JGarden Description:The temple is said to have first been built during the Heian period on the higher ground to the rear of the site, but was moved to its presnt location and then rebuilt during the Kamakura period. The main garden was probably built at this time. It is designed as a pond-viewing garden but not large. It has several elements typical of the Heian period including: a horai style penninsula, crane island, and an old-style dry rock formation (koshiki karesansui). 




The flowers withered,
Their color faded away,
While meaninglessly
I spent my days in the world
And the long rains were falling.

  Ono no Komachi
  9th century
