This temple was burned down during the Onin Wars, but reconstructed in 1497. Later other buildings were added to the grounds for another sect of Buddhism.
I trod over wooden floors peeping into shrines including the looking-back Amida shrine. This was a site to idle because it was relatively free of tourists compared with most places in Kyoto.
The few who also visited this site sat admiring the beautiful gardens; some watched the koi swirl through the water or admired Hojo Pond.
