Templo Zuisen-ji, Kamakura, Outono

Jardim de rochas simples desenhado para prática Zen

Por Tomoko Kamishima   03/10/2015

O sacerdote Muso Soseki construiu este jardim de rochas no Templo Zuisen-ji em Kamakura para a sua prática Zen, e este mostra a sua face rigorosa e severa. Aquando da queda do Período Kamakura (1333), Muso Soseki abriu as portas do templo a todos os samurais feridos e às suas famílias que tinham escapado da guerra. Ele e os seus seguidores cuidaram deles, e o templo tornou-se numa espécie de hospital de campanha. Dez anos mais tarde, ele construiu jardins mais relaxantes em Quioto, nos templos Saiho-ji e Tenryu-ji.

Born in the Portuguese countryside in 1990, I've been living in Japan since 2012. After finishing my Computer Engineering University Course in Lisbon, Portugal, I decided to study Japanese in Tokyo, with the purpose of continuing my studies there. After one year of studying of the language, I entered a Japanese Professional College where I finished my study in 2015. I am now working in a videogame Japanese company as Motion Designer. I also write in my blog about Japan. My goal is to introduce Japan to anyone who is interested in the culture, the language, the music, the anime, the food, and so on. And that's what you can find there: everything! Plus, my experience here as a Portuguese expat.
