  • It is a sugu from tenryuji temple world heritage in Arashiyama. I did not open this place all year, so I went to the special public in spring. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Autumn leaves seem to be beautiful.

  • It is one of the smaller temples but has a beautifully landscaped Zen stone garden which invites to a pleasant walk.  more »

  • After many visits to Kyoto, this was my first time at this temple. As it turns out, it is quite possibly one of my favourite temples in Kyoto. The garden was amazing with colours ranging from green to yellow to orange to deep reds. A large part is also covered in beautiful moss giving the grounds a magical feel to them. All of the paths are meticulously kept and they wind throughout the garden in an easy to follow route. I highly recommend this garden.
  • Kyoto is full of big temple, this one is clearly less impressive but so peaceful. Wonderful garden to wander and think. Finally, my favourite temple in Kyoto for me.
