JGarden Description:Kiyomizu-dera doesn't really have a garden, but its use of the hillsides, borrowed landscapes and stunning views from the main structure are worth noting. One of the sub-temples, Jojuin, also has a garden. 




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.
