Jizo-ji Temple Garden belongs to the Soto Zen sect of Buddhism. There is garden of kaiyu shiki teien style of the early Edo period. Here, the backdrop and borrowed scenery have been used skillfully. Its unique Y shaped waterfall, is an unusual addition. There is an stone bridge the crosses over the pond, festooned with iris in season while tiny islands appear to be afloat within the pond. The garden at Jizo-ji Temple is almost hidden and takes some effort to find it behind the main hall. Seeking it out is well worth the effort.
