A short walk around Nanzen-ji Temple (4K)

Nanzen-ji Temple in Eastern Kyoto was founded in the 13th century and is the head temple of one of the most important Zen-Buddhism Schools in Japan (Rinzai School). The Emperor Kameyama built his reitrement palace on the site in 1264 and later converted the place to a Zen Temple. As one legend has it, a Zen Monk was able to drive away a poltergeist from the Emperors palace only though meditation, and the Emperor therefore dedicated his palace to the Rinzai School.
