Mimuroto-ji Zen Garden in Uji is also known as the “flower temple” for its large gardens of seasonal flowers.  Its most famous garden is a classic chisen-kaiyu-shiki or a pond strolling garden. The rounded shrubs throughout the zen garden and pond garden are meant to resemble green tea bushes for which Uji is famous throughout Japan. The present main hall of Mimurotoji houses the temple's principle image of the thousand-armed Kannon Bodhisattva.
