JGarden Description:Temple founded by Ashikaga Takauji in 1341 as the family temple. This compact and beautiful garden is not too trampled by the tourists. Marc Treib and Ron Herman recommend visiting in the late afternoon when the shadows are deep. 




My lodge is at the foot
Of the Moon Waiting Hill -
Almost I regret
When the shortening hill shadow
At length disappears.



Waga ie wa
Tsukimachi yama no
Fumoto nite
Katamuku sora no
Kage oshizo omo.
