Ryoanji Temple is famous for its rock garden. 15 rocks are placed on raked white sand and many people visit this temple to feel serene atomosphere.
Although I had been told that it was a little garden beforehand, I felt a kind of dissapointment when I arrived there. I want to advise you, "Don't expect too much." Then you can enjoy the garden as you like.
You can enjoy the garden sittin on the veranda-like porch.
At this temple, you can find a water basin. Can you find four Chinese characters placed on the surface?
Akiko lives in a city next to Hakodate and loves to drive around Hakodate and surrounding area. I hope people who visit or live in the Southwest area of Hokkaido come to love the area, too. 函館の隣町在住で道南エリアのドライブ大好きAkikoです。道南を訪れたり、住んでいる人が土地を好きになってくれたらなぁ、と思います。
