  • It is regrettable because the three mandala of the national treasure went to Ueno National Museum for the majority of buddha statues going around the precincts of Toji. (First in Ueno) At the end of the tour of Kanchi-in, this was a wonderful space. It is a place where you can relax in the tea room, in the garden, and everywhere you look. If you go to Toji, it is recommended that you visit this.

  •  It was built as the residence of the temple monk of Toji temple and the school (such as the university). Because it was used as a recommended school of not only Toji but also the entire Shinsei sect, it is located in the temple of the toto, but it is located in a special case honzan. Built in the early Edo period, the guest hall is a national treasure, and there is a painting called Miyamoto Musashi brush. It is said that the only road in Kyoto that leaves Kitadaimon and has Kanchi-in remains the width of the heian period. Tickets have a common ticket with Toji.
