Zojoji was founded in 1393 by Yuyo Sosho, the eighth patriarch of Jodo Buddhism. The temple premises are a showcase for perpetual history. Visitors are welcome to admire the imposing main gate, Sangedatsumon, and visit the graves of the Tokugawa family. The basement floor of the main hall, Daiden, has a new gallery of treasures including a model of the Taitoku-in Mausoleum for the second shogun, Tokugawa Hidetada.
