This temple is famous for its “gakubuchi teien,” where the view of the garden is framed by the pillars of the guest hall. Here, you can enjoy a gorgeous sight straight out of a Japanese painting while you savor matcha tea and traditional sweets. In autumn, the contrast between the trees’ crimson leaves and the lush green of the bamboo is particularly spectacular. Don’t miss out on the illumination held at night, either!
