Nearly twenty years ago I read about a temple outside  Kyoto in a travel
guide. The book I read may have been *Kyoto : a cultural guide to Japan's
ancient imperial city, *but I can no longer lay my hands on it. According
to legend a young samurai lost his way in the forest, he was thirsty and
wandering here and there.  Suddenly an old man appeared.  When the samurai
asked for water, the old man  struck a rock and a spring gushed forth. A
temple now stands on the spot.  I would be indebted to you if you could be
 so kind as to get me the name of this temple, the legend behind and a
description of the place? Thank you.
