This is the tomb of the 7th Shogun Tokugawa Ietsugu in the inner shrine at Yushoin Mausoleum. The Tokugawa tombs are made of various materials. The tomb of the 2nd Shogun Hidetada was made of wood, then bronze was used for that of the 4th Shogun Ietsuna. This was continued up to the 6th Shogun Ienobu, then changed to stone for the 7th Shogun Ietsugu and subsequent generations up to the 14th Shogun Iemochi.
