Description of Exhibition

Toyotomi Hidetsugu (1568–1595) was born as the nephew of the military ruler Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and gradually rose to the position of kanpaku (chief adviser to the emperor). However, Hidetsugu grew apart from his powerful uncle over time and was eventually forced to commit suicide. Calamity also befell Hidetsugu’s wife and children: they were executed on the Sanjō Kawara riverbank in Kyoto along with all his other family members. Zuisen-ji Temple was built on their execution site to mourn the souls of Hidetsugu and his family. This exhibition commemorates Toyotomi Hidetsugu’s 430th memorial by showcasing artworks related to his family, which are still preserved at Zuisen-ji to this day.
