Eshin-in Temple

Eshin-in Temple is also known as the "Temple of Flowers," and in spring and autumn, the garden becomes home to vast swathes of flowers that soothe the heart and calm the mind. Tradition has it that the temple began as the ancient temple of Ryusen-ji. Some time later, it was restored by the monk Genshin (Eshin Sozu), renowned as the author of the text "Ojo Yoshu" ("The Essentials of Rebirth in the Pure Land").
