Muryo-ji Temple無量寺


A special Rinzai Tofukuji Buddhist temple located in an urban area in Kushimoto Town, the southernmost point on the main Japanese island of Honshu. The temple was founded by the priest Kokan Shiren. One of the temple’s highlights is the many fusumae sliding screen paintings installed in the main temple building. These were originally created by the famous Edo period Maruyama School famous artist Maruyama Okyo and Nagasawa Rosetsu. With the ravages of time, these paintings were close to being lost, but precise digital recreations were able to be produced thanks to local supporters, and visitors can enjoy seeing what these paintings are supposed to look like in all their glory. Because of its connection to Rosetsu, the temple is also known as the “Rosetsu-ji.” The Kushimoto Okyo Rosetsu Art Museum, located on the temple’s grounds, displays 96 paintings dating from the Muromachi period to the Edo period by artists such as Nagasawa Rosetsu and Maruyama Okyo.
