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.
