  • Nice to come across. Very peaceful in the city!
  • This temple is located at the onimon of the Edo Castle Honmaru, and it is also the grave of the painter Toriyama Ishima. Even if i say this name vaguely, there might be a lot of people who do not know. In the Edo period, he studied painting in the Kano school and worked on "Hundred Demon Nights of Drawings.". It seems that "Hyakuki Noyuki Emaki" was drawn during the Muromachi period, and it seems that it is depicted as a strange existence, but the youkai paintings of the Edo period seem to have been used to criticize politics and sarcastic the world. Toriyama Ishiya became a popular painter with the success of the drawing Hyakuki Nocturne, and it seems that he drew "Hundred Demons" and "Hundred Kizu-no-Bukuro" in the sequel called "Hundred Demons Now and Now", but the Kano school he learned was a painter of the Shogunate, so he often made the subject matter, He must be familiar with the classics, and Toriyama Ishima drew a hundred demon sores by mixing the late Japanese and Chinese things, culture, and history. There seems to be a youkai that appears in "Gegege no Kitaro" by Shigeru Mizuki from this person's work, too.
