Sanzenin Temple is the most famous place in the town of Ohara located north of Kyoto in a small basin at the western foot of Mt. Hieizan. Sanzenin Temple is famous for its beautiful cherry blossoms, coloring leaves and moss. It has two beautiful gardens called Juhekien and Yuseien that are called the best sights in North Kyoto. The main temple Ojo-Gokuraku-in is famous for Funazoko or boat's bottom ceiling that will make you feel like you are in an upside-down boat. The principle images of Buddha are bright gold Amida Nyorai Sanson-Zo, which symbolizes paradise.
Known for his exquisite landscape prints, Kawase Hasui was one of the most prolific and talented shin hanga artists of the early 20th century. He designed approximately six hundred prints total, primarily for the publisher Watanabe Shozaburo, although he also worked for several other publishers briefly.
