That morning we will go to the Tenryuji temple in Sagano Kyoto by bus. I have heard that Tenryuji is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Arashiyama (嵐山) is a district on the western outskirts of Kyoto. It also refers to the mountain across the Katsura River (桂川), which forms a backdrop to the district. Arashiyama is a nationally designated Historic Site and Place of Scenic Beauty.
From the Togetsu-kyo (渡月橋) Bridge, we are walking to the Tenryū-ji Temple.
Tenryū-ji is the head temple of the Tenryū branch of Rinzai Zen Buddhism, located in Susukinobaba Ukyō-ku Kyoto. (京都市右京区嵯峨天龍寺芒ノ馬場町)
The temple was founded by Ashikaga Takauji (Great General) in 1339, primarily to venerate Buddha, and its first chief priest was Musō Soseki. Construction was completed in 1345. Musō Soseki (夢窓 疎石, 1275–1351) was a Rinzai Zen Buddhist monk and teacher, and a calligraphist, poet and garden designer.
In 1994, Tenryū-ji was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as part of the “Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto”.
Syoin (書院 room) is a traditional style of Japanese residential architecture with shoji screen (障子 paper sliding door ) , straw mats (tatami畳) and roka (廊下 corridor).
Left the Tahoden (多宝殿 Treasure house) of Tenryu-ji we are walking to the famous Chikurin (竹林 bamboo grove also called bamboo path).
