Chisen Kansho Horai Teien is the north garden of Nonin-ji Temple with a symbolic waterfall in the back and a pond under the waterfall, making use of the steep slope of the side of the Tenran-zan mountain. The garden was created in the Momoyama Period and has been selected as one of the 100 famous Japanese gardens. The garden is considerable as it represents many gardening methods and forms of the era. These include the artificial hill, an island that expresses the form of a tortoise, as well as a tsurujima that is to say an island made of stones and a pine tree to suggest the flight of a crane, a stone bridge, a cave, and a pond.
