Surprising garden

Behind the very usual entrance there is a gorgeous garden - which I didn't expect it all, its quite big and walking around reveals more and more sides to it.

Well, this is one very beautiful garden in Kyoto, which is located near the Ritsumeikan University. I am sure you will not regret a visit. Its location is a bit far from the main line, but side by side with the University.

We spent some two hours trying to find the shrine on the photo, only to find out that we should've been looking for T?-ji (and not Tojin) close to the Kyoto railway station instead.
