Said to have been built by Crown Prince Shotoku in 605, this temple was named as such due to it being a place of teaching ("kyo") surrounded by forest ("rin"). The magnificent moss-covered large stones lined up in the garden is conveyed as per Enshu Kobori’s wabisabi world (world view cemeteries around the acceptance of transience and imperfection). The thatched roof of ths study building, designated as a important cultural property by the city, is another highlight of Kyorinbo Temple. The view of around 200 trees all glowing red next to a huge bamboo grove during late-November is also extremely stunning.
