  • Really liked this temple because of its iconic design. In fact, probably one of the more favorite temples on the entire trip. It wasn't too crowded here and there were many little shops all around. Great to start off at and make your way to the other temples and shrines in the area. Easily accessible and easy to find.
  • When one thinks of Kyoto, Japan they will undoubtedly recognize this temple. It exemplifies the rich traditional history of not just the city but the Japanese architecture as well. If you have the opportunity, do get up early while the city is still sleeping to explore everything without having to worry about cropping out droves of tourists from your photos.
