Nanzen-ji Temple

A sprawling zen paradise surrounded by lush green hills

In the midst of nature and surrounded by lush green hills, Nanzen-ji Temple has an almost mystical feel about it. Dating back to the mid 13th century as the head temple of one of the schools within the Rinzai sect of Japanese Zen Buddhism, it holds historic and spiritual significance as one of the most important Zen temples in Japan today.
