Jiko-in was founded in 1663 by Sekishu Katagiri, a feudal lord of the area who mastered the way of Zen Buddhism and tea ceremony. He believed that tea ceremony was part of his meditation regime, and so constructed a tea ceremony room and garden for this purpose. The garden is well known for its elaborate shrubbery - and also includes a larger view of the Yamato plain and hills, contrasted with the temple, tea room, trees, stones, shrubs and grass. Jiko-in is also very unique in that it is a rare exception that visitors can wander around the shrubs and dry rock garden. Included in the cost of entry is matcha tea and sweets.
