京のキー The loveliest garden

The loveliest garden

Chishaku-in's garden (as self-promoted) is one of Kyoto's finest and most famous. It was laid out about four hundred years ago and was inspired by the landscape about Mt. Rozan in China. With its artificial hills and ponds, come May the whole forest and springs are bursting with colour from the hundreds of azalea bushes that crowd the grounds.
