Artist Tenkei Shichiruido, 52, paints on one of 92 fusuma sliding doors that depict stories such as the introduction of Zen Buddhism into Japan at Ryosokuin temple in Kyoto. Ryosokuin is a sub-temple of Kenninji, the main temple of the Rinzai sect of Zen Buddhism. This year, the sect will hold an 800th memorial service for its founder, Yosai. Sixteen of the 92 doors will be unveiled to the public in July.
