Reihokan Treasure Museum 霊宝館
For a well-guarded past
Built in 1921, the Reihokan Treasure Museum has the goal of preserving the cultural heritage of the city and presenting all the collections to visitors under one roof, an ideal complement to outdoor visits of temples.
Over two hundred statues, mandalas - Buddhist paintings and drawings, meditation supports - and other artistic productions are proudly exhibited in the permanent collection, while in reserve, thousands of works await their turn to come out for a temporary exhibition.
The Koyasan visitor information center's website boasts that this museum has more than eight percent of the national treasures and important cultural assets of the entire Japanese archipelago. Are they proud? They have reason to be!
