Hideyoshi Toyotomi's widow took vows as a nun and went to live at Kodai-ji Temple established in 1605(thanks to Ieyasu support). The sacred Kannon is accompanied by symbolic images of Kita no Mondokoro and her husband Hideyoshi. The sanctuary's altar is made of lacquer. Other features are two teahouses, one with its distinctive umbrella-shaped roof believed to have come from the castle at Fushimi. The legacy of Mitsunobu Tosa is represented with his 36 Immortal Poets and Pines at the Beach.
