Highlights

Painted Scrolls at Sekisui-in (Choju-Jinbutsu-giga)

Often regarded as the ‘First Manga', these painted scrolls are called the “Scrolls of Frolicking Animals”. Drawn sometime during the 12th century, the identity of the artist is unknown but speculated to be the monk Toba Sojo. The painted scrolls depict a satirical story mocking the daily lives of priests, likening them to animals. The original scrolls are displayed at the Tokyo National Museum, but you can view a replica at the Sekisui-in hall at Kozanji.

Sekisui-in Hall

The last remaining original structure in Kozanji, Sekisui-in was rightfully designated as a 'National Treasure'. It is one of the last remaining Kamakura-period buildings in all of Japan, most of them having perished to fires or other forms of man-made destruction over the years. Sekisui-in used to serve as a residence for an imperial family member who moved to the temple. In autumn, visitors flock to Kozanji to experience the million-dollar view from within Sekisui-in.
