Japanese-Style Star Wars Art Shown at Buddhist Temple

One of Kyoto's most famous temples Kiyomizu-dera is a must see if you visit Japan. But if you're in Japan this December, you can check out something rather unique at this World Heritage site: Star Wars art.

Like the Mario and Luigi painting unveiled earlier this year, this is a Rimpa-style Force Awakens screen painting with Kylo Ren as Raijin (雷神), the Japanese god of thunder and storms, and Rey as Fujin (風神), the Japanese god of wind.

Next to the painting, you can see the Japanese word "kakusei" (覚醒), which means "awake," written in calligraphy by the temple's Chief Abbot.
