      Zuiho-in, a Christian Zen garden in a Buddhist temple

      Zuihō-in (Daitoku-ji) (瑞峯院)

      Zuihō-in is an extraordinary temple in Kyoto: It was founded by daimyo Otomo, who was one of the early Christians in Japan. He founded the temple as his family temple; he and his wife are buried here as well. Garden designer Shigemori Mirei, who created the gardens in 1961, included a Garden of the Cross and even a statue of the Virgin Mary in reference to the founder.

      The temple itself was built in 1546, after the Onin war (1467-77), so many of its building have never burnt and are still in their original shape. Shortly after

      The main garden to the south of the Hōjō is called Dokuza-tei (独坐庭 ). The Chinese characters mean Alone-Sitting-Garden and refer to an Island of the Taoist mythology. From the famous Horai mountain, the Mountain of the Blessed, a long and thin peninsula protrudes into the rough sea. Even further away is a single island, sitting alone in the rough waters of the wide sea. If you look at the garden, it is actually really easy to see the Horai mountain in the right-hand corner, the peninsula in front of it and the rough sea.
