Hideyoshi and the Daisho-in

Honzon "Namikiri Fudo Myouo" is a Self - Defense Buddha of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a statue praying for maritime safety and victory in a war ship Takaramaru.

Hideyoshi ordered Ankokuji Ekei to build Daikei-do by asking to visit Itsukushima Shrine on March 18, 15, to recite a thousand years ago once a month, but died in Keicho 3 (598) Because it is incomplete, it extends to today.

It is called Senjokaku because 1000 tatami mats are laid.

Many warriors including the Heike clan and Hideyoshi often visit Itsukushima Shrine and visit Daisho-in often singing in the shrine and dedicating to Utasya, but the samurai has a singing song in the world of warring States It is what it is.

"Especially Hideyoshi likes the garden of our hospital where Goshimbutsu is worshiped, and on August 25, Tensho 18 th grandiose singing society is held.
In the old book, ""Daisho-in is Rinsen Kanga, cultivating the feelings of the hill, and there is a song of Waka during the visit to Toyotomi Kanbaki"", with 36 songs on it."

At this time, the song that Hideyoshi wrote

Kikishiyori Nagameniakane Itsukushima
Misebayatoomou Kumonouebito (Matsu)

It is. The garden which Hideyoshi liked and won the prize has left a shadow of the Momoyama period in one corner of the precincts and gives quiet peace of mind to the hearts of the visitors.
