"Gautama Buddha and Shinran" is an exhibition to commemorate the opening of the Ryukoku Museum and the 750th anniversary of the death of Shinran Shonin. This is an opportunity for visitors to trace the roots of Buddhism and the footsteps of Guatama Buddha and Shinran. The exhibit introduces Guatama Buddha, who gave birth to Buddhism, and Shinran Shonin who founded Shin Buddhism from the perspectives of "Buddha" (life and footsteps), "Dharma" (teachings), and "Priest" (religious community and later developments).
