Đam mê du lịch: Khung cảnh rừng lá đỏ ngập tràn cố đô Kyoto
Ryoan-ji (The Temple of the Dragon at Peace) is a Zen temple located in northwest Kyoto, Japan. In 1450, Hosokawa Katsumoto, another powerful warlord, acquired the land where the temple stood. He built his residence there, and founded a Zen temple, Ryoan-ji. During the Onin War between the clans, the temple was destroyed. Hosokawa Katsumoto died in 1473. In 1488, his son, Hosokawa Matsumoto, rebuilt the temple.
Myoren-ji has a rock and moss garden. The best time to see the garden is clearly in early June when the rhododendrons bloom with pink colours. Myoren-ji also has a smaller inner garden with nice flowers and a low-profile water basin (蹲 - tsukubai) and a lantern. The garden is surrounded by temple buildings on the three other sides. One side has a granary (classic white two-floor construction), opposite to which is the main hall.
Juren-san Anraku-ji temple is open to public only when blossoms in its garden are in full bloom or colored leaves look beautiful. If you plan to visit famous Ginkaku-ji temple when Anraku-ji is open, it may be a good idea to add the Jodo-shu Buddhist sect temple to your list. Anraku-ji is a Zen temple founded in the late 13th century near Bessho Spa. In the temple grounds is an octagonal three-storied pagoda, the only one of its kind left in Japan, designated a National Treasure.
