Saiho-ji Zen Garden Kyoto Japan
The oldest important garden of the Muromachi Period was re-designed by a Zen Buddhist priest, Muso Soseki. It is a stroll garden, set in a dark forest and designed for meditation.
Saiho-ji is one of the earliest 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.
Recognized by UNESCO as World Cultural Heritage.
