Special Exhibition "Ise Jingu and Treasures of Shinto"
This event has ended.
Starting with the sacred treasures of Ise shrine, both ancient and later, this exhibition will display around 100 treasures connected to the shrine or donated to Ise by emperors and shoguns. While taking a journey back through the history and religion of Ise, this exhibition also looks closely at the ceremonial system of Shikinen Sengu, a system whereby the temple is reconstructed every 20 years according to ancient, traditional ways. The exhibition also looks at how Japanese architectural beauty and construction skills have been transmitted through this system. Throughout the ages, Shinto has fostered and developed history and tradition. This exhibition shines a light on Shinto art and introduces the flowers of Japanese traditional religious art.
