Japan last week - Kokkenzan Gyokusenji Temple and garden

After visiting Mt Haguro, we went to Kokkenzan Gyokusenji Temple and saw the beautiful garden there.  The garden was built in 1450 and altered in 1650.  This tranquil location is like stepping back in time.

We enjoyed Japanese matcha there too.


 A couple were having their wedding photos taken at the garden.  What a wonderful location!
