Shoden-ji - the main attraction of the temple is its Karesansui garden ideally viewed from the deck of the temple’s Hojo. The garden is said to have been laid out by Kobori Enshu. Its unique dry garden makes use of "borrowed scenery" in which the distant Mt. Hiei serves as one of the garden's main elements and backdrops.
