Zuiko-in is a sub-temple of Manpuku-ji featuring a modern zen garden surrounding the small temple’s main hall. The small garden is special for its unique design following an L shape. Its dominant feature is a koi pond and a stone bridge lies over the pond following its arc. This unusual bridge pattern provides shade for the carp. Numerous small features are also found at Zuiko-in: a stone lantern, a metallic one, a tsukubai water basin. Best of all, lack of crowds make iZuiko-in a special visit. Voluntary donations, and visitors must ring the bell to ask permission to visit, but it is normally open to the public.
