Zen was not introduced as a separate school in Japan until the 12th century during the Kamakura period. Zen fitted the way of life of the samurai: confronting death without fear, and acting in a spontaneous and intuitive way. The five most famous Zen Temples of Kyoto are: Kencho-ji, Engaku-ji, Jufuku-ji, Jomyo-ji and Jochi-ji.
