Nanzen-ji Nanzen-in

Nanzen-in is a sub-temple of Nanzen-ji. Located just behind the famous aqueduct of the Meiji period, this temple is rather small (esp. compared to nearby Tenju-an). Yet, Nanzen-in’s main building is surrounded by a lovely wet-landscape moss garden that is at its best during the summer and autumn seasons. Since the entry fee is rather cheap (300 Yen) and the place opens earlier (8.30AM) than most other gardens nearby, I recommend entering this garden, esp. on a rainy day during maple foliage season.

Admission: open year-round
