Enjoy the Crane and Turtle Garden in a quiet environment
Konchi-in comes into view about 5 minutes from Keage Station into the beautiful scenery. It is one of the schools of Nanzen-ji Temple which is extremely popular with visitors. Do not miss the Tsurukame-no-niwa (Crane and Turtle Garden), a gorgeous and well-known Karesansui (Japanese rock garden). The tea ceremony room in Kochi-in is also known to be one of the three major tea houses in Kyoto. Since not many people visit here, you can relax and go at your own pace.
