Kyoto National Museum in Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto, opened a special exhibition, "Masterpieces of Kosan-ji Temple" on October 7. A complete set of the picture scrolls vividly depicting humorous animals is being publicly presented for the first time in 33 years.
An exhibition titled "Blooming Chrysanthemums and Fluttering Fans - Enjoying Fall in the Kuroshoin" has started at the "Nijo Castle 400th Anniversary Gallery" in Nijo Castle, a World Heritage Site in Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto, to display the wall and sliding door paintings of the Kuroshoin in Ninomaru Palace.
"Seiryu-den," or a grand hall for burning holy sticks of invocation, has been completed and was lit up on October 3. Shoren-in Temple of Higashiyama Ward built it in the Shogunzuka Dainichi-do temple's garden, an enclave of the temple, in Yamashina Ward, Kyoto. The palace-style wooden building emerged fantastically atop Mt. Higashiyama, which commands a panoramic night view of the city center.
