Located at the foot of Mt. Hiei in eastern Kyoto, Enkoji is one of many temple gardens that dot this part of town. 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.
