Large grounds with many gardens (unfortunately, each one seems to have an additional entrance fee). If you are a painter or admire brushwork, go to the main building and buy a ticket for a tour (in Japanese) that is the only way to get inside to see a 36-foot diameter dragon painting on the ceiling. It's worth it! There are no tours fron 11:30 am - 2:10 pm or some such odd time, so try to get there in the morning. It's a 20-minute walk from Ryoanji.
