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