A Walk on the Second Shogun Hidetada Tokugawa

Hidetada Tokugawa, the Second Shogun of Edo Bakufu, is a son of Ieyasu Tokugawa, the Founder of the Bakufu. Hidetada went hawking to Togane Kazusa with his father, so he got on ship at Nihonbashi in Edo and passed the canals called Onakigawa and Shinkawa, then he landed on a ferry at Imai, he went through Gongenmichi, and finally he stayed at Fuanbashi Goten (the palace at Funabashi). In this page, two landmarks are specially introduced, Tokiwa Jinaja in Funabashi Daijingu and Kaigensan Tokuganji in Gyotoku are deeply related to him. Hidetada brought Ieyasu's anterior teeth and built this shrine to dedicate his father and the statue of Hidetada was also dedicated at the shrine by his son Iemitsu, the Third Shogun. And the principle image of Tokuganji is the Amida Nyorai carved by Unkei that Masako Hojo ordered him to carve. The sculpture was donated by Hidetada after his wife Oeyo had passed away, it was Oeyo's sculpture and it was given by Ieyasu. Tokiwa Jinja and Tokuganji are the wonderful spots that tell his thoughts for his father and his wife. They are the good spots for visitors to study culture, history of Funabashi and the relationship between Tokugawa Family and the city. Why don't you visit them?
