Story & Recommendation
A famous Japanese rock garden that symbolizes the Chinese mountain of immortals
The usually closed Daitoku-ji Kohrin-in temple will hold a special opening event this spring! Kohrin-in is a sub-temple of Daitoku-ji, the main temple of the Daitoku-ji faction of the Rinzai sect of Buddhism. A warlord named Hatakeyama Yoshifusa founded this temple and its name comes from his legal name. It fell to ruin as the Hatakeyama family clan weakened. However, the accomplished warlord of the Sengoku period, Maeda Toshiie carried out repairs on the roof and it became a temple to carry out Buddhist memorial services for the Maeda clan in addition to the Hatakeyama clan. At this special opening event, the designated cultural assets of the Omotemon front gate and the Hondo main hall will be open to the public. In addition, the Hojo garden which was restored from the original founding garden by Nakane Kinsaku, a landscaper who was active domestically and overseas during the Showa period, will also be opened.
