Kyoto’s Eikando Zenrin-ji Temple

In the eastern mountain of Kyoto’s Higashiyama district, the Eikando Zenrin-ji Temple is set into the serene surroundings of a magnificent garden of maples.  The grounds were purchased in 853 when the monk Shinshō, a pupil of Kūkai, sought a place of worship of the Five Wisdom Buddas, or Gochi Nyorai.
