JGarden Description:This Nanzenji sub-temple includes both a dry, karesansui garden and a garden with a pond in the shape of the Japanese character for spirit/heart, kokoro




The leaves of the trees are falling.
In the house one cannot hear anything--
Both nights when showers fall
And nights when showers do not fall.

  Minamoto Yorizane
