This world cultural heritage temple was built in 1339 by Takauji Ashikaga to mourn Emperor Godaigo’s Bodhisattva Buddha. It has also been designated as one of the five most important Rinzai temples of Kyoto. Over 150 sub-temples existed at the time of construction, but after eight great fires the halls were rebuilt. Kaiyu-style and shakkei-style gardens are used around the historical and scenic spots of Arashiyama and Kameyama, all of which were created by the founder of the temple, Muso Soseki. These gardens, ordered by the Ishigaki family, are representative of a Zen temple in the Nanbokucho era (1336-1392).
