Konchi-in, sub-temple of the Nanzen-ji complex, was reconstructed at about 1600 at its actual location. The dry garden was created by the famous garden designer Kobori Enshu in 1630. The garden lies between the Main Hall of the temple and the hillside in front of it with pruned shrubs and trees as a background for the garden. On the bank of the ocean of white gravel are three major stone works. At the left side the turtle island, on the right side the crane island, both of them the symbol of longevity and happiness. In the central part of the bank is a presentation of the Mount Horai and a flat worship stone.
