One of the temples making up the Zen Buddhist Daitoku-ji complex, Daisen-in is best known for its art and gardens. Landscape paintings in both the Chinese and Japanese styles, noted screen paintings inside and gardens designed in the style of landscape paintings outside betray the influence of Taoist and Confucius teachings as well as Zen Buddhism.

The gardens were designed by a Zen priest in the early 16thCentury and the temple and his residence were built over the same period.
