Daichiji Garden - It is said that the beginning of the temple the area was formed by Gyoki. The name of the temple is also derived from Shinji-no-Ike pond which moistened the surrounding paddy fields as irrigation water for more than 1,000 years. The Horai Garden of Daichiji Shoin, a Zen temple. It is said that Kobori Enshu, who built Minakuchi Castle in the Edo period, created this garden as a landscape garden. The two-tiered large pruned bushes in front of the temple represents the waves of the sea, and the figure of a treasure ship floating on pure white sand. It is wonderful to symbolize the Seven Lucky Gods as if they were riding on the waves. In addition, the stonework of Mt. Horai seen from the front of the tea room leading to the temple is also impressive.
