Added to JGarden:
This is a Myoshinji sub-temple. Kano Motonobu(1475-1559) lived at here for quite some time and may have been responsible for the garden, though this is unclear. The original garden is a Shukkei karesansui garden of 4,734 sq ft.
The more recent garden by Nakane Kinsaku is quite large for that of a Zen temple.
Since I have not climbed
The mountains of Yoshino,
I can do nothing
But listen to others talk
Of the cherry blossoms there.
