Nanzen-ji 南禅寺 by M_Strasser
Via Flickr:
Nanzen-ji (南禅寺 Nanzen-ji), or Zuiryusan Nanzen-ji, formerly Zenrin-ji (禅林寺 Zenrin-ji), is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. Emperor Kameyama established it in 1291 on the site of his previous detached palace. It is also the headquarters of the Nanzen-ji branch of Rinzai Zen. The precincts of Nanzen-ji are a nationally designated Historic Site and the Hōjō gardens a Place of Scenic Beauty. (Wikipedia) As part of the temple ground, there is a little garden. If I remember correctly, you had to pay an entrance fee. I really liked this garden.

I woke up this morning wishing I was in Kyoto so I could walk through its ancient gardens and find a little peace in a Kyoto state of mind… Tenjuan is a sub-temple of Nanzen-ji in Kyoto and has a superb garden. The history of Nanzen-ji goes back to 1337.
