Gokonomiya Shrine Garden - Kobori Enshu, a renowned tea master and garden designer, arrived at Fushimi Magistrates office, next to this shrine,. The shogun, impressed with his work, took on Enshu. After WWII, the stones were moved to Gokonomiua Shrine and KinsakunNakane recreated the garden faithful to Kobori Enshu style, in the background, plants dominate and an artificial hill and dead waterfall are found on opposite sides of the surface, represented by Shirakawa sand. Otherwise, the shrine is known for its healing properties and serves as a focus point for the entire neighborhood.
