JGarden Description:This is a sub-temple of the huge Kôyasan complex. It was moved here during the Genroku era (1688-1704) and the garden here was probably constructed at the same time. The garden is located on the east side of the guest room. It uses a leafy sampan on the northeast side to provide a waterfall for the pond. The pond is small but despite this, it sports a relatively large kamejima (turtle island), a dejima, and other small islands. 




Go to the pines if you want to learn about the pine, or to the bamboo if you want to learn about the bamboo. And in doing so, you must leave your subjective preoccupation with yourself. Otherwise you impose yourself on the object and do not learn.
