 Kyozo, Tofukuji Temple

One of the Kyoto Gozan (five great Zen temples of Kyoto), Tofukuji is the head temple of the Tofukuji School of Rinzai Zen sect. The temple, which was founded in 1236, has a number of historically important buildings and aesthetically pleasing gardens, including Sanmon Gate (the National Treasure) and a famous moss garden designed by landscape architect Mirei Shigemori. Tsutenkyo Bridge surrounded by fiery red leaves is a must-see in autumn.
