雪舟sesshu toyo

Sesshu Toyo was the most prominent Japanese master of ink and wash painting from the Muromachi period(1336-1573). He stayed in Masuda twice and painted some of his masterpieces.

In Masuda, there are two gardens which he designed. They are called as "Sesshu Garden", one is in Ikoji Temple and another is in Manpukuji Temple.

Sesshu spent his later years in a temple on a hill-top in Masuda.
Now, there is Sesshu Memorial Museum on the hill-top and his grave yard behind the museum.

The former head curator of the museum, Kiyoshi Miyamoto studied about Sesshu and delivered four papers in the Museum Magazine. I put links to pages of his work. I hope they are helpfull for your study.
