Korin-in, dry garden.jpg

Korin-in, a sub-temple of Daitoku-ji, was founded by Yoshifusa Hatekeyama, a warlord of the Noto (now Ishikawa) Prefecture, in 1521-23. The hojo (main building) and other elements are in the Muromachi style. It has a famous tea room, Kankyo-tei, and a great dry garden. Korin-in is normally closed except for a couple of times each year. We got lucky.
