JGarden Description:This Shingon Omuro sect temple was established by the monk Gyôki and is widley know for its stone seki no jizô. The garden was built in the middle Edo period fronting a storage building and the temple study. The study looks out on a koi pond and across to a beautiful rustic teahouse. A narrow stone slab bridge crosses the pond diagonally leading the the teahouse. 




Without a speck of dust's being raised,
the mountains tower up;
without a single drop's falling,
the streams plunge into the valley.
