This exhibition introduces the history of Tendai Buddhism, beginning with its founding at Enryakuji Temple and ending with the founding of Kan'eiji Temple in Edo (now Tokyo) during a period in which the school held strong ties with the samurai government of the Edo period (1603–1868). The exhibition will showcase cultural works that bear unique traits from the regions in which they were treasured and passed down, and also present objects that reflect the spirit of the Lotus Sutra's radical tenet that all people can achieve salvation.
