This small, secluded temple named after its founder, Honen, the founder of Jodo Budhhism was constructed in the Edo Period. The Camellia garden is in full bloom at the end of March, and the maple leaves are wonderful to view in the middle of November.


Details
This small, secluded temple named after its founder, Honen, the founder of Jodo Budhhism was constructed in the Edo Period. Tucked away in the forested hills, this is a good visiting alternative to the crows of nearby Ginkakuji. Through the thatched, wooden gate, a pair of raked sand mounds ("Byakusadan-Terrace of White Sand") appear on either side of the walkway. The designs are changed regularly in the mornings by the monks. The small hall is often used as an exhibition or event space and Honen-in is often the venue for varied contemporary art. Check the Kansai Time Out for exhibition schedule. The Camellia garden is in full bloom at the end of March, and the maple leaves are wonderful to view in the middle of November.
