Ryosokuin Temple (両足院)
Ryosokuin Temple is a sub temple of Kenniji Temple. The Buddhist image of Bishamonten (Vaisravana) that Kuroda Kanbee’s grandson Kuroda Nagamasa carried at Sekigahara was donated here and is said to help with fortune and victory. Early summer is the best time to see the beautiful Chinese lizards tails that spring up at the garden’s waterside. It is possible to try seated zen meditation from an hour.

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
