Tenryu-ji is in the middle of Sagano/Arashiyama which is one of the most popular areas among visitors to Kyoto. The Zen Buddhist temple has an excellent Chisen-Kaiyu-Shiki (pond-stroll) garden that was laid out by a garden designer of genius, Muso Soseki (Muso Kokushi, or the Most Reverend Priest Muso, 1275-1351). Sogen-chi pond and Ishigumi (arranged rocks) in the garden are very much worth to see.
Tenryu-ji is the head temple of the Tenryu-ji branch of Rinzai Zen sect and one of World Cultural Heritage sites of Kyoto.
