- Japanese: 泉涌寺 (Sennyuuji)
It was the site, too, of the funerals of Emperor Kômei (d. 1867) and his wife, Empress Eishô (d. 1897). Kômei's was the last imperial funeral to be performed by Buddhist priests. That of Eishô was performed in an almost entirely Shinto manner, expunged of Buddhist elements excepting for it taking place at a Buddhist temple, which no later Imperial funerals have.
