DAISENIN TEMPLE - JAPAN
Daisen-in was founded in 1509, and belongs to the Daitokuji temple. The main building is designated as a national treasure, and is one of the oldest Hojo-style architecture of Zen faction, along with Ryugen-in, which also belongs to Daitokuji. The beautiful garden is of a typical Kare-sansui style from the Muromachi period, believed to have built by Kogaku Soko, the 76th head of Daitokuji temple. Daisenin Garden is one of the prototypical Karesansui dry gardens that works extraordinarily well in a very confined space.
