Travel Guide - Shigetsu-den

InformationInformation

Shigetsu-den is a library built for dedication and storage of Buddhist sutras by Hojo Masako, the mother of the assassinated Shogun Minamoto-no-Yoriie. It was built in prayer for the repose of her son's soul. The statue of Jyoroku Shakamumi enshrined here is a very rare Zen sect type. It is also the oldest wooden structure in the Izu area.
The grave of Minamoto-no-Yoriie is located in the Shigetsu-den compound. Rising to power as the second Shogun of the Kamakura Shogunate, he demonstrated outstanding intelligence from childhood. However, it was this intelligence that invited discord with the Hojo clan. He was imprisoned in Shuzenji and was assassinated when he was only 23.
