  • A short distance from Dera is this little gem. Peace and silence embrace the visitor. If you feel like taking a small walk (only 500 meters from the tourist route) I advise you not to miss it.

  • One of the hidden treasures of Kyoto.. A must visit.. a quiet place where few tourist visit..
  • Quiet temple with a moss garden. You can get there from kiyomizu by walking in the back trough a little gate, you get a nice walk trough a Forrest. Only 100 yen to enter and it's very nice to just relax a moment after the busy kiyomizu. Definitely worth a look.
