A hidden shrine in Kyoto〖Shinsen-en Garden〗



Today, I’m going to show you a hidden shrine in Kyoto;

Shinsen-en Garden (神泉苑) .

Shinsen-en Garden

Shinsen-en is a small Buddhist temple which built in 862 with a quiet garden and a pond.

Shinsen-en is right in front of Nijo Castle and when you enter inside, there’s a large pond and bridge which I felt mesmerizing.

I found a dragon-shaped houseboat (Yakatabune) in the pond when I was crossing the bridge!

Visit here if you have a chance!
