Iou-ji Temple Moss Garden - Iou-ji is an old temple that is said to have been opened by Gyoki Bosatsu under the command of Emperor Shomu during the Nara period. The dry garden is thought to have been created by Kobori Enshu in the early Edo period as he was active in this area at that time, and even left his travel diary at Ioji Temple. The appearance of Satsuki and Azalea planting cut into pieces is quite unique The moss in front of the approach, the guest hall, and the back of the main buildings are also very beautiful - the approach along with the garden is a cultural property of Iwata City. Ioji îs meticulously maintained and even has sakura cherry blossoms in April a favorite local feature.
