Information About Nanzen-ji
Nanzen-Ji，also called Zuiryusan，is one of the most well−known Rinzai Zen temples in Japan.
Emperor Kameyama loved this beautiful place so much that in 1264 he built his detached palace here.
Later he became a student of the Zen Master Busshin Daimin Kokushi，and he dedicated the palace as a Zen temple in 1291.
