    Genko-an Temple is a Buddhist temple of the Soto sect of Zen Buddhism in the Kita Ward of Kyoto. Genko-an Temple is famous for its two windows that look out at the temple’s Japanese garden. One window is round (The Window of Enlightenment) and the other square (The Window of Confusion), even though they provide an almost identical view, the view appears very different to the viewer. Genko-an Temple was originally a hermitage constructed by the head priest of Daitokuji Temple. Genko-an Temple also features the Blood Ceiling, which was constructed from the floorboards taken from Fushimi Castle when it was being disassembled.
