 This is designated as an attachment to Tengu Zoshi (Tokyo National Museum A-31), an important cultural property representing the Kamakura period. While this is a close copy of the A-31 Enryakuji scroll with the same terms, writing style and even spacing, there is one difference in that this one uses paper with a cloud motif. Some claim that this is the original and A-31 is an attachment to it.
