Jisso-in Temple

A monzeki temple related to the imperial family in Iwakura [Jisso-in]

It was founded in 1229 during the Kamakura period by Shizumoto, the grandson of Kanpaku Motomichi Konoe. It is a monzeki temple where priests from the royal family and senior aristocrats served as chief priests, and it has a deep connection with the imperial family. In the precincts, there are two gardens with different tastes: the rock garden "Kokoro no Niwa" with the mountain range of Hiei as a background, and the landscape garden with the mountain behind.
It is also famous as a famous place for autumn leaves, and the “floor maple” reflected on the floorboards between the reception hall and the waterfall is exceptionally beautiful.
