About

 
The vast complex of Sennyū-ji in Kyoto’s Eastern Hills was founded eight centuries ago by the priest Shunjō (1166–1227). Its name, literally “temple of the bubbling spring,” derives from the fresh spring water source within the temple precincts. While Sennyū-ji has long attracted worshipers from all parts of Japanese society, it has especially deep connections with Japan’s imperial family, as evidenced by the nickname Mi-dera, or “Imperial Temple.” This exhibition highlights calligraphy, painting, sculpture, and other objects from Sennyū-ji that exemplify its long and distinguished history.
