Just a second voice to exactly echo the opinions expressed by Seasondtraveller below. There are essentially no buildings here, so you'll need a good imagination to make much of it. It's not terrible, it's just not the most important thing to see.

There used to be a number of buildings here but very little is left, which is a bit frustrating. The pond is pretty and the park alright, as are the standing temple and shrine, but this place is less interesting than Chuson-ji or Bishamon.
