Jikkoin Temple - Ohara, Kyoto Japan

Jikkoin Temple is right across from the entrance on Nanzenin on Ohara just north of Kyoto. I almost passed on it since the price was high (700 Yen) and it seamed small but I went ahead inside. I got some tea and a sweet to enjoy while I looked upon the gardens. The gardens were lovely. It is a sub-temple of Shorin-in back in 1013.

This garden, Keishin-en, takes water from the Ritsusen River. It is a great small garden and you can take your time viewing while you drink your tea.

Lots of moss.

Even the stone lantern had some moss cover on it.
