The main reason to visit Kannon-in, a Tendai Temple in Tottori City, is for the garden.
The garden took ten years to build, beginning in 1650, 11 years after the temple was rebuilt on this site.
It is a "Chisenkansho-shiki" style of garden which roughly translates as "pond viewing garden", and is meant to be viewed from a fixed viewpoint, not strolled around in.
The viewpoint at Kannon-in is from the veranda of the study hall.
The 600yen entrance fee includes a green tea to enjoy while contemplating the view.
