Tsuki no wa no misasagi (月輪陵) is the name of a mausoleum in Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto used by successive generations of the Japanese Imperial Family.[1]

The tomb itself is situated in Sennyū-ji temple, which was the hereditary Buddhist temple or bodaiji of the Imperial family.[2]

Notable interments[edit]

Kamakura period[edit]

Edo period[edit]

The mausoleum of Emperor Go-Mizunoo at Tsukinowa no misasagi, Sennyū-ji, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto.

The Imperial Household Agency maintains Tsuki no wa no misasagi as the place of enshrinement and the venue for veneration of several Edo period emperors.

In addition, this is the official misasagi for Prince Masahito, posthumously named Yōkwōin daijō-tennō, who was the eldest son of Emperor Ōgimachi and the father of Emperor Go-Yōzei.[5]

Three other Edo Period emperors are also enshrined at Nochi no Tsukinowa no Higashiyama no misasagi ( 後月輪東山陵?).[4] The final resting places of two Empress Dowagers are also found in this Imperial tomb complex.
