Shokokuji Temple Garden - Shokoku-ji occupies a vast area of northern Kyoto with many sub-temples under its dominion. The main hall’s gardens on the southern side, a large austere Omotesando Garden is composed only of white sand karesansui in the karesansui style, that does not prepare the visitor for the fabulous Urakata moss garden on the north side, that makes use of moss and a withered stream that brings depth to the whole and contrasts between dry stones and wet moss.
