Yup, well Ooku was a fascinating place. No man except the Shogun was allowed inside and the door to the inner palace was always locked even the guards to the palace were women.
This is based on a manga by author Yoshinaga Fumi, Iemitsu is based on vol. 2-3 and a movie was made of volume 1 a few years back and a nother one will come out in december with Sakai Masato and Kanno Miho about Shogun Tsunayoshi often referred as the dog shogun .
Arikoto really existed, of course the real Arikoto was a woman, a Buddhist nun at Keiko-in who entered the Ooku after Lady Kasuga spotted her (after Kasuga's death she took over that position)
