Story & Recommendation
Enjoy the beautiful picture frame garden in Ohara
Hosen-in Temple (Hosenin) is located in Ohara, Kyoto. It takes about an hour by train from Kyoto station. Hosen-in Temple is the perfect place for a calm and solemn meditating moment. When you enter the main hall, you may be amazed by the huge window frames without window glass that open to the garden. You can enjoy this beautiful garden inside the main hall of the temple, the whole scene starting to look like one picture inside a frame. If you so wish, you can also get some matcha tea and traditional Japanese sweets while you enjoy the gorgeous garden.
