Kozan-ji temple in Rakusei Toganoo, Kyoto Prefecture, is an ancient temple famous for its Choju Giga (Animal Caricatures). I parked my car in a parking lot by Shuzan Road, and as I entered the grounds of the temple, I was right inside of the mountain temple surrounded by a thick clump of trees. You feel the weight of its history by looking at the appearance of the stone steps, white walls and the moss covered stone fences.
