On our first day in Kyoto, Kate and I went to a bunch of temples, including one that was showing a bunch of really cool paintings featuring Buddhist temple accessories come to life and chasing monsters around. They had a sort of demented whimsy to them, and you can get a little flavor of it from the background images in this poster:
Of course, neither of us can read a word of Japanese (well, that’s not quite true– I can spot the character for “temple” in the group at the upper left), so we have no idea what the artist’s name is, or anything at all about the show.
I’m sure that somebody out there knows something more, or can at least read this poster. So, can anybody with an art background or Japanese language skills help a blogger out, here?
