Can you identify and/or translate the inscriptions on the vertical wooden beams in this
picture? Or provide some historical background?

A friend doing a semester of law school in Tokyo visited this
shogun cemetery (scroll down to the photos beginning at "A shogun cemetery")
. We were both struck by the beams*, which are seen throughout the cemetery. He reports that the inscriptions are the same across all of them.
Any insight is much appreciated.
