  • Horikawa-dori and Horikawa Teranouchi intersection are just east. I stopped by while walking around the area. Hosho-ji Temple is also called Doll Temple, and it is a temple of nunmon ruins. At the spring and autumn doll exhibitions, the historical dolls are open to the public and are very lively. At this time, it seems to be open to the public in the hall. Unfortunately, i could only see the gate when I visited because it was usually closed to the public.

  • I went to the doll exhibition of autumn. It is a small temple, but it is a temple of the Imperial household edge of successive. The Takaaki Emperor's Love Dolls were exhibited, but honestly, I thought there were a lot more exhibits. It is forbidden to take pictures, but the foliage in the garden was pretty good.

  • Easy to find. Lovely gardens. Photos not allowed!
  • I love dolls from an early age. It is close to the temple of the only one type Memorial shrine from Kyoto Imperial Palace. The doll of the beautiful woman like to talk to the gold folding screen in the beauty of the twelve single clothes now. The hand is combined and the mind is calm. Many dolls convey the kindness of women. A more beautiful mirror can be felt by the treasure. The power of the doll's soul is also from everywhere in the temple. The Red seal was also received at Terasa office.
