Saiho-ji Zen Garden
Saiho-ji is one of the earliest extant gardens to be associated with
Zen thought. It is popularly known as Kokedera (Moss Temple)
because of the prevailing ground cover of the garden - over 120 varieties
of moss are represented here. The garden is said to be the earliest
example of karesansui and to have been designed by Muso Soseki.
Recognized by UNESCO as World Cultural Heritage.
