Biography Sakamoto, Kj 坂本 光浄 (1875 - 1969)

Kj Sakamoto was the 37th superintendent priest of the Kiyoshi Kojin Seicho-ji (temple), built in 893 A.D. by order of Emperor Uda (887-897), the 59th emperor. It is located c. 20 kilometers N.W. of Osaka. Kj Sakamoto was a close friend of Tomioka Tessai (1836-1924), and after the latter's death he was one of his most ardent advocates. A lot of Tessai's works were held by the temple, and in 1975 the Tessai Art Museum was opened, realized by the 38th superintendent priest, Koso.
Kj Sakamoto is also the author of a book describing the temple holdings of Tessai's work, which was published in 1957.
