Shokokuji Temple Kaisando Garden - Shokoku-ji occupies a vast area of northern Kyoto with many sub-temples under its dominion. In addition to the main hall Hojo gardens, the Kaisando next door is really the showcase of Shokokuji gardens. The Kaisando front garden is dedicated to Muso Soseki a prominent figure in Japanese Buddhism and forerunner of Japanese garden design. The two tiered Ryubuchimizu-no- Niwa garden has white sand in the foreground and moss at the base of maple trees in back. The Kaisando garden has been listed as a National Important Property by the Japanese government.
