Jiunji Temple Zen Garden - Jiunji Temple is blessed with a variety of growth: pine, cherry blossoms as well as a dry rock garden and moss which highlights each season. Gardeners are brought in from Kyoto to maintain the trees and the garden. But besides all that, adjacent to the temple and garden is a huge pine tree that was planted in the 16th century by the zen monk Tenkei. Jiunji is surrounded by gardens - not only one garden, but an array of gardens, zen, moss and a pond garden behind the main hall.
