This is the place where you can tell us your thoughts and feelings about displays, exhibitions or anything else related to Tokyo National Museum. We are looking forward to your participation!

Which of the Divine Generals would you choose as your guardian deity? Please select one from among the Twelve Divine Generals from Joruriji temple, Kyoto.

These Twelve Divine Generals (Important Cultural Properties) are exhibited at the special exhibition, Unkei: The Great Master of Buddhist Sculpture (September 26–November 26, 2017). You may have your own personal impressions of them – some of the statues might resemble people you know; you may feel a connection with the general whose zodiac sign is the same as yours; or you may like a specific general for no particular reason. From among the Twelve Divine Generals, which are now in the collection of the Seikado Bunko Art Museum, Tokyo, and the Tokyo National Museum, which would you choose?
