JGarden Description:This small garden is tucked away in the northeast corner of Kiyomizu-dera, and while the main temple buildings are usually mobbed with people, this one doesn't attract the same attention. The garden includes a couple of skillful shakkei or borrowed landscape views. 




It has been said that there are landscapes one can walk trhough, landscapes one can walk throug, landscapes which can be gazed upon, landscapes in which one can dwellů Those fit for walking through or being gazed upon are not equal to those in which one may dwell or ramble.

  painter, Northern Sung
