Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I am looking for information regarding what spider this is. I have tried to look it up with no luck. It was located in the garden at the Sekisho-in monastery in Koyasan, Japan. I found no other spider like it in 7 days of photographing the area. I am wondering if this is a previously undiscovered species of spider. I was fascinated by the distinct markings and unique body shape.
