Kenchoji garden is located in the back of the temple complex, behind the Hojo quarters of the head priest. Muso Soseki, a famous Zen priest and garden designer, is said to have designed and constructed the garden. Sampeki Pond reminds of the shape of the character which stands for mind or heart and is an important element in Zen Buddhism.
