Seianji Temple Garden - The main hall was built in the early Edo period and deisgnated as a cultural asset by Otsu City, the guest palace is a nationally designated cultural asset. Like most temples in the region of Enraykuji these Sakamoto sub-temples were set up as retirement venues known as Satobo for venerated monks. Its main garden is called Yakusansui, designed and built in the early Edo period, composed of white sand, satsuki, azaleas and stones. Its hedge has been integrated into the garden. Although its designer is unknown, there are a number of Kobori Enshu gardens in the near area and so it is thought that he may have designed this garden as well although there is no proof of this.
