Ryoanji Temple

The Zen Buddhist temple “Ryoanji” is famous for its stone garden and is also registered as a World Heritage Site. The Japanese rock garden made of only 15 stones and white sand in 75 tsubo surrounded by a Tsukiji wall is magnificent.

The design of this garden is highly calculated so you can’t see all 15 stones at once, or the perspective is applied by lowering the wall towards the back,
