About

As a comprehensive Buddhist museum, the Ryukoku Museum aims to introduce Buddhism with a wide perspective from the roots of Buddhism in India, to the development of Buddhism in Japan. Among all of these, the most important themes are related to Gautama Buddha (Shakyamuni), who gave birth to Buddhism and priest Shinran, the originator of Shin Buddhism.
“Shakyamuni and Shinran” is an exhibit that commemorates the opening of the Ryukoku Museum as well as the 750th anniversary of the death of priest Shinran. This exhibit will trace the roots of Buddhism and provide an opportunity to experience and come into contact with the footsteps of Gautama Buddha and priest Shinran. The exhibit will introduce Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhsim, and priest Shinran, the originator of Shin Buddhism from the 3 perspectives of “Butsu” (life and footprints), “Hou” (teachings), and “Sou” (religious community and later developments).
