Ryōgen-in (龍源院) is a subtemple of the Daitoku-ji Buddhist complex, located in Kita-ku, Kyōto, Japan. It was constructed in 1502. There are five gardens adjoining the abbot's residence, including Tōtekiko (東滴壺, claimed to be the smallest Japanese rock garden), Isshi-dan (一枝坦), Koda-tei (滹沱底), and Ryogin-tei (龍吟庭, a moss-covered garden which is claimed to be the oldest garden in Daitoku-ji Temple, and has been attributed to Sōami, 相阿弥).
