It looks like the one at the entrance of the Ginkaku-ji (Silver pavillion) ;)
Am I wrong?

Ok, then it should be this temple.
As I can remember, this tiny zen garden lays just before a rock wall where stands a huge pine tree. This tree (and the wall) is delimiting the main internal court where is the Silver pavillion and the headless sand pyramid :)
This place is one of my favorites in Kyoto (I've been there twice) :D

Did you visit Kamakura (south from Yokohama) and Osaka? These cities are nice too, especially Kamakura with the Great Buddah [15m high kneed baby] :)

Never thought a rock of sorts could look so magnificent! :XD:

I imagine that people avoid stepping around the area. The gravel on the floor looks carefully and perfectly arranged. What's it supposed to be, the whole thing?
