ieyasu and the second shogun Hidetada . It was founded by the third shogun Iemitsu with respect to the predecessors. Ieyasu and Hidetada are in rest in halls which are designated as important cultural properties. Those halls were built for square shape with 6m on the side, and one-story by using the traditional building technique called Ichiju-hokeitsukuri. With copper-covered roofs, minutely-carved sculptures and decorated metal fittings make the halls glamorous. Chinese style cusped gables are projected from their fronts, which expressed the absolute power of the Tokugawa family then. Their imposing structures and splendid beauty are well worth visiting.
