Sento Gosho Garden located east of the Kyoto Imperial Palace, once also contained Sento Palace. The garden is mosty all that has survived. The garden’s design has been attributed to Kobori Enshu, and consists of two ponds connected by a several bridges, and surrounded by paths for strolling. The southern pond contains two islands connected to each other and to the shore. Part of the sound pond shore consists of a pebble beach. Each and every stone was carefully chosen for its size and shape.
