Enkoji temple, Kyoto prefecture, Japan photo
Enkoji temple, Kyoto prefecture

At the foot of Mt. Hiei, a short walk from either Manshuin or Shisendo in eastern Kyoto, Enkoji Temple is one of many temples in that part of the city.

Founded in 1601 by Tokugawa Ieyasu in Fushimi, in the southern part of Kyoto, this Buddhist temple was moved to its current location in 1667.

Its mission has been to promote learning and scholarship, and so both monks and laymen were allowed as students.
