This sutra case consists of the body part, which is made of four cylindrical sections, the double-layered base part, whose bottom is made in the shape of a flower with six petals, and a lid, which was made in the shape of a bowl which has a sōrin-spire attached to it. The four cylindrical parts of the body are stacked to form a long cylinder. Seven sets of four of five lines are carved along the circumference of the body, and the images of Buddhist deities introduced in the chapter Darani-bon in the Hoke-kyō (Lotus sutra)
