Zenkōji Amida Triad
The principal object of devotion at the Zenkōji temple in Nagano is a gilt bronze Amida triad said to have traveled from India through China on its way to Japan in the early 600s. A hidden icon, or hibutsu, the Zenkōji Amida triad was rarely seen. As faith in Amida gained popularity in later centuries, worshippers sought models of the powerful Zenkōji triad for use in personal devotion.
