Shoden-ji main attraction of the temple is a Karesansui garden, ideally to be viewed from the deck of the temple’s Hojo. The garden is said to have been laid out by Kobori Enshu. In 1935 Shigemori Mirei had to restore it. Its unique dry garden makes use of "borrowed scenery" in which the distant Mt. Hiei serves as one of the garden's main elements.
