You will find the Okunoin (Inner House) after
you passed through the Koukamon Gate and went stone upstairs.
There will be Copper Treasure Warehouse on the left of the Okunoin.
Koukamon Gate never opens to anyone because the Okunoin is located
inside the gate. Even priests can rarely enter.
Okunoin is the tomb of the third successive Shogun Iemitsu, and
is the most majestic area in Taiyuin Mausoleum.
Okunoin consists of Haiden oratory, Inukimon Gate and Hoto Treasure
Tower. Frontage of the Okunoin Haiden is 9m wide, 5.4m deep, and

Round pillars surround the Treasure Tower. It is copper-made and
4m high. Image of Shaka Nyorai and memorial tablet are put inside
the tower. Dead body of Iemitsu has been enshrined under the tower
