 Japanese Gardens: The original Japanese gardens were inspired by Buddhist and Chinese philosophy and later evolved to have their own distinct Japanese identity. The gardens found in Japanese temples and shrines are inspired by the Shinto religion and the belief in an ideal state of harmony. One of the most famous Zen Rock Gardens in Japan is the Ryoan-ji Zen Rock Garden in Kyoto.     

  Ryoan-ji is one of the most famous temples in Kyoto. I went to see this garden before and there were many tourists in this garden. As you can see, this garden is really simple. But it's famous for its simpleness. Ryoan-ji is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I recommend you to see this garden!!!
