Hokukuji Temple, sometimes call "the Bamboo Temple" because of its large bamboo grove, was once the family temple of both the Ashikaga and Uesugi clans. The temple and zen gardens were established by a Zen Buddhist monk Tengan Eko. The zen garden uses "borrowed scenery" from the surrounding landscape.
