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. 




Recall the vistas of various famous places, select what attracts you and add your own interpretation. It is best to use this as a theme to design the whole of the garden while adding just the right amount of changes.
