Innovative Fusumae (a painting on a sliding door) of "Shoren-in Monzeki"

A colorful lotus flower that blooms from the green leaves.

Where can we see such modern art?

The answer is from "the temple".

The fusumae which is seen at the temple in Higashiyama, "Shoren-in Monzeki", was painted by an artist, Mr. Hideki Kimura to express the world of Amida(or Sukhavati Sutra).

The harmony between the old buildings of the temple and the green world is really wonderful.

You realize, without knowing, several minutes have passed when looking at the Fusumae.... at this temple and its Fusumae it is possible to lose track of time.
