MUSO Culture Festival 2021 is a culture festival held in Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture.

Various contents were planned to be developed around the main venue "Daichuji" from 13th to 21st of February. However, Japanese government declared a state of emergency due to a recent situation with pandemic in Japan. The contents originally planned will be shown mainly by the technology "Matterport" that allows people to freely move around the space online. We named virtual Daichuji temple as "Muchu kukan"

The word "MUSO" comes from "Muso Soseki", who established Daichuji Temple.
He was also well known for designing beautiful Japanese gardens that depicted harmony between landscape and scenery.

Come enjoy the refined culture, through exploring the essence of Zen.

Daichuji is a Zen Buddhist temple located by the foot of Mt. Fuji at the northern part of Numazu city in Shizuoka, Japan.The temple was founded by Muso Soseki in 1313. However, there was a Shingon Buddhist temple before then, thus an image of the Buddhist deity Fudo Myoo is enshrined as the principle object of worship.
Daichuji maintained a relation with the Imperial Villa in Numazu, welcoming visits by the Imperial Family. Onkoden hall was built as a resting room artly in the style of Art Nouveau in 1909. Onkoden is one of the few remaining Meiji period wooden buildings in Numazu.
Locally harvested taro potato was offered to the Imperial Family at the times of the visits. It grows as big as a head of baby and later named after the temple,"Daichuji potato" meaning the potato from Daichuji by the Imperial Family.
