The Scrolls of Frolicking Animals from A to Z!
Want to Know More? Introduction to the World of Frolicking Animals!
At the beginning of the Kamakura period (13th century), a Buddhist priest named Myoe restored Kosan-ji in the mountains of Kyoto. A set of handscrolls painted over 800 years ago was passed down at this tranquil mountain temple, and is now a National Treasure known as the Scrolls of Frolicking Animals. This VR focuses on the first of the four extant scrolls, and provides detailed and easy-to-follow explanations of the miraculous world of animals unfolding vividly with the flow of the scroll.
