In Engaku-ji Temple

Hime-hiougi-suisen (Montbretia) flowers in the woods. “Hime-hiougi-suisen” means a little wood-fan narcissus.

The moss-covered stone statues of various Kanzeon-Bosatsues in the front garden of the Hojyo.

The Sin-ji-ike of the zen-garden. “Sin-ji-ike” is a pond whose shape is made to represent the Kanji-character of “Kokoro” (spirit or soul.)

Gaku-Ajisai (Hydrangea macrophylla) flowers.

A Nyoirin-Kanzeon-Bosatsu statue in a pose of thinking about salvation for every living being.
