JGarden Description:A Tendai Buddhist temple. This temple is famous for its enormous, horizontally trained pine tree yuryumatsu, said to be 500-600 years old. The surrounding area is relatively rural and the gardens are not often visited. The temple is sited on a mountainside and traversing a series of paths and steps is required to reach it. The temple buildings occupy several levels and gardens accompany each one.
