By Taizoin Zen Buddhist Temple Follow | Public

The temple of Taizo-in has been beloved by people for more than 600 years. Its appeal stems from each and every one of its unique treasures: the dry landscape garden by Kano Motonobu, Josetsu's masterpiece, Hyonenzu ("Catching a Catfish with a Gourd"), one of Japan's oldest surviving ink paintings, the Yoko-en (a pond-and-stroll-style garden), and a suikinkutsu, a wash basin in which drops of water echo clearly in a hidden underground chamber. These historic treasures will fascinate any visitor to the temple.
