With structures dating back as early as the Kamakura Period, the Shinshoji Zen Museum and Gardens offers a tranquil environment to experience various practices of Zen Buddhism. Opened in September 2016, the vast grounds of the Shinsho Temple have much to offer: a reconstruction of the teahouse designed by master Sen no Rikyu, the temple office building by Terunobu Fujimori, and an art pavilion and installation work by Kohei Nawa | SANDWICH are just a few of the architectural marvels to be found amongst its strolling gardens.
