  • Located on the west side of Qingji Jinomon in Arashiyama Sagano, Kyoto, this temple is a single temple of the Rinzai Sect. It is a bodhisattva temple of Yoshiyoshi Ashikaga, the second shogun of the Muromachi Shogunate, and Masayuki Kusunoki in the South Dynasty. It is a historical Zen temple built by emperor Shirakawa's request in the Heian period. It is also known as a beautiful garden of autumn leaves. It is interesting to see yoshiyoshi Ashikaga and Masayuki Kusunoki's bodhisattva temple.

  • It is a temple next to Seisen-ji Temple. I was lucky because I was able to visit at the time of the autumn leaves. No matter where you turn, you'll be fascinated by the red-colored sheep. You can enjoy a leisurely stroll in the garden, and you will forget the flow of time.
