Kyoto
Daitoku-ji Temple (Kyoto, Japan)

Notes:
The area is a flat garden or "hira niwa." A photograph on page 21 of the book Japanese Gardens, by Matsunosuke Tatsui (Tokyo: Japan Travel Bureau, 1958), shows an area virtually identical to this lantern slide at the Shūon-an Temple. However, this was not a site that appears to have been visited by the Garden Club of America tour.
Historic plate number: "8."
The Daitoku-ji site was visited by the Garden Club of America tour on May 22, 1935.
