There are two gardens at Tenneiji. The main garden is in the courtyard of the main hall and the Rakan-do and its Rakan Stone Garden. From the main hall where the Buddha is and the Rakan-do where the 16 Arhats are, the only white stone in the center expresses the Buddha and the 16 stones surrounding it express the 16 Arhats. The 16 statues of Rakan in the precincts are said to have been given by daimyo lords from 16 parts of the country. It is a stone garden that you can enjoy from a 360-degree angle. The other garden is the Sekishu-ryu garden which is not open to the public.
