The bamboos are planted parallel to the fence along the path going down the hill of the Ginkakuji Temple. It is so beautiful to look at. I love to see the naturally shave trunks of the bamboos.
One of the few temple "dry gardens" created with sand rather than pebbles. The function of the "sand cone" is to reflect moonlight on the pavilion. It was constructed in the 13th century.
This is a famous temple and popular sight seeing spot for foreign tourist. Some people highly appreciate Ginkaku-ji due to its simplicity and calmness. It's Zen garden is interesting.
