To truly see Kyoto is to see its gardens.
There are more than 1,600 exquisite examples
in the city, from the meticulously tended
Ryoan-ji — a temple with the most famous
Zen rock garden in the world—to the Saiho-ji Temple, also known as the Moss Temple, which
has 100 varieties of moss. A unique expression
of beauty and harmony, Kyoto’s gardens are a
treasure to behold.
