JGarden Description:The garden on this temple site was Professor Ernest Fenellosa's favorite garden in Japan. He often visited here to meditate and study and his ashes were entombed here on his death in 1908. 




Since before anyone remembers
It has been clear
Shining like silver
Though the moonlight penetrates it and the wind ruffles it
No trace of either remains.
Today I would not dare to expound the secret of the stream bed
But I can tell you
That the blue dragon is coiled there.

  Muso Soseki
  trans. by W.S. Merwin and Soiku Shigematsu
  14th century
