Overview

Special Exhibition at the hundredth anniversary of Shirasu Masako’s Birth

This exhibition was organized to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the birth of essayist Shirasu Masako by showing a selection of ancient works of art that she loved. In books like Kakurezato (Hidden Village), Juichimen Kannon Junrei (Eleven-Headed Kannon Pilgrimage), Omi sanga sho (Notes on the Mountains and Rivers of Omi), and Myoe Shonin (Priest Myoe), she described many images of Shinto and Buddhist deities, screens, scroll paintings, and craft objects (including National Cultural Treasures and Important Cultural Properties). This exhibition brings together many of these objects from the temples and shrines that she visited, revealing the beautiful world that she sought throughout her life. We hope that you will enjoy traveling to the heartland of the Japanese soul and seeing it through the eyes of Shirasu Masako.
