JGarden Description:Genjoin is one hall in the Heisenji temple complex which is, in turn, part of the Hakusan Jinja shrine. Its history is not well understood. The buildings that originally fronted the garden are gone, but the small pond-viewing garden can still be identified from its main trees in the center and the whirlpool rock formation. 




Good people of old
Looked oft at Mount Yoshino
And said that it was good.
Good people of our time,
Take a good look
At the good mountain of Yoshino!
Good people,
Take a good look!!
