Tenryu-ji (Heavenly Tiger) Temple

10 Sagatenryuji Susukinobabacho, Ukyo Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture 616-8376, Japan

The main attraction at this temple is the 14th-century Zen garden. The temple is a popular place to sample Zen vegetarian cuisine (shojin ryori), which has its origins in Buddhist asceticism: great attention is given to the presentation and tofu plays a big role in the menus.
