Museum in The Chiyoda area
Hanzomon Museum is a cultural facility that was built to display Buddhist artwork owned by Shinnyo-en to the general public. In the Exhibition space, located on the first floor of the basement, a Seated Mahāvairocana－believed to be the work of Unkei－as well as bas-relief depictions of the Buddha’s life from Gandhara are on permanent display. Other items on show from Shinnyo-en’s collection of Buddhist statues, paintings, and scriptures are regularly changed. On the second floor, there is a lounge area where visitors can browse through books or take a break, and a multipurpose room has been made available that can be used for different functions. On the third floor, there is a theater where visitors can enjoy watching films on Buddhist culture, and a hall designed for lectures has been built adjacent to it. We hope to offer a tranquil setting for our visitors to enjoy and learn about Buddha’s history and diverse culture while also finding the museum a place for relaxation.
