The Willow Room is named for the painting of the “Willows in four seasons” by Yamamoto Tansai, but it is the tragic event that has made this room so well known. Toyotomi Hidetsugu, a nephew of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and a high ranking military official, ended his life by committing ritual suicide in this room on July 15th, 1595.
