Because I thought it was crowded, I came here in the early morning. Yet I was optimistic. I found two previous visitors when I entered into the precinct of this temple which was built in 1282. They were just climbing the stairway. A big wooden gate stood at the top of the staircase.

This temple belongs to the Rinzai school which is one of the three sects of Zen in Japanese Buddhism. And Zen monks keep training in this temple even now.
