Additional Information

Introduction

Tenryu-ji is a UNESCO World Heritage site constructed in 1339. Related to both the Ashikaga family and the Emperor Go-Daigo, the temple is held in high esteem but has suffered intense fire damage over the years, damaging its once pristine appearance. Designed by the celebrated Muso Soseki, the gardens combine aristocratic elegance with Zen Buddhist sensibilities. A seated Buddha from the Fujiwara period can be found inside the temple itself.
