Kōzen-ji Temple (Kiso Valley)

Established in 1434 by the 12th Kiso lord Nobumichi, Kōzen-ji Temple, also known as Kozenji, is a Rinzai buddhist Myoshinji temple of the Kiso and Yamakura clans. Small in size, this temple comes with many little wonders in the form of four different gardens with the Syoryu Garden, Shyumisen Garden, Mansho Garden and Kanuntei Garden (cloud view garden), which is a beautiful dry landscape garden where the lines represent the clouds and where the rocks represent the mountains.
