JGarden Description:The temple on this site is quite ancient and is thought to have been built in 836, during the Heian period. The garden is located on the south side of the study and was probably not built until the middle Edo period, though even this has been reconstructed several times following various floods and landslides. The garden consists of many stones assembled in groups among hillocks of various sizes. The are also three waterfalls and a stone slab bridge leading to a kamejima (turtle island) stone island. The later element is probably a later addition to the design.
