Jigen-do temple honors the monk Tenkai Jigen, and is part of Shigain Monzeki Temple. Jigendo is famous for its moss garden and large stone ishidoro lanterns. - Shigain Monzeki was once Sakamoto’s main satobo residence for retired monks of Enryakuji temple where monks of imperial blood resided. Shigain Monzeki has been preserved, including its garden out behind the main hall composed of a small pond with a stone festooned hillside as backdrop.. The garden was designed by Kobori Enshu. This is the main residence of Enryaku-ji Temple where the head monks stayed over the years. The stone walls surrounding it give the appearance of a castle.
