The original Yogen-in Temple was built by Hideyoshi Toyotomi's concubine Yodogimi to honor her father. After the temple was destroyed by a fire, it was rebuilt in 1621, with the wooden floorboards of Fushimi Castle in Southern Kyoto used for the ceiling here. These tiles still retain the blood stains and body outlines of soldiers who committed seppuku in the Castle in 1600.
