Yushima Seido is a lushly green historic landmark locates near Ochanomizu station. Although it is called “Seido (temple)”, it is not a shrine or temple but Confucius Mausoleum. Confucius is the founder of Confucianism. And this is known as a birthplace of the modern education. This Mausoleum is originally located at Hayashi Razan’s house in Ueno (Shinobugaoka) but the 5th Shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi moved it to the present place in 1690 for promoting Confucianism. In 1797, the shogunate started to run Shoheizaka Gakumonjo (Shoheizaka school) in this place.
