  • Beautiful templen middle of forest very beautifull place :) i visit this place with my wife and here is soo silent  more »
  • I visited at about ten o'clock on Saturday, but there are not many worshippers, so I can go around the precincts at my own pace. It was a temple that I would like to go there again at the time of autumn leaves.

  • Beautiful temple. Especially during fall/autumn. A perfect place to snap a photo. Also its near the arashiyama bamboo forest. My top list of the most beautiful temple when i was in kyoto. Hope the gov or people there can preserve and look after the places for many generation to come.
  • No word to describe. Too beautiful. With only 500Yen you can enjoy the amazing view. Just 10 min from the tourist place bamboo path.
