Ekingura絵金蔵

Art Museum

This art museum is located in Akaoka-cho, Konan City. It stores the folding screen paintings by the late Edo to early Meiji period painter Ekin (Hirose Kinzo) that are displayed at the Suruda Hachimangu Jinsai festival held on July 14 and 15 each year. One exhibit allows visitors to view the folding screen paintings in the same dark setting as the night of the festival. Another allows visitors to view the paintings through a literal hole in the wall. The museum regularly rotates the paintings that are on display. It also features exhibits about the life of Ekin.

Very nice piece of arts can be seen here. Once our guide explained who was Ekin it was really amazing to hear all that he has done and the extreme problems he went through. All the painting reflected...

かつて狩野派の絵師だった絵金が、この地で抱えられ、数々の作品を残した経歴が良くわかります。
質問にも心より答えてもらえます。
Reviewed:2018/07/24 絵金祭の絵金蔵
念願だった絵金祭に行ってきました。夜なので絵金蔵は閉まっているかな?と思いきや、「特別夜間公開」がありました。勿論、本物は町に飾られているのですが、覗き穴には、1点、本物がありました。
「白描展」があり、泥絵とはまた違った絵金の良さがありました。

          The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
