This temple built in northwest Kyoto in 1450 is famous for a rock garden.
The garden is graveled fine and white, and set about with earthen walls as if a great picture is set in a frame. Within it, fifteen stones of different sizes are superbly placed in five groups. What is interesting about the garden is that it expresses water by not using water. The temple and gardens are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Be sure to the temple and the rock garden when you come to Kyoto.
