Kodai-ji Temple is located at the foot of Higashiyama Ryozen Mountains in Kyoto. The temple was built in 1606 by Kita-no-Mandokoro, also known as Nene, in memory of her late husband Toyotomi Hideyoshi, samurai and daimyƍ of the late Sengoku period regarded as the second “Great Unifier” of Japan. Nene later became a priestess and assumed the name of Kodaiin Kogetsuni. Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Kita-no-Mandokoro are enshrined in “Otama-ya” and their graves lie under the temple’s grounds.
