Daijo-in garden was designed by Zenami in the mid Muromachi Period and fell into ruin with the demise of the temple of the same name. In 1958 the site was designated as a National Scenic Place then the Japan National Trust restored the garden to its original brilliance. The former Daijo-in temple prospered as a temple whose chief priest was a member of the imperial family but now only the garden remains.
