Jingoji Temple Reviews
同日本其他參道一樣，這裏沒有太多水泥和金屬建築，仍然保留從前的石頭梯級，雖然有點難行，但古風濃厚。 上了一段樓梯之後，便是一個比較豁然開朗的地方，四周圍都是紅得可愛的楓樹。 這裏有幾間茶屋，可能風景實在太美了，好多遊客迷迷糊糊的就走去幫襯了。 雖然生意要緊，但茶屋老闆沒有太貪心，環境仍然保養得極好，唔食得都睇得。 茶屋賣的都是烏冬或蕎麥面之類的「例菜」，加上粗眉仔和豬豬現在又不肚餓，所以沒有幫襯。... more »In the same way as other Japanese, there is not much cement and metal building, still retained from the front of the stone ladder, although it is a bit difficult, but the ancient wind espresso thick. After a section of the stairs, it was a suddenly, surrounded by a maple tree of red and lovely. There are a few tea houses here, perhaps the wind is too beautiful, a lot of tourists dazed to go to help shirt. Although the business should be tight, but the owner of the tea house is not too greedy, the environment is still very good, not all the food can be done. Tea houses are sold in the Ukrainian or Keita of the kind of "food", coupled with thick eyebrows and pigs are not hungry, so there is no help shirt. Not yet in the temple, the wind has been extremely beautiful, thick eyebrows really want to stay here to take pictures. A section of the stone staircase from the teahouse is the doorway of the Temple of God. It's not too expensive to take 600 yen a person. A walk through the door is a square, the square side is and the atmosphere of the LU Soul Temple, visitors can not go in. Ming centered on around a few beautiful maple trees, coupled with the light line is absolutely good, itinerary into a beautiful painting. The temple is extremely large, but it is only a small part of the audience, but it has been enough for two or three hours. Jintang entrance gathered a lot of Buddha locals, but the order is good, a quiet to take off the shoes, Ann quietly go in, than the Chinese Buddhist temple is much more quiet. There is nothing special about the tower, the scenery around the circumference is also very general, do not go to no nuisance. The location of the Shinzo hospital is relatively far away, to walk a small section of the mountain Road to go. In the first place is an observation deck, there are a lot of people in this "earthen cast (Japanese: かわらけ cast), that is, a small pottery saucer lost out, meaning to drive away the nightmare." Pottery dish to 300 yen, good expensive, but a lot of tourists seem to do not mind, so sell the dish business well, one side to do a laugh. Suspension Cliff to Out is Jin Yun Creek, view open praise, but not very beautiful. The thick eyebrows and the pigs go to the other mountain road and return to the master's Hall, which is a dense maple tree, which is the most beautiful autumn color of the whole temple of God. The Temple of God is the largest of the three temples in Kaohsiung Mountain, and when we are on the observation, we remember to keep more time.
市営バスで高尾まで行きましたが、参拝道は土砂崩れで通行できないと書かれていましたが、気を付けていけば大丈夫でした。石段をのぼると楼門があり、拝観料を払うと五大堂や毘沙門堂、右手には金堂がありました。紅葉が素晴らしかったです。 more »Hopefully careful stated that Takao went in a bus, but visits the road impassable by a landslide, but was okay. Gate and climb stone steps and pay the admission fee was Kondo godaido, Morisaki and his right hand. Wonderful autumn leaves.
Nice temple. In a further away place but nice nature and scenary around. The river and beautiful trees and surroundings is amazing. Temple is dark inside with Buddhist shrines and idols inside and looks pretty around the outside. I found the temple behind this main temple to be quite interesting, being red and matching the autumn leaves during my time of visit.
Lonely Planet....you finally delivered. This made my whole trip to Kyoto worthwhile. I felt such calm here. Truly magical experience. Great to get away from the insanity of the popular temples in Kyoto. Oh...and I threw some clay discs into the valley!
