Daiho-in (大法院) is a sub-temple of Myoshin-ji (妙心寺), and one of the few where pictures can be taken.
Daiho-in was founded in 1625 as a family temple for the Nobuyuki clan. Its main feature is a hall overlooking a moss garden (of the roji type). A nice tea house can also be visited. The temple is only open to the public during the high seasons of autumn and spring.
