A small garden: Zuiho-in, Daitokuji Temple Complex, Kyoto

Daitokuji, Kyoto sightseeing

This is an small garden in a Zen Temple.

The garden is covered with white raked gravel.

It is said that white gravel shows the ocean and stones show the rocked in the ocean.

Without the gravel and stones, this small space would be an useless space, but with them, the space changes the imaginary ocean and the veranda along it become a space to contemplate.
