Hidden ZEN garden KOMYOIN in Kyoto


I came across the hidden ZEN garden KOMYO-IN in Kyoto.

KOMYOIN temple

It’s founded 1391 walking distance from TOFUKUJI temple , famous for its colorful leaves in autumn.

Many famous ZEN gardens of Kyoto like RYOANJI , TOFUKUJI, NANZENJI are very crowded by tourists, often lack of ZEN feeling.
But this temple is quite calm and quiet because it’s close from famous TOFUKUJI temple , people don’t have energy to visit here after TOFUKUJI anymore.

You can sit in front of the garden as long as you can in this temple.
