The national treasure Choju-jinbutsu-giga is in the form of a picture book; rendered in black ink paint; it is currently stored at the Kozan-ji temple in Kyoto.

The contents depict animals and people together showing the society of those ancient days.
The current configuration consists of 4 volumes called A, B, C, D.

The most famous panel is the story told by playful anthropomorphized rabbits, frogs, monkeys, etc.They engage in water play, gambling, sumo wrestling, legal proceedings, quarrels and other curious scenes. The theory is that the artist used these drawings to satirize human and contemporary societal mores of the time.
