The Higashiyama Jisho-ji, also known as the Ginkakuji, is the ‘Temple of the Silver Pavillion’. Built in 1490 by Yoshimune Ashikaga, it is of great significance to the culture of Higashiyama. The most interesting characteristic of this beautiful structure is that the first level is in a domestic style. On the other hand, the second level resembles a Buddhist style. This unique amalgamation of the two styles of architecture is of great interest to visitors from around the world. Apart from the temple structure, there is also a vast garden with a variety of plants and shrubs. The sand garden is one of the most popular spots in this area.
