The Rikushu( "land boat ") pine tree in the garden of the drawing room at Kinkakuji Temple, Kita-ku, Kyoto. The branches growing straight and high are the sail of the boat, and the thin branches growing near the root of the tree are the body of the boat. A wooden placard with "Rikushu no Matsu" stands almost hidden at the left. In the background are the white paper sliding doors, latticed shutters and tiled roof of the drawing room.
