InformationInformation

Manshu-in Temple, also known as Manshu-in Monzeki, was originally founded around the 8th century by Saicho (Dengyo Daishi) on Mt. Hiei-zan. Then it was eventually moved to the current location in 1656. The architecture, works of art and garden are impressive.
Its Daigenkan (The Grand Entrance) building contains "Tiger Room" with images of imaginary tigers painted by Kano Eitoku, "Bamboo Room" with Japan's first wood-block prints that depicts bamboo trees, and "Peacock Room" with Nanga-style painting of peacocks by Ganku.
The Dai-Shoin (Great Shoin) main hall contains rooms much like those in the Katsura Imperial Villa. The hall is listed as an Important Cultural Property.
The temple's Karesansui-style garden contains a notable 400 year-old Japanese white pine stands within an "island" on white sand that represents water.
