The temple's two ''hôjô'' (abbot's quarters) have been designated [[National Treasure]]s. Originally built by [[Toyotomi Hideyoshi]] around [[1585]] to serve as a new Seiryôden for the Imperial Palace, the ''Dai-hôjô'' ("Large Abbot's Quarters") was gifted to the temple in [[1611]] by [[Emperor Go-Yozei|Emperor Go-Yôzei]]. The shingled-roof structure is considered a valuable example of the ''[[shinden-zukuri]]'' architecture style, and faces the temple's front garden, said to have been designed by [[Kobori Enshu|Kobori Enshû]] around [[1600]]. The hall contains a [[Heian period]] sculpture of [[Kannon]] as its chief image of worship, and ''[[fusuma]]'' (sliding door) paintings by [[Kano Genshin|Kanô Genshin]] and [[Kano Eitoku|Kanô Eitoku]]. The ''ko-hôjô'' ("Small Abbot's Quarters"), meanwhile, attached to the ''dai-hôjô'', was previously a ''[[shoin]]'' (study) at [[Momoyama castle]]. It contains a famous sliding door painting by [[Kano Tanyu|Kanô Tan'yû]], depicting a tiger drinking from a stream.
