Views: OUMI KOHOU-AN JAPANESE GARDEN (4K)

Oumi Kohouan is a temple located in the tranquility of the mountains and greenery which consoles the spirit of Enshuu Kobori (1579 – 1647), Lord of Komuro Castle, known as one of the three great tea ceremony masters. Enshuu constructed Kohouan in Daitoku Ji (temple) in Kyoto, and this temple in contrast is called Ohmi Kohouan. The garden of this temple is well noted for using the natural environment applying Karesansui (dry garden style) and Chisen Kaiyuu Shiki Teien (Japanese garden style with layout of pond, miniature mountains, bridge, etc., where visitors can walk around). The garden is designated as scenic spot by the prefectural government and is known as the best spot for autumn leaves in Kohoku (Northern part of Lake Biwa)
