Enkoji Garden, Kyoto
Enkoji was founded in 1601 by Tokugawa Ieyasu - its mission was to promote learning and scholarship in Japan. As a result, both monks and laymen were allowed as students. Enkoji is well known for its autumn leaves. Out front there is a modern zen garden, though the showcase is the tatami room overlooking the back garden.
