Who is Ekin?

In the 1800s, He worked as an official painter of Tosa aristocracy. (Kochi used to be called Tosa in the Edo era.)
However, trouble found him, so he left on a long journey that had no plan nor destination.
After a long journey, he reached Akaoka where his aunt lives.
Here he created his art in a sake warehouse.

Now, his art is displayed in Ekingura.
Please visit to feel the beautifully frightening energy that is Ekingura
