Daikaku-ji Temple - Daikaku-ji is often called Sagan Gosho because of its connection with the imperial family as an imperial cloister. It is one of the largest and most important temples in Kyoto. Its Stone Stage, surrounded by a vast dry zen garden, is all that remains of the original Godai-do. Today the Stone Stage is occasionally used for performances of gagaku court music and court dances. Surrounding the garden and court stage, are a series of wooden corridors that are famous for their nightingale squeaksIng sounds, once used as early warning systems for unexpected danger approaching. The Corridor of Village Rain or Murasame-no-Roka- besides is squeaks, has a low ceiling that swords or spears could be swung and cause danger to passing noblemen.
