Tempu Terrace imbued its name with a dual significance. Firstly, it evokes the conventional notion of a terrace. Secondly, in Japanese, there exists the word 'Terasu', pronounced similarly to 'Terrace', which conveys the meaning of 'to shine upon' or 'to illuminate'.

The creation of Tempu Terrace was driven by a profound aspiration to establish a sanctuary where visitors' hearts are illuminated with radiant light of the sun and  Dainichi Nyorai Buddha.

The requests for the artwork for Tempu Terrace involved incorporating rhododendrons, emblematic of Koyasan, and portraying Dainichi Nyorai Buddha, the primary deity of Shingon Buddhism, believed to embody the true essence of the universe and absolute truth.

I have visited Koyasan many times, but had never experienced it during the rhododendron season. Therefore, I took my time touring Koyasan to coincide with the blooming of the rhododendrons.

I visited the inner sanctuary of Koyasan, including Kongobuji Temple, Danjo Temple, and Kongosamai-in. There, I immersed myself in the deeply engraved prayers that persist to this day, while also reveling in the sight of rhododendrons blooming everywhere and the breathtaking beauty of nature.

- Everything in the universe, including human beings, trees, plants, flowers, water, and stones, constitutes the life of Dainichi Nyorai and is unified within Dainichi Nyorai's universe.

The rhododendrons, as well as each of us, also embody the life of Dainichi Nyorai. -

With this in mind, I depicted the overflowing blooming and blessing of the rhododendrons like the halo of Dainichi Nyorai Buddha.
