Add to MyRoute
Translated from Japanese by

The late Dr. Shoichi Sumida (1893-1968), who is known as a maritime history and legal historian, was also active as an old tile researcher, and the materials collected by inspecting temple sites across the country are highly evaluated academically and can be said to be the best collection in Japan. The exhibition also focuses on "character tiles" written with spatula, especially the character tiles of female names, and also exhibits the character tiles that are rarely discovered in excavations, giving a glimpse of women's interest in Buddhist faith.
