by Fugai Ekun (1568-1650)
Fugai rejected the traditional Zen monastic lifestyle and led a hermit-like existence living in a small cave with a view of Mt. Fuji. He is one of the few Soto masters to have done painting, and his works are noted for their soft, haunting, and intimate quality. He is most famous for his images of Daruma.
