Kozanji Temple lies along the Nakasendo Road in Kiso. It was originally founded during the Kamakura Period. The temple and its garden have been reconstructed from the devastated temple that was once here known as Kiso Sandai-ji Temple. Behind the main hall the modern Japanese garden, named Nunniwa, was created by Shigemori Mirei. This large dry garden in is said to be the largest karesansui garden in Japan - without a single tree or blade of grass. The stones were brought in from the Seto Inland Sea.
