Categories: Gardens, Sacred & Religious Sites, Nature & Parks, Tourist Spots
Sit on tatami mat and experience masterworks of Japanese gardening at Shisendo Temple. The temple, established in 1641 by a key Japanese philosophers and landscape architect Ishikawa Jōzan, was created to highlight serenity and intimacy. Portraits of 36 Chinese poets decorate the main room. The temple's gardens boast camellias, water lilies, irises, rhododendron, hortensias, and mountain cherry. The garden features a soze, a water-powered bamboo device designed to scare large herbivores with its occasional clunking sound. Exquisite dry and stone landscape architecture earn these gardens a title of "poet's gardens."

一乗寺の山寺巡りの最後、曼殊院門跡→圓光寺→詩仙堂と来ました。 山門の風格はさすがです。本殿よりも傾斜に作られた庭園の花の種類が印象的です。 鹿威しがいい感じですね。順路は本殿内見学の後、庭園見学となります。 昔からの名所とあってか年代層もやや高め、縁側から庭園を眺める姿が目立ちます。End of Ichijo-ji Temple-hopping, of manshuin monzeki → 圓光寺 → scale Hall! Stately gate is quite impressive. Types of flowers in the garden than the main hall made in is impressive. Kofu is a nice touch. Route after the shrine visit, and garden tours. Stand out there and attractions from the old ages also increased slightly and the veranda overlooking the garden.show original

From the hospital to manshuin monzeki, 圓光寺 has been laid. Gate is surprisingly small, feel history. It is filled with people like a book, relax is famous since ancient times, but also building smaller, sitting on the veranda overlooking the garden. Follow the route the garden tours offers a variety of plants. It is a shishiodoshi is a nice touch.show original
