JGarden Description:One of the smaller Daitokuji sub-temples, it was founded in the Momoyama period by Hosokawa Tadaoki (1563-1645) 




A high mountain
soars wihout
a grain of dust.
A waterfall
plunges without
a drop of water.
Once or twice
on an evening of moonlight
in the wind
this man here
has been happy
playing the game that suited him.
