The inspiration behind Ōhara–juku dōbōshū & gyōshō

Originating in the Muromachi era, dōbōshū was a group of talented artist-monks skilled in a variety of traditional arts such as dance, theater, poetry, painting, ikebana, the tea ceremony and the art of perfume.

These cultural advisers served the shōguns, enhancing court life and accompanying their masters on their travels or to war. Possessing an lively sense of spectacle, they created for their audiences temporary settings and landscapes inspired by the aesthetic characteristics of each place they passed through.
