Ikkyu-ji Shuon-an - Shuon-an Hojo Garden is a classic karesansui rock garden. Another smaller moss-and-rock garden with a small stone pagoda is located around a back corner of the hojo. The garden have been designated a place of scenic beauty by the Japanese government. Ikkyu himself is buried here and as he was an imperial prince the mausoleum is under the jurisdiction of the Imperial Household Agency. Shojin ryori vegetarian temple cuisine is served here with advance reservations.
