  • It is one of the Sub-temples of Daitoku Temple was built by the eldest son of the Sengoku period daimyo Hosokawa Yusai Tadaoki publicly. From the gate passing through bamboo long approach is also incredibly friendly.

  • I visit on a weekday in winter. Than I could approach until the reception is simple of MOSS, stone and bamboo fences, was expecting the color of Moss was brilliant. And snows fell in the past week, Sun has been interrupted because bamboo is coming before the main Maple garden, nice contrast of moss green and white snow. I visited the mellow and relaxed, in contrast to the bright landscape garden in the spring and autumn seasons. Thing when Hideyoshi Kitano tea hot tea house, there are many attractions, such as the stone lantern of the Hosokawa family and grave of Tadaoki and his wife, Garcia became legendary. Few visitors on weekdays was very quiet and could see it slowly.

  • It might be that the day I went was not good.
  • Koutou-in is family temple of Hosokawa family. Garasha (Hosokawa Tadaoki's wife) who is Christian and some other family members of Hosokawa are enshrined in this place. (His real name is referred to jade in the daughter of Akechi Mitsuhide) gratia Hosokawa Tadaoki Hosokawa and his wife, is enshrined. There is a maple and bamboo grove so the time of the fall foliage is spectacular. Maple, bamboo and foliage was spectacular and.
