Tenryū-ji is a nice Buddhist temple in Kyōto, Japan close to the bamboo grove in Arashiyama. It was built in 1339 to satisfy the ghost of a former Tennō. In the 14th century CE the gardener Musō Soseki created a wonderful garden next to the main hall.

The temple became a UNESCO world heritage site in 1994. I loved the garden where you can see a mix of bamboo plants, a large pond and red Japanese maple. A real place to relax.
