Rikushu-no-matsu (Land Boat Pine) of Rokuonji Temple seen from the west side of the hojo (head priest's quarters), facing west-northwest. It is said that this pine was planted by Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. The branches were formed to look like a sailboat. The bow faces west toward the Western Pure Land of Buddhist lore. The buildings in the right foreground and far left are the hojo and ohjoin (large study), respectively. The roof of the kuri is visible on the far right.
