Story & Recommendation
Hosen-in Temple – A picturesque garden and 700-year-old tree in Ohara, Kyoto
Hosen-in Temple is located in the rural Kyoto village of Ohara.
Ohara is about an hour by train from Kyoto station, but its many magnificent temples make it a worthwhile trip
One of those temples, Hosen-in, is the perfect place for calm, solitary meditation.
When you enter the temple’s main hall, you’re greeted by huge windowless frames which open out to the garden.
From inside the main hall, the frames transform the picturesque beautiful garden into what can only be described as a living painting.
If you so wish, you can also enjoy some matcha green tea and traditional Japanese sweets while you bask in the artistry of the garden.
