Next week the wooden statue of Sogenji´s Kaisan is going to be repaired so that the layers of paint will not keep falling off.
The statues in the Sanmon mountain gate will be treated with special gas in August, so that the bugs eating the precious wood might go away.
After that they will all be taken with a crane out of the second floor to the Okayama City museum for the 300 year anniversary exhibition starting in October this year.
For this exhibition a memorial book with professional photos will be published of all precious statues and items at Sogenji.
