Tokugawa Ieyasu

 

Portrait of Ieyasu as painted by Sansetsu Kano.

         Tokugawa Ieyasu

          Tokugawa Ieyasu died at the ripe age of 75 on June 1, 1616. There is no doubt that he made radical changes to Japan in his lifetime. When he was born Japan was in political chaos with warlord and daimyos fighting each other when possible. In 1603, he unified the country after the battle of Seki-ga-hara and move the capital to Edo or present-day Tokyo. He was assigned as Seii-Taishogun or the Great Generalissimo.

       Before his death it is said that he proclaimed "Enshrine my dead body at Mt. Kuno for the first year after my death and then build a small shrine for me in Nikko, where I should be enshrined as a god. I will be the guardian of Japan". His wishes were followed and his body was enshrine in Nikko in what is now called the UNESCO Heritage Site called Toshogu. A shrine built in his honor can also be found in Ueno called the Ueno Toshogu.
