The "Zen Temple Traditions II: Women and Buddhism" is being held at the Shokokuji Jotenkaku Art Museum until July 16, 2023 (Sun.).
In commemoration of the 800th anniversary of the birth of Mugei Nyodai Nun (1223-1298), a nun who succeeded to the Dharma of Muhaku Sogen, the exhibition features items related to ordained princesses such as Teruzan Motoyo Nun, Tokuigan Riho Nun, and Itsuigan Rishu Nun.
