Travel Guide - Chishaku-in Temple

InformationInformation

Chishaku-in Temple is the main temple of the Chizan School of Shingon Buddhism. The temple used to be Syounzen-ji, a temple established by Toyotomi Hideyoshi to mourn his son Tsurumatsu who died at the age of three. After a series of fire, the temple was reconstructed and changed its name.
The temple has a landscape garden for viewing from within a building, designed by Sen-no-Rikyu, the great ceremonial tea master of the Azuchi-Momoyama Period (1573 – 1603). The garden retains a vestige of its former glory.
