Zuisenji Garden Hydrangeas - Zuisenji Temple Garden was laid out by renowned garden designer and Zen Buddhist monk Muso Kokushi, founder of the temple. Zuisen-ji is located in a valley called Momijigayatsu surrounded by hills which serve as natural background for the garden. Beyond the small pond Tennyodo cave is a hall used for meditation and appreciating the moon reflected on the surface of Choseichi Pond. Zuisenji Temple Garden uses these natural rocks and caves as elements of the garden. Bridges are built across the western side of the pond. The garden is the only remaining one of the gardens in Kamakura that were constructed during the Kamakura Era. Must Kobushi believed that understanding landscapes and gardens led to the cultivation of the human mind. The temple is also known for its flowers and trees in other parts of the temple grounds, particularly plum trees and hydrangeas.
