Nishikyogoku Kindergarten was newly reborn in 2019.

I painted two paintings that flank both sides of the Jizo Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha), the main deity of the kindergarten.

Kokuzo Bodhisattva (Akasagarbha) is a Buddha who, like the void, bestows upon us infinite wisdom and virtue. Jibo Kannon (Goddess of Mercy) is a Buddha who grants us great and deep compassion like a mother. I chose these two Buddhas so that they would watch over the children with wisdom and compassion forever.

At Nishikyogoku Kindergarten, there are groups for each grade: dandelion, lily, cherry, and violet. I incorporated these flowers into the patterns on the robes of Kokuzo Bodhisattva and Jibo Kannon.


As these two paintings of Kannon are the first ones the kindergarteners see, I aimed to create works that would evoke feelings of kindness and warmth.
