Motsuji Temple Garden

The Pure Land Jodo garden at Motsuji Temple fell into disrepair and was restored after careful archaeological research. The temples have gone but the lake and islands can now be seen again. With Joruriji, it is one of the few examples of Pure Land Gardens, dedicated to the Amida Buddha.
