SpotEast and West Treasure Houses

The East and West Treasure Houses (Kudara-Kannon-do included) are the locations to find displays of Japanese treasures such as Kudara-Kannon-zo. Buddhist statues, paintings or altar related articles, masks and music used in court dance as well as scriptures and mural paintings are all displayed in turn. It is said that a look at the treasures and buildings of Horyuji will provide the wisdom of the nation's earliest days of Buddhism worship.
