Hōnen-in (法然院) is a Buddhist temple located in Sakyō-ku, Kyoto, western Japan.

History[edit]

The Nihonga painter Inshō Dōmoto received a commission from the temple to redecorate two rooms. Normally the rooms had paintings by the Kano school. Two rooms that he painted in 1971 "Soft breeze approaching" depict the Pure Land. An abstract painting, it shows willows or trees swaying in the wind.[1][2][3][4]
