Ofuri-no-kata (d. 1640)
- Died: 1640/8/21
- Other Names: 自証院 (Jishou-in)
- Japanese: お振の方 (Ofuri no kata)
Ofuri-no-kata was a concubine of Shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu.
Following Ofuri's death in 1640, she was given the posthumous Buddhist name Jishô-in. In 1652, Chiyohime had a mausoleum constructed to serve as the site of memorial services for her mother. Originally located within the temple Jishô-ji in Ichigaya (in Edo), the Jishô-in Mausoleum now stands in the Edo-Tokyo Open-Air Architectural Museum. It was built by the Kôra family, leading carpenters for the shogunate, who were also involved in the construction of Edo castle and Nikkô Tôshôgû.
The Jishô-in Mausoleum (Jishô-in Otama-ya) is one of the few early Edo period mausolea of this style to survive, and so is a valuable example of that style.
