JGarden Description:On the site of a villa originally built for Emperor Kameyama in 1274, this Nanzenji sub-temple has undergone numerous reconstructions, the most recent being in the Edo period. The pond and stroll garden here is off the beaten track but is still worth a visit. 




I shall go behind the mountain.
Go there too, O moon,
Night after night we shall keep each other company.
