I love little nature paths and I felt like Ryoanji has one of the most beautiful grounds.
The main feature of the temple is the rock garden in the temple itself. I’m not quite sure what the meaning is – but I think that’s the whole point of these rock gardens. To just gaze into them and make of it what you will.
I’ll admit it. I much preferred the walking of the grounds over the rock garden. I can only imagine how beautiful it would be covered in snow or during the spring when it’s all in bloom.
