Japan's First Historic Site and Special Place of Scenic Beauty 'Sogen-chi Garden'

Tenryuji-temple is famous for the beautiful Japanese garden. This garden is Japan's First Historic Site and Special Place of Scenic Beauty. And I always feel Japanese elegance from the garden with a pond in the center and Arashiyama in the background.

A famous picture of Daruma and a ceiling picture of Dragon are also interesting. Visiting in early morning, you can see them without congestion.

Good Fortune By Mame-maki & Walking Around The Seven Deities! Setsubun-kai At A World Heritage Site

Here is not an ordinary Setsubun-kai, people walk around the pagodas of Zen Buddhism and gather the charms of the Seven Deities. There're many people with 'good luck bamboo grass' in their hands at the precinct. The sponsors throw roasted beans (mame-maki) and say 'in with fortune' (huku wa uchi). Let's take in lots of good fortune!
