JGarden Description:Kiyomizu-dera doesn't really have a garden, but its use of the hillsides, borrowed landscapes and stunning views from the main structure are worth noting. One of the sub-temples, Jojuin, also has a garden. 




Spirit turtles are carrying the
Fan-chang island on their heads.
Its high peaks rise to majestic heights.
Immortals flutter along the edges of
      the island.
Jade maidens play on the slopes of
      the mountains.

  Ts'ao Chih
  3rd century B.C.
