JGarden Description:This is an ancient site, the temple being built in the Tempyô (729-749) period. There are three different pond gardens here that are said to have been built in the Momoyama period but are probably much more recent. The main study, around which two of the gardens are built was rebuilt in 1776 as Myoju-in. The garden on the south side of the shoin is the most notable with a karetaki (dry waterfall) in the pond, a stone slab bridge and houkyouintou style monument. 




Spirit turtles are carrying the
Fan-chang island on their heads.
Its high peaks rise to majestic heights.
Immortals flutter along the edges of
      the island.
Jade maidens play on the slopes of
      the mountains.

  Ts'ao Chih
