JGarden Description:This Soto Zen sect temple was founded in 1441 and is now famous as the temple of Toyokawa Inari. The main garden is a pond-viewing garden on the west side of the main temple hall. It is a lushly vegetated garden with palms (sotetsu), irises, black pines, clipped azaleas and other topiary (karekomi). Features includes a grass-covered sanzan (three mountain) formation, a karetaki (dry waterfall), and a long, narrow pond. 




Yield and overcome;
Bend and be straight.
