Daijo-ji temple(Oukyodera temple) 問い合わせ番号:15839-2487-9422
更新日:

Daijo-ji Temple has a number of paintings including those on the sliding doors that were created

by a painter in the mid-Edo Period (1603–1868), and his disciples. The temple is also called

Okyodera Temple.

 

When Okyo was still not famous, the holy priest Mitsuzo, the chief priest of Daijo-ji Temple, saw

through his talent and helped with his fees for study. Okyo reportedly went to Edo (present-day

Tokyo) with the subsidy, went through the training and became the greatest artist of all. Later,

he visited Daijo-ji Temple five times and created many paintings on the sliding doors and scrolls

with his disciples as a return for Mitsuzo’s favor.

 

In 13 reception halls in Daijo-ji Temple, there are 165 screen paintings created by Okyo and his 12

disciples. All of them are nationally designated as Important Cultural Properties.

 

Placing the eleven faced Kannon statue (national Important Cultural Property) in an alter room as the

center, the screen paintings are solemnly placed in 13 rooms. The world of Buddha (Mandala) is

embodied in the space of the rooms.

 

Currently, as a project to preserve the paintings on the sliding doors, the screen paintings that are

Important Cultural Properties are going to be transferred to storage. In their place, the plan to create

and display accurate copies of the paintings is in progress.
