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. 




Departed the prince --
Vanished the smoke
Of Shiogama;
Lonely the beach
Along its length.



Kimi masade
Kemuri taenishi
Shiogama no
Ura sabishiku mo
Mie wataru ka na.

  Ki no Tsurayuki (866-946)
