JGarden Description:A nunnery that sits on a heavily forested site and against a sloping hillside. A waterfull; small pond; clipped azaleas; camellias; maples; cherries; known for its fall color. 




With the years that have passed by
It has grown austere and holy
   On Mount Kageru:
The cedar tree, upright like a spear,
Already has a layer of moss at the root.

  Zeami Motokiyu
  15th century
