Entsu-in

Recommended
You enter Entsu-in via the garden of "great sorrow", after walking through a moss garden then a dry landscape garden. The latter represents Matsushima Bay and, read in reverse order, it illustrates the three main phases of life: the rough, streaked and smooth stones composing it respectively refer to birth, apprenticeship, and accomplishment. The path is bordered by maples, azaleas and camellias, and leads to the Sankei-den, the magnificently decorated mausoleum of Mitsumune, the grandson of Date Masamune.
