令和絵巻に見る仁和寺と戊辰戦争 特別展

Ninnaji Temple and the Boshin War: A Special Exhibition of Digitized Scrolls for the Modern Times






This special exhibition highlights the turbulent story of the end of the Tokugawa shogunate and the Meiji Restoration as depicted in the 40-meter picture scrolls called the Boshin Senso Emaki (Boshin War Picture Scrolls). These very important historical scrolls are currently under the care of Ninnaji Temple.

The picture scrolls are filled with close-ups of historical moments digitized at ultra-high definition using state-of-the-art scanning technology developed at Kyoto University.

The picture scrolls were brought to life by digitally colorizing them using the latest available technologies.
