Hokongo-in Lotus Garden - Hokongo-in Temple is a Ritsu sect temple dedicated to Amida Nyorai, and is famous for its pond garden with lotus blossoms. The history of Hokongo-in began in 824 when a minister built a villa on its present location and like many villas, it was converted to a temple after the owner's death. The temple's name comes from an empress who restored the temple and decided to call it Hokongo-in “Temple of the Diamond Law”.
