  • Koetsu-ji Temple is located just about 100 meters west of Genko-an on the other side of the street. The garden of Koetsuji was originally the residence of Hon-ami Koetsu who was a noted artist in the 17th century. This entire property of the temple was granted to Koetsu from Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1615. After the death of Koetsu, this residence was turned into the temple in 1656. Today the temple belongs to Nichiren sect of Buddhism. Koetsuji Temple is known for its beautiful bamboo fences called Koetsu Hedge, and it also features an elegant tea garden with three tea houses with thached roof. ( Trans-word+ TGM Kyoto Guide )
