The Kodaiji is located northeast of the Yasaka Hokanji Temple at the foot of the Higashiyama Ryozen Mountains in Kyoto. The official name of the temple is Kodaiji-Jushozenji Temple. In 1606, the temple of Kita-no-Mandokoro was dedicated in memory of her late husband. Kita-no-Mandokoro was also known as nene. The Kaisando (Founder's Hall), Otama-ya (Sanctuary), Kasatei (Tea House), Shiguretei (Tea House), Omotetmon (Gate to the Sanctuary), and Kangetsudai (Moon Viewing Pavilion) are designated as important cultural assets in Japan.
The temple garden is said to have been designed by the landscape gardener Kobori Enshu (1579-1647). The Japanese government has designated the garden as a historic site and a place of scenic beauty.
The interior of the main building was originally painted with lacquer and covered with exquisite gold decorations. However, the current building was rebuilt in 1912 after several fires. Kodai-ji hosts modern art exhibitions in spring and fall. These are set up in the rock garden in front of Houjyo and are creatively illuminated at night.

일찍이 "네네"라고 불린 이 걸출한 여인은 위대한 천하의 장군이며 남편이었던 도요토미 히데요시의 사후 명복을 기원하기 위해 1606년 이 사찰을 건립했고, 후에 출가해 고다이인 코게츠니라고 자칭했으며,1624년 고다이인에서 서거할때 켄닌지의 산코오쇼가 주지스님이 되어 코다이지로 개명되었다. 이 사원자체가 정말 아름다웠지만, 내 마음을 사로잡은 것은 그 광장한 경내였다. 산책이나 인간관찰과 사진을 찍기에는 좋은 곳이다. 언덕 위에 펼쳐진 대나무 숲과 경내 중앙의 연못 또한 멋지다.
교토 히가시야마 산기슭에 있는 고다이지는 전국시대의 웅걸 도요토미 히데요시의 보제를 애도 하기위해 부인 네네가 건립했다. 개창은 히데요시가 죽은 후 1606년(게이쵸 11)이며, 경사면을 이용하여 세련된 기교로 공간 구성이 설계되어, 여러면에서 표정을 바꾸는 훌륭한 정원이 경내지에 펼처진다. 완만한 커브를 그리는 오솔길을 걸어서 다실·이호안을 지나면 연못을 둘러싼 상쾌한 경치, 거기서 언덕을 올라가면 시선이 높아지면서 경관이 바뀐다. 언덕 위에는 토방으로 이어진 특이한 두 개의 다실, 가사테이가 있고, 다실 안쪽에서 대나무 숲을 빠져 내려가면 또 다른 다실 운고안이 있다.
