Toyokuni Shrine is located in Higashiyama, Kyoto. It enshrines Toyotomi Hideyoshi. In 1598, Toyotomi Hideyoshi died and buried at Mt. Amidagamine. To protect his grave, this shrine was built as the mausoleum. Hideyoshi was entitled "Sho-ichii," the highest class of Japanese nobility by Emperor Goyozei. He became one of Japanese gods, and named "Houkoku Daimyojin."
However, after the fall of Toyotomi clan, this temple was abandoned in Edo period.
In 1880, Toyokuni Shrine was re-established at the ruins of Hokoji Daibutsuden that is the current location.
This gate was originally located in Fushimi Castle. Later, it was removed to Nijo castle, Nanzenji temple, then removed to Toyokuni Shrine. There are two toro in front of the gate. They were donated by Daimyo of Toyotomi Hideyoshi.
